East End Arts Council is holding an open call for artist participation in the 18th Annual Community Mosaic Street Painting Festival on Sunday, May 25, from 12 to 5 p.m.

This annual event provides fun for all members of the family, and includes street painting on East Main Street, a craft market for local artists and artisans, live music and entertainment, children's face painting, drumming, dance, food, and much more.

Over 5,000 local residents and tourists convene for this tradition on Memorial Day weekend each year, and local artists and musicians can showcase and sell their work for local residents and friends. All happenings will take place in downtown Riverhead on East Main Street, between Roanoke Avenue and East Street, and on the grounds of East End Arts (133 and 141 East Main Street).

Street painters must register in advance, and pre-registered artists will be matched with a sponsored square on a first-come-first-serve basis. Chalk and blending materials will be provided. For $20 each, street painting squares are also available for purchase the day of the event. All proceeds benefit the East End Arts Council.

The registration deadline is Thursday, May 15.
