Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: August 10, 2020 – The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) is excited to announce our fourth Black & White National Juried art show. BWAC looks forward to exhibiting artist’s work from all around the country, work in all sizes, subjects, and virtually all media including: Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Photography, Pastel, Drawing, Print, Mixed Media, Textile, Sculpture, Assemblage, Installation, and Film/Video when part of an installation.

On display September 26 thru Oct 24, 2020, we are devoting 8000 square feet to this exhibition in our unique gallery, a massive Civil War-era stone warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront in Brooklyn, NY. Its openness and 10ft ceilings afford us the opportunity to welcome large work.

We are privileged to have another of NY’s art experts as our juror, Jenée-Daria Strand. With her expert guidance, we look forward to another spectacular show! Putting it all together in our wonderful space will be a fellow artist and BWAC Curator Kenneth Jackson, creating the ‘look’ of the exhibition with his placement assignments.

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 2D and 3D media, including film/video when part of an installation.

All artwork must be original in concept, design and execution. Limited edition prints must be numbered. Crafts, kit work or reproductions (i.e. giclee) of original works in other media, unless used as part of a mixed media work, will not be considered.

Jenée-Daria Strand is the Curatorial Assistant for the Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum where she supports in the research and organization of numerous exhibitions, including “Out of Place: A Feminist Look at the Collection” and the upcoming “Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And.” Jenée-Daria has led and supported projects examining Black subjectivity through historical precedents, including her first independent co-curation of “what once was” in August of 2019 (Gloria Gail Gallery, NYC), and the Alvin Ailey x “The Dinner Party” by Judy Chicago performance collaboration for Women’s History Month 2020 (Brooklyn Museum, NYC), featured in ELLE Magazine… see more

As well as looking for skill in the use of a variety of materials, our juror will look for how well that medium relates to the concept or movement, and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror’s awards will reflect that artistic judgment.

10 winners will be juried on site by Jenée-Daria Strand with Award checks presented at the Opening Reception.

  • Best of Show: $1000
  • Best of Show Silver: $500
  • 8 Certificates of Recognition: $800 = $100 each for eight winners.
  • Peoples Choice Award: $200: The artists whose work is chosen ‘Best’ by attendees during the course of the show will receive a $200 check.

$35 for up to three (3) images plus $5.00 for each additional image

The juror’s results will be emailed by Monday, March 16, 2020.
