Recycle, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s national juried show of art crafted from cast-off, discarded, and re-purposed materials, will be a celebration of ingenuity and imagination.

Call for artists application

We are seeking to exhibit sophisticated two- and three-dimensional art created in the re-use genre.  To help us in this quest, we are privileged to have as our juror, Elissa Goldstone, Director of Exhibits at NYC’s Socrates Sculpture Park.

Recycle – National Juried Art Show NYC: May 9 – June 14, 2015. This call for submission is open to all residents of the U.S. and its Territories 18 years of age or older.

$2800 in cash awards:

  • Most innovative use of material:  $500
  • Peoples’ choice: $250
  • Certificates of recognition:  $1050 – $150 each for seven winners.

Ours is a truly unique gallery – a massive, 8,000 square foot 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.

The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is an organization seeking to empower living artists, run with dedication and passion by the artists themselves.
