Exhibit your work in a truly unique gallery - 25,000 square 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 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.
The broad theme of "Wide Open 8" 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. This juried show looks to explore the idea of "wide open" in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche.
Artists accepted into Wide Open 8 can also send one additional work that will be exhibited in our Affordable Art area. All works must be smaller than 16" x 20" (including frame, if framed) and must be priced for sale at $500 or under.
Juror: Cara Manes, Curatorial Assistant in the Department of Painting and Sculpture the Museum of Modern Art.
