The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) is excited to announce our first really Affordable Art Show, a national juried show opening October 3, 2015.
Our juror is Carolyn Ramo, Executive Director of Artadia, a not-for-profit organization which has awarded over $3 million to more than 300 artists. Ramo was a partner at Taxter & Spengemann, a contemporary art gallery that focused on emerging artists, and the Production Director at David Zwirner gallery. Ms. Ramo has also worked at Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
This is a selling show with art priced for anyone and everyone. Thousands of NY art lovers and collectors will see your work up close and personal. It is time to expand your collector base in NYC. To make it easy for new collectors, all work submitted must be for sale at $499 or less. You will get 75% of the selling price.
We really love art – in all media. As well as looking for skill in the use of a variety of materials, we look for how well that medium relates to the concept or movement, and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror’s awards will reflect that artistic judgment. Virtually every medium is accepted including: Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Photography, Pastel, Drawing, Print, Mixed Media, Sculpture, Assemblage and Fabric.
