BLACK & WHITE 2017 – National Juried Art Show NYC

Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC)

Entry Deadline: May. 31

481 Van Brunt Street, Door 7
Brooklyn, NY 11231

The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition announces our 3rd Black & White National Juried art show opening July 29, 2017. We are privileged to have as our juror Alison Hokanson, Assistant Curator for Nineteenth-Century European Painting at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

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.
