Deadline: March 15, 2016 – WIDE OPEN 7 – Call for Entries

Open Call for Submissions from artists all over the USA for a juried exhibit, Wide Open 7, to be exhibited in the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) gallery  – an 8,000 sf Civil War-era warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront.  The enormous space of the gallery affords us the opportunity to exhibit really huge work, and we welcome it.

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 psyche.

Final Submission Deadline: March 15, 2016
Gallery Exhibition Dates: May 7 – June 12, 2016 weekends 1-6 PM
