Deadline: May 31, 2017 – BLACK & WHITE 2017 – Call for Entries – National Juried Art Show – NYC

BLACK & WHITE – Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coaltion (BWAC) is We are excited to announce our third Black & White national juried art show, opening July 29, 2017.

Important Dates:
Submission Deadline: Early Bird May 10 or

.
Gallery Exhibition Dates: July 29 – August 20, 2017 weekends 1-6 P.M.
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 29, 2017 from 1-6 P.M.

Details:
We bathe in the beauty of color and spin thousands of words describing the experience that the cone cells transmit to our brain.  In reality, they are not nearly as numerous as our rods, the cells that register light and dark, the black and white of our experience.  Our rods are less articulated in language; fewer words are generated to describe that experience.  Black & white is primal, the underneath, the foundation, of the opulence of color; black & white is where we register motion and, when the cones do not have sufficient light, our rods optimize our survival in the night woods.  Black & White intends to explore this underground of survival and few words.  Our unique, enormous space affords us the opportunity to exhibit really huge work, and we welcome it.

Juror:
Alison Hokanson is an Assistant Curator for Nineteenth-Century European Painting at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. She holds a BA from Brown University and an MA and PhD from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, where she studied Minimalism before writing her dissertation on Belgian Realism and Symbolism. Her recent projects include exhibitions on the whaling scenes of Joseph Mallord, William Turner and on The Met’s collection of Pre-Raphaelite art and design. She publishes and lectures on topics ranging from Impressionist painting to Symbolist drawing, and was previously a juror for the National Arts Club’s Artist Members Exhibition.
