U.S. National Deadline: February 24, 2019 –
The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) is excited to announce
the fifth national juried art show, RECYCLE 2019. We are honored once
again to have as our juror John Cloud Kaiser, Director of Education at
Materials for the Arts, to help us in this quest.
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.
The exhibit runs May 11 – July 7, 2019.
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.
John Cloud Kaiser is the Director of Education at Materials for the
Arts, one of the largest reuse centers in the U.S and a program of the
New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. Through art shows he
curates at MFTA Gallery and his work with his art group Free Style Arts
Association, he has been championing reuse-themed art in the museums,
streets, and schools of New York City since 2000. These works have
appeared broadly, from The Metropolitan Museum, to the NYC Parks Dept.,
to The New York Times. Kaiser graduated from New York University and is
currently working on a series of temporary sculptures for Storm King
Sculpture Center and Socrates Sculpture Park. Kaiser was recently
awarded the 2018 Arts Administrator of Year by the NYC Art Teachers
$3000 in cash prizes will be awarded including $1000 Best in Show.
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).
All artwork must be original in concept, design and execution. All work
should be non-utilitarian in nature. This is a fine art exhibition.
Early Bird deadline discounted entry fee, February 4, 2019; Final
Deadline February 24, 2019.
