BLACK & WHITE 2017 - National Juried Art Show NYC
Calls for Submissions
- Art Organization
The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition announces our third Black & White National Juried art show, opening July 29, 2017. Our juror is Alison Hokanson, Assistant Curator for Nineteenth-Century European Painting at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. $3000 in cash awards, including $1000 Best in Show Gold. The exhibit runs July 29 - Aug 20, 2017. We bathe in the beauty of color and spin thousands of words describing the experience that the cone cells transmit to our brain. In reality, they are not nearly as numerous as our rods, the cells that register light and dark, the black and white of our experience. Our rods are less articulated in language; fewer words are generated to describe that experience. Black and white is primal, the underneath, the foundation, of the opulence of color; black and white is where we register motion and, when the cones do not have sufficient light, our rods optimize our survival in the night woods. Black and White intends to explore this underground of survival and few words. Ours is a truly unique gallery—a massive Civil War-era warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront in Brooklyn, NY. Its enormous space affords us the opportunity to exhibit really huge work, and we welcome it. This call for submissions is open to all residents of the U.S. and its Territories 18 years of age or older. This is a juried exhibition for artists working in all traditional and non-traditional 2-D and 3-D media, including film/video when part of an installation.
