Ours is a truly unique gallery - 25,000 square f feet in a Civil War-era warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront in Brooklyn, NY. The vista of New York Harbor, spanning the Statue of Liberty to the Verrazzano Bridge is one of the best in the city. Our 18,000 annual visitors also enjoy the nearby restaurants, bars, IKEA and Fairway Market. Its enormous space affords us the opportunity to exhibit large 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, and subjects, and media.
We have two synergistic missions:
  • to assist emerging artists in advancing their artistic careers
  • to present the art-of-today in an easily accessible format.
Recycle 2019, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition's national juried show of art crafted from cast-off, discarded, and re-purposed materials, will be a celebration of ingenuity and imagination. We are seeking to exhibit sophisticated two- and three-dimensional art created in the re-use genre.
As well as looking for skill in the use of material, we want to see art that demonstrates the importance of conserving our limited natural resources. We look for how well the medium relates to the upcycling movement and how fully the artist's intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror's awards will reflect that artistic judgment. $3000 in Cash Awards
Note: All judging to enter this competition will be on-line. Decision of the judges is final.
Online postings, mailed postcards, press-releases to regional media.
