Black and White – Call for Artists
Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition is excited to announce our second Black & White National Juried art show.
Deadline: 10 Jun 2015
We are privileged to have another of NY’s art elite as our juror, Christiane Paul, Adjunct Curator of Media Arts at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Theme: 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; black and white 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.
$3000 in cash prizes, including Best of Show Gold of $1000.

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.
