We are excited to announce our third Black & White National Juried art show, opening July 29, 2017. And again this year, we are privileged
to have another of NY’s art elite as our juror, Alison Hokanson, Assistant Curator of European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
With her guidance, we look forward to another spectacular 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 large 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.
We really love art – in all media. As well as looking for skill in the use of a variety of materials, we look for how well that medium relates to the
concept or movement, and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror’s awards will reflect that artistic
judgment. Virtually every medium is accepted including: Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Photography, Pastel, Drawing, Print, Mixed Media, Sculpture,
Assemblage, Installation, Fabric and Video when part of an installation.

Show Details
Theme: 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 and white is primal, the underneath, the
foundation, of the opulence of color; black and 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 and White intends to explore this underground of survival and few words. All submissions are welcome in this exploration.
ELIGIBILITY: This call for submission 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 2D and 3D media, including film/video when part of an installation. All artwork must be
original in concept, design and execution. Note: Crafts, kit work or reproductions of original works in other media (such as giclee reproductions
of oil paintings), unless used as part of a mixed media work, will not be considered.
Oversize Work exceeding 72 X 72, Overweight work exceeding 30lbs, Assemblages and Installations are welcome at the discretion of BWAC
staff, but must meet all other specifications and be delivered, installed and removed by the artist (or their agent) upon prior arrangement
with BWAC. Any work not meeting these eligibility requirements can automatically be disqualified regardless of juror selection.
JUDGING: All judging will be on‐line. Entries that differ significantly from their digital images may be rejected. Decision of the judges is final.
SUBMISSIONS AND FEES: Only original works may be submitted (limited edition prints are OK). Works may be submitted in one or multiple
Early Bird Submissions (through midnight, May 10, 2017): $45 for up to three (3) images plus $5.00 for each additional image.

An exhibition featuring artists who do both drawings and paintings

The Rocky Neck Art Colony (RNAC) invites artists to submit work to be considered for inclusion in “Artist Drawings and Paintings”, a five-week exhibition at the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck, 6 Wonson Street, Gloucester, MA 01930.

Gallery Hours: Thursday - Sunday, 12:00 - 6:00 PM Opening Reception: Saturday, July 8, 4:00 - 6:00 PM

The intent of this exhibition is to engage viewers in an exciting- ambitious-experimental-traditional-new-materials/traditional-materials exhibition of both paintings and drawings. Many artists do both paintings and drawings but tend to show only one or the other. We are looking for large works as well as small. We will include one or more of the drawings submitted by each chosen artist AND also one or more of their paintings. All selected drawings will be exhibited on one floor of the Cultural Center, and all paintings will be exhibited on the other floor, so each artist will have work on both floors.

Each artist may submit up to 3 drawings and up to 3 paintings for one entry fee. The submitted paintings and drawings may be related or they may be completely unrelated. They may be part of a series, or be individual works.

We seek a variety of works from experimental to more traditional in all media. Only original work will be accepted.

The medium does not determine if a work is a painting or a drawing. There could be oil drawings and pencil paintings! It is up to the submitting artist to determine what is a drawing and what is a painting, and to label each work as such by including the word “Drawing” or “Painting” in the title.

Is the GLASS half full or half empty?

People in GLASS houses shouldn’t throw stones.

We work on shattering the GLASS Ceiling.

The ice is as smooth as GLASS.


What is so magical about this substance, made from sand, that it comes up in so many proverbs and sayings? 

It is magical – the invention of glass allowed us, for the first time, to be able to observe things while having a barrier to keep us warm, safe, and dry.  We can store liquids safely and know how much is left in the bottle. GLASS is not only a practical solution to so many situations, but also the foundation for an entire area of art, think of Dale Chihuly.  Whether you create wonderful images about drinking glasses, eye glasses, wavy window panes or glass beads, Murano glass or beach glass, it all works.

The landscape, whether grand or personal, has been a subject of photography since the beginning and played an important role in establishing photography as a fine art medium. Early on, both in history and most photographers experience, the landscape was one of most accessible and familiar subjects available.

The SE Center is looking for images of the landscape, whether grand vistas or more personal, intimate treatments. We're looking for photographers who can make a statement with their landscapes, pull us in and make us want to explore.

Our juror for the Landscape- Grand or Personal is Eliot Dudik. Eliot Dudik is a photographic artist, educator, and bookmaker exploring the connection between culture, history, and politics. His first monograph, ROAD ENDS IN WATER, was published in 2010. In 2012, Dudik was named one of PDN’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch and one of Oxford American Magazine’s 100 New Superstars of Southern Art.

Our pets can teach us how to relax or play. They seem to know when we have had a hard day or when we are sad.  

They speak to us in their own language, and somehow we understand. They help guide us and are always happy to see us. 

We feed them, and clean up after them, some would say they are like our children.  Some CAN protect us and, and certainly we can protect them. They show us unconditional love.

They are truly our companions.  

From the colorful koi in their ponds; to the watchful protective eyes of a service dog.  From the squawk of the crow, to the roar of the lioness. Mankind has always enjoyed the pleasure of having these companions at their side. You may be a cat person, a dog person or even a reptile- lover.  No matter our affinities,  we are often better human beings having had these many-legged friends in our midst. 

Who makes you smile when you come home from a long day? What makes you giggle like a child when you watch them play.  Who gives you pause when you experience their innocent glory, complexity, and single-minded purpose. 

Please share YOUR companion in a photograph.
