Two arts organizations have announced a call for entries for two upcoming exhibits.

The North Country Arts Council seeks entries for its “Flights of Fancy” exhibit. It will involve a virtual opening at 6 p.m. May 14 with a virtual gallery available after the opening.

The exhibit, according to NCAC, will be a show of all things whimsical, mythical and make-believe, featuring work “that presents ideas, subjects and themes that are fantastical, otherworldly and whimsical — but lift the spirits and delight your senses.”

Work in all media besides video, film and sound will be considered. The entry deadline is April 28.

The exhibit is also planned for physical display, with location to be determined. It’s scheduled to run through June 18.

An application form and more information on the exhibit is available at
