About BBA Gallery

BBA Gallery works with emerging and mid-career artists. These are industry terms, labels that help simplify complexity. Artists don’t need a label – they need a champion: a committed gallery who kicks doors for them, introduces their work to collectors, and shares their vision with the world.

That’s why BBA Gallery launched in 2017. They find and represent artists with unique talent and ideas, a strong vision, and a compelling style. Age or education are not the most important criteria. BBA Gallery is more interested in authenticity, perseverance, professionalism, and outstanding artworks, no matter the medium.

BBA Gallery began as an artist-run project space in 2015. The ethos has been clear since then – to seek out talented and passionate artists and give them all the nurture they need.

Momentum 2019 – Call For Artists

Momentum 2019 – Call For Artists

The New York Center for Photographic Art announces a call for artists for Momentum 2019. Though a photograph is a snapshot in time, the world around us is in constant motion.  This call is about how you capture the idea of motion/momentum in a single frame, photographs that send clearly a message to the viewer that the subject or the camera/lens is moving. Is the position of the subject the indication, a wave arched to crash, or a ballerina in mid air? Is it the subject or background blurred as a speeding train you have panned with background buildings a blur? This call is not about still life, landscape, or posed portrait images.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 17 Mar 2019

Examples for Momentum 2019 are everywhere including the silky vision of water over a waterfall taken at a slow shutter speed, water droplets frozen in time, trees bent in blowing wind, ripples of a boat’s wake, and fireworks. Sports, transportation, and animals each afford a huge number of possibilities and, of course, there are endless ways camera and zoom action can draw the viewers eye. This is an online gallery exhibition only.
