The Rangeley Friends of the Arts has announced a call to artists for three different juried shows with cash prizes: Art in August — an outdoor Art and Crafts Show and Sale, The Western Mountain Photography Show — a juried competition and exhibit, and The Artists Trail Fine Art Exhibit — a new juried show of original art.

The RFA’s 39th annual Art in August will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 1, in Oquossoc Village in the Rangeley Lakes Region. This  open-air exhibit and sale will feature cash prizes in two categories. The application deadline is June 15.

The deadline for digital submissions is July 19.

• Artists: The Artists Trail Fine Art Exhibit, a new juried show of original art in any medium, will feature the sites of the Artists Trail from Oct. 5 through Nov. 2.
