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

  • Best of show: $1000
  • Most innovative use of material: $500
  • Peoples’ choice: $250

XO, Dumbo – Call for Artists

Drawing upon both 5 Front’s history, ArtBridge is looking for an artist/a team of artists who are able to visually communicate the quirky, contemporary climate of Dumbo while paying homage to its history and situation as a Historic Landmark District.

Call for artists application

Deadline: 11 Nov 2015

When drafting the proposal, artists must give special consideration to the colors and forms of the surrounding architecture and neighborhood. Dumbo is marked by the convergence of new and old; many of the original buildings that were built to be centers of industrial production remain, but were repurposed for residential occupation, artists studios and small businesses. 5 Front Street is no exception, as it was built in 1834–plans for the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge were discussed there. Its exterior has been largely unchanged, until now.

ArtBridge will provide an honorarium to the selected artist and all materials will be generously provided by Liquitex.

ArtBridge empowers emerging artists to transform urban spaces. New York City currently has a staggering 192 miles of street-level construction scaffolding. This ubiquitous construction eats away at the fabric of our neighborhoods. ArtBridge transforms this eyesore into a canvas for local, emerging artists. These exhibitions result in incredible exposure for artists, while artfully reinvigorating our urban landscape.

Domesticated Space Travelers – Call for Artists

Galerie Project is looking for artists of all mediums in the New York City Metropolitan area to submit for inclusion in our upcoming Fall exhibition at Brooklyn Fire Proof, (119 Ingraham St, Brooklyn, NY, from November 13-15, 2015.) The theme is ‘Domesticated Space Travelers.’

Call for artists application

Deadline: 29 Aug 2015

Imagine an alternate universe where our pets are the ones exploring outer space instead of humans.

What if Rex the dog, Mittens the cat, or even Wiggles the hamster left the comforts of Earth to set out on a very grand adventure to discover a new planet, find new life on Mars, or even lead the race to space exploration!

‘Domesticated Space Travelers’ could spawn a new future for mankind. Our furry – or slimy – creatures could give us new hope in addition to the tweets and purrs. But what would it look like? That’s where you, the artist, comes in.

Imagine your favorite pets flying through far-off galaxies and discovering new worlds using your art medium of preference. All mediums and styles welcome. Submit your artwork or portfolio along with a 100-word or less artist statement about your work. Winners will be announced on August 31, 2015.

Great chance to be a part of an exhibition taking place at a lovely gallery in Brooklyn.

More than a project and more than a platform, Galerie Project brings together artists from across the globe to create, collaborate and connect.
