Call for Artists: WIDE OPEN 7 - National Juried Art Show NYC

May 7-June 12 
Brooklyn, NY

presented by the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC)
500 artists in a gallery setting
Deadline: March 15

BWAC's 25,000 square foot gallery is in a Civil War-era warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront in Brooklyn. The vista of New York Harbor spanning from the Statue of Liberty to the Verrazano Bridge is one of the best in the city. Our 18,000 annual visitors also enjoy the nearby restaurants, bars, IKEA and Fairway Market. 

Our gallery's 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, and subjects, and media, (it's completely wide open).

Theme of the show:
The broad theme of "Wide Open 7" 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 the idea of "wide open" in all the hidden niches of our collective psyches.

Who we are:
The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC,) is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Organized in 1978 by 16 artists looking for a place to exhibit, BWAC has grown to become Brooklyn's largest artist-run organization with over 400 members. 

Our juror:
We are privileged to have another of NY's art elite as our juror, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Beth Saunders, Curatorial Assistant. Before joining the Met as curatorial assistant, she was a Jane and Morgan Whitney Art History Fellow.

$65/3 images, plus $5/each addt'l image
