Material Matters – Call For Artists

Material Matters – Call For Artists

The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) announces a call for artists for Material Matters: Breaking With Tradition. As an expression of culture, art is often unconventional, rebellious, experimental, and insightful. Yet, art, by necessity, relies upon familiar traditions to achieve its unconventional ends. This is why the better we know our traditions, the more cleverly we can break them.

Deadline: 12 July 2018

The annual exhibition, Material Matters, asks artists who work in a variety of traditional materials to consider the traditions underpinning their work and the rules and conventions they break in method or material. Artists are invited to submit original works that change traditional ways of seeing by demonstrating a break with the past or suggesting a new way forward, whether toward logical or illogical conclusions.

The juror, Melissa Stern, artist and journalist, will be looking for artists’ work that illuminates their vision and scope. All award selections will be made by the juror. Awards will be presented at the Opening Reception, Saturday, October 6, 2018.

This is a national juried exhibition for artists 18 years of age or older working in clay, glass, wood, metal, or fiber/textile alone or in combination. Only submit original works. All work must be for sale. BWAC will retain a 30% commission on all exhibition sales.

Material Matters Cash Awards

  • Gold — $250
  • Silver — $150
  • Bronze — $50
  • Five (5) Certificates of Merit

This is not about equipment, it is about ideas and vision. We consider our various manifestations as we see through the lens of others.
