Black And White Art Show – Call For Artists

Carrollwood Cultural Center announces a call for artists for the Black and White Art Show, an art exhibition that showcases the powerful, yet graceful, restraint required for creating art using only a black and white palette. While the subject matter is open, the color palette is limited to tones of black, grays, and white. Original works only.

Limited pedestals for 3-dimensional pieces are available.

About Carrollwood Cultural Center

The Carrollwood Cultural Center is and arts-based non-profit organization located in Hillsborough County, north of Tampa, Florida. The Center hosts classes, events, concerts, camps, community groups, art groups, emerging artists, and more.

The Gallery is a living, growing, and constantly changing, display of creative talent of visual artists – both local and international. They have several galleries throughout the building:

  • Main Theatre for main exhibits

Located in the heart of Carrollwood Village, the campus includes a the main building complete with a stage, dance floor, art studios, computer lab, and conference rooms as well as a sister building, The Studio, which provides additional space for classes, performances, room rentals, and gallery displays.

The magic of the Carrollwood Cultural Center began several years ago with a special partnership between Hillsborough County and the Friends of Carrollwood Cultural Center (FCCC), a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for residents through arts and culture. Together, they have brought the community together through the arts.

At the Carrollwood Cultural Center, you are invited to learn a new skill, revisit an old one, or simply “do that one thing you’ve always wanted to do.”

Through art, ceramics, dance, music, and theatre you will gain a new appreciation for the arts – perhaps even discover a talent you never knew you had. Regardless of the reason, there is always something new and exciting to learn at the Carrollwood Cultural Center.

At the Carrollwood Cultural Center, magic is around every corner. Music fills the air, colors dress the walls, dancers float on stage, and drama evokes emotion. The Center has been honored to host an array of local talents from visual artists, instrumentalists, singers, dancers, and theatre groups.

Black and White – Call for Artists

Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition is excited to announce our second Black & White National Juried art show.

Call for artists application

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.

25% commission on sales.

Early Bird deadline 5/26; save $!

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.
