Wide Open 6 – Call for Artists

Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is excited to announce the sixth annual national juried art show, Wide Open 6, opening May 9, 2015.

Call for artists application.

Deadline: 24 Mar 2015

Again this year, we are privileged to have another of NY’s art elite as our juror, Brooklyn Museum of  Art’s, Rujecko Hockley, Assistant Curator Contemporary Art.

The broad theme of “Wide Open 6” encompasses all the possibilities of knowledge and freedom and love – wide open spaces…arms wide open…eyes wide open – but as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite – wide open to attack…corruption…failure. What kind of fantasy is this? What does it really indicate? This juried show looks to explore this idea of “wide open” in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche.

This call for submission is open to all residents of the U.S. and its Territories 18 years of age or older.

$3000 in cash awards:

  • Best of show gold: $1000
  • Best of show silver:  $500
  • People’s choice: $250
  • Curators’ choice: $250
  • Certificate of recognition:  $1000 – $100 each for ten winners.

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.

We will be using 8,000 square feet for this show, and look forward to exhibiting artist’s work from all around the country, work in all sizes, subjects, and media, except film (it’s almost completely wide open).

For more information, contact bwacinfo@aol.com.
