Artists are invited to submit works that include painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, fiber arts and book arts for the Open Regional art exhibit.
Photography is the only medium not accepted for the show, which runs Thursday, May 2, through Friday, June 28, at Pendleton Center for the Arts, 214 N. Main St.
The Open Regional exhibit has been sponsored by the Arts Council of Pendleton for more than 35 years. Every other year, the medium is photography.
Cash prizes will be given in adult and teen divisions, as well as a peoples choice award based on voting from visitors during the show. Also, the Krazy Horse Quilters donated money for a pair of special cash awards that will be presented to artists whose work features textiles as an art medium.
Artwork must be submitted Saturday, April 27 between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Arts Center. Each artist can enter two pieces of work. The per item entry fee is $10 for adults and $5 for teens.
The sale of artists work is encouraged, but not required. A 30 percent commission will be deducted from all sales.
