Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
May 12-June 17
Presented By: Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC)
Deadline: February 16
Application Fee: $65/3 images
Ours is 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. 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:
The broad theme of "Wide Open 9" 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 pen 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 psyche.
Our juror is Carmen Hermo, Assistant Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Brooklyn Museum.
