Elected Artists

Elected Artist Membership is the goal toward which many of our artist members work. To qualify, the artist must prove acceptance into four Mystic Arts Center juried shows within any twenty-four month period.


Elected Artist Members Receive:

  • Several opportunities throughout the year to exhibit and sell your work
  • A network of artists to collaborate and connect with
  • Increased promotion through Mystic Arts Center’s e-blasts, newsletters, and website

*The Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, which holds its annual exhibit at the Mystic Arts Center each spring, has a reciprocal agreement with Mystic Arts Center whereby all works juried into the CAFA show are eligible for both CAFA and Mystic Arts Center juried requirements. This agreement provides Mystic Arts Center artists an additional opportunity each year to submit to a juried show, thus bringing the total number of juried shows per year to three.
