River Arts is putting out a call to artists to submit work for its next exhibition. The juror for the exhibition will be nationally-recognized Maine painter Connie Hayes. The exhibition will open Friday, Oct. 1 with a reception that evening from 5 to 7 p.m.

Connie Hayes lives in Rockland. She received her master of fine arts degree from Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia, and Rome; her bachelor5 of fine arts from the Maine College of Art in Portland; and her bachelor of arts degree from the University of Maine.
