RECYCLE 2018 – National Juried Art Show NYC
Entry Deadline: Feb. 20
RECYCLE 2018, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s national juried show of art crafted from cast-off, discarded, and re-purposed materials, will be a celebration of ingenuity and imagination. We are seeking to exhibit sophisticated two- and three-dimensional art created in the re-use genre. To help us in this quest, we are honored to have our juror from Materials for the Arts. This year it is the Director of Education, John Cloud Kaiser.
We are seeking to exhibit sophisticated two- and three-dimensional art created in the re-use genre. As well as looking for skill in the use of material, we want to see art that demonstrates the importance of conserving our limited natural resources. We look for how well the medium relates to the up-cycling movement and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. Entries must incorporate at least 50 percent of repurposed, recycled, or reused materials.
