Glass 2017 – Call For Artists

Glass 2017 – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) announces a call for artists for Glass 2017.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 19 Jun 2017

Is the glass half full or half empty?
People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
We work on shattering the glass ceiling.
The ice is as smooth as glass.

What is so magical about this substance, made from sand, that it comes up in so many proverbs and sayings? It is magical – the invention of glass allowed us, for the first time, to be able to observe things while having a barrier to keep us warm, safe, and dry. We can store liquids safely and know how much is left in the bottle. Glass is not only a practical solution to so many situations, but also the foundation for an entire area of art. Think of Dale Chihuly. Whether you create wonderful images about drinking glasses, eye glasses, wavy window panes, or glass beads, Murano glass, or beach glass, it all works.

Chosen artists for Glass 2017 will have a live exhibition in a New York City gallery, Jadite Gallery, in October, 2017. There will be an exhibition catalog and an online gallery on the NYC4PA website. Juror, Traer Scott, has juried shows for NYC4PA previously and is an excellent juror.

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.
