The Psychiatric Research Institute at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences has issued a call to artists for a juried exhibition to raise awareness of what PRI calls "the healing power of art."

Paintings, drawings and photographs are eligible; work must be 22-by-30 inches or larger. Deadline to submit is 5 p.m. April 26.

Judges are Greg Thompson, of Greg Thompson Fine Art, and ceramic artist Jane Hankins. Prizes of $1,500 for first place, $1,000 for second and $500 for third will be awarded. Selected submissions will be donated to the PRI's permanent collection, and several will appear in the recently opened women's inpatient unit.

To enter, submit an 8-by-10 inch PDF or low-res photo to Artists whose work was selected will be honored at a reception at UAMS on May 15; May is National Mental Health Month.
