BWAC Black And White 2017 – Call For Artists


BWAC Black And White 2017 – Call For Artists

Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) announces a call for artists for BWAC Black and White 2017. This national juried art show in NYC runs July 29 – Aug 20, 2017.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 31 May 2017

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. It 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.

This call for submissions is open to all residents of the U.S. and its Territories 18 years of age or older. This is a juried exhibition for artists working in all traditional and non-traditional 2-D and 3-D media including film/video when part of an installation. BWAC will use 8,000 square feet for this show.

Juror: Alison Hokanson, Assistant Curator for Nineteenth-Century European Painting at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

BWAC Black and White 2017 cash awards:

  • Best of show gold: $1000
  • Best of show silver: $500
  • Peoples’ choice: $250
  • Curators’ choice: $250
  • Certificate of recognition: $1000 ($100 each for ten winners.)

25% commission on exhibition sales.

Artists accepted into BWAC Black and White 2017 can also send one additional work that will be exhibited in our Affordable Art area. All works must be smaller than 12” x 16” (including frame, if framed). Works must be priced for sale at $500 or under.
