NOTE: This opp listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!
U.S. National Deadline: February 20, 2018 – The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is excited to announce the fourth national juried art show, RECYCLE 2018. To help us in this quest, we are again honored to have our juror from Materials for the Arts. This year it is the Director of Education, John Cloud Kaiser.
We are seeking to exhibit sophisticated two- and three-dimensional art created in the re-use genre. As well as looking for skill in the use of material, we want to see art that demonstrates the importance of conserving our limited natural resources. We look for how well the medium relates to the up-cycling movement and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. Entries must incorporate at least 50 percent of re-purposed, recycled, or reused materials.
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.
John Cloud Kaiser is the Director of Education at Materials for the Arts, one of the largest reuse centers in the U.S and a program of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs… see more.
$3000 in cash prizes will be awarded including $1000 Best in Show.
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.
Only original works may be submitted. Early Bird Submissions fee thru January 23, 2018. Final submission deadline February 20, 2018. See details here.
