BWAC Black And White 2017 – Call For Artists


BWAC Black And White 2017 – Call For Artists

Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) announces a call for artists for BWAC Black and White 2017. This national juried art show in NYC runs July 29 – Aug 20, 2017.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 31 May 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. It 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.

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. BWAC will use 8,000 square feet for this show.

Juror: Alison Hokanson, Assistant Curator for Nineteenth-Century European Painting at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

BWAC Black and White 2017 cash awards:

  • Best of show gold: $1000
  • Best of show silver: $500
  • Peoples’ choice: $250
  • Curators’ choice: $250
  • Certificate of recognition: $1000 ($100 each for ten winners.)

25% commission on exhibition sales.

Artists accepted into BWAC Black and White 2017 can also send one additional work that will be exhibited in our Affordable Art area. All works must be smaller than 12” x 16” (including frame, if framed). Works must be priced for sale at $500 or under.

XO, Dumbo – Call for Artists


Drawing upon both 5 Front’s history, ArtBridge is looking for an artist/a team of artists who are able to visually communicate the quirky, contemporary climate of Dumbo while paying homage to its history and situation as a Historic Landmark District.

Call for artists application

Deadline: 11 Nov 2015

When drafting the proposal, artists must give special consideration to the colors and forms of the surrounding architecture and neighborhood. Dumbo is marked by the convergence of new and old; many of the original buildings that were built to be centers of industrial production remain, but were repurposed for residential occupation, artists studios and small businesses. 5 Front Street is no exception, as it was built in 1834–plans for the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge were discussed there. Its exterior has been largely unchanged, until now.

ArtBridge will provide an honorarium to the selected artist and all materials will be generously provided by Liquitex.

ArtBridge empowers emerging artists to transform urban spaces. New York City currently has a staggering 192 miles of street-level construction scaffolding. This ubiquitous construction eats away at the fabric of our neighborhoods. ArtBridge transforms this eyesore into a canvas for local, emerging artists. These exhibitions result in incredible exposure for artists, while artfully reinvigorating our urban landscape.

Domesticated Space Travelers – Call for Artists


Galerie Project is looking for artists of all mediums in the New York City Metropolitan area to submit for inclusion in our upcoming Fall exhibition at Brooklyn Fire Proof, (119 Ingraham St, Brooklyn, NY, from November 13-15, 2015.) The theme is ‘Domesticated Space Travelers.’

Call for artists application

Deadline: 29 Aug 2015

Imagine an alternate universe where our pets are the ones exploring outer space instead of humans.

What if Rex the dog, Mittens the cat, or even Wiggles the hamster left the comforts of Earth to set out on a very grand adventure to discover a new planet, find new life on Mars, or even lead the race to space exploration!

‘Domesticated Space Travelers’ could spawn a new future for mankind. Our furry – or slimy – creatures could give us new hope in addition to the tweets and purrs. But what would it look like? That’s where you, the artist, comes in.

Imagine your favorite pets flying through far-off galaxies and discovering new worlds using your art medium of preference. All mediums and styles welcome. Submit your artwork or portfolio along with a 100-word or less artist statement about your work. Winners will be announced on August 31, 2015.

Great chance to be a part of an exhibition taking place at a lovely gallery in Brooklyn.

More than a project and more than a platform, Galerie Project brings together artists from across the globe to create, collaborate and connect.
