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.
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.)

Flux Factory is currently looking for cultural producers of all kinds to join the Flux community for 3, 6, 9, or 12 month Flux Factory residencies starting in the Summer or Fall of 2017.
Deadline: 1 Feb 2017
Flux Factory cultivates a spirit of openness and generosity through a unique collaborative and participatory approach to realizing its residency and public programs. Each resident is responsible for their own funding, though Flux Factory can help with this process.
Flux Factory Residencies
Flux Factory residencies benefit from an immersive environment that encourages experimentation and peer to peer resource sharing. Residents work together to shape and realize Flux’s expansive programming. They propose and lead exhibitions and educational events. Flux Factory nurtures individual practices by offering professional development opportunities including one-on-one studio visits, group field trips, and monthly salons. Our labyrinthine building includes 16 studios, a gallery, silkscreen studio, wood shop, co-working office, communal kitchen, library, and rooftop garden.
About Flux Factory
Flux Factory is a 21 year old non-profit arts organization, artist collective, and international residency program located in Long Island City, Queens, NYC. It is located one subway stop away from Manhattan. It is committed to building a sustainable community for diverse cultural producers including visual artists, builders, curators, community organizers, chefs, activists, musicians, and writers.
In August 1993, seven artists rented part of the second floor of a former spice factory next to the East River in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The group came together as an informal artist collective to create an alternative platform to the commercial gallery scene.
Flux Factory was born out of the needs of emerging artists who come to New York City to take part in the cultural nexus. By 1998, Flux membership had doubled and the living room, with a new stage, evolved into a destination for art events and performances of all kinds. Supper parties and performances occur each Thursday, a tradition which continues with our monthly Flux Thursdays salon and potluck. Flux became an official 501 (c)(3) nonprofit in 1999.
In 2009, Flux Factory moved to its current location, an 8,000 square feet, three story, building in Long Island City. The new location provided an impetus to professionalize the residency program. Residents are now selected based on merits and their commitment to collectivism. Today Flux Factory hosts around 40 artists in residence per year. Flux commissions new work through quarterly exhibitions and residents produce public events at a prolific pace.
