Competitions Wide Open 8
U.S. National Deadline: March 5, 2017 – The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is excited to announce our eighth annual national juried art show, Wide Open 8. We are privileged to have another of NY’s art elite as our juror, the Museum of Modern Art’s Cara Manes, Assistant Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture.
The exhibit runs May 13 – June 18, 2017. The broad theme of “Wide Open 8” encompasses all the possibilities of knowledge and freedom and love—wide open spaces…arms wide open…eyes wide open—but as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite—wide open to attack…corruption…failure. What kind of fantasy is this? What does it really indicate? This juried show looks to explore this idea of “wide open” in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche.
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. All artwork must be original in concept, design and execution. All work should be non-utilitarian in nature. This is a fine art exhibition.
$3000 in cash prizes will be awarded including $1000 Best in Show Gold.
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. We will be using 8,000 square feet for this show, and look forward to exhibiting artist’s work from all around the country, work in all sizes, subjects, and media, except film (it’s almost completely wide open).
Please direct all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Organized in 1978, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is a 501.c.3 non-profit corporation. BWAC’s 25,000 square foot gallery is in a Civil War-era warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront. The vista of New York Harbor, spanning the Statue of Liberty to the Verrazano Bridge is one of the best in the city. Our 18,000 annual visitors enjoy viewing every medium and style of artwork, our shows are as spectacular as the setting.
