Arts Center East is showcasing the work of artists who make 3D art! Open to artists who work in clay, ceramics, pottery, glass, woodworking, found object sculpture/assemblage, paper sculpture and 3D fiber work, plaster sculpture, metalwork, and more. Whether you sculpt for the love of form or you create functional pieces, we want to display your work!


When submitting your artwork, please be as specific as you can about the dimensions and weight of your pieces (please include the weight in the “dimensions” box in EntryThingy). Arts Center East is able to provide pedestals to display small to medium-sized pieces. No artwork can be affixed to the walls. If you are submitting a larger piece, please be advised that it is the responsibility of the artist to be able to deliver the piece and bring it into the gallery. If you have questions, please email us at or call 860-871-8222.

*Artists who wish to submit large sculpture are welcome to; you may be given the option for your artwork to be displayed on the Arts Center East lawn, if they are weather-safe.
