U.S. National Deadline: January 19; February 16, 2018
– The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is excited to announce our
eighth annual national juried art show, Wide Open 9. Our prestigious
juror is Carmen Hermo, Assistant Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler
Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum.
The exhibit runs May 12 – June 17, 2018.
The broad theme of Wide Open 9 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 this idea of “wide
open” in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche.
This call for submissions is open to all residents of the U.S. and its
Territories 18 years of age or older. This is a juried exhibition for
artists working in all traditional and non-traditional 2-D and 3-D
media, including film/video when part of an installation. All artwork
must be original in concept, design and execution. All work should be
non-utilitarian in nature. This is a fine art exhibition.

$3000 in cash prizes will be awarded including $1000 Best in Show Gold.
Ours is a truly unique gallery—a massive Civil War-era warehouse on the
Red Hook waterfront in Brooklyn, NY. Its enormous space affords us the
opportunity to exhibit really huge work, and we welcome it. We will be
using 8,000 square feet for this show, and look forward to exhibiting
artist’s work from all around the country, work in all sizes, subjects,
and media, except film (it’s almost completely wide open).
Only original works may be submitted (limited edition prints are OK).
Works may be submitted in one or multiple media. Early Bird Submissions
fee thru January 19, 2018. Final submission deadline February 16, 2018. See details here.
