BWAC’s curator for Re-cycle 2018 is once again Renee Radenberg. 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 once again greatly honored to have our juror, from Materials for the Arts.  This year it is the Director of Education, John Cloud Kaiser.

Recycle:  BWAC is seeking original artwork from artists working in repurposed materials. Entries must incorporate at least 50 percent of repurposed, recycled, or reused materials. The theme is open to any medium resulting in2‐Dimensional or 3‐Dimensional work.

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 upcycling movement and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror’s awards will reflect that artistic judgment.

Description:

BITEme is an open-call juried exhibition inviting submissions exploring everything and anything about food. All styles and media are welcome to submit.

Food Art for thought.  There has been a long history about the relationship between food as art, as sensual, as political. We see food as art everywhere we turn. Food pulls all of our senses to attention immediately. Chefs strive to impress us with every bite being a beautiful and sensual experience. Some of my favorite food inspired movies are, Babette’s Feast and Sideways. My favorite visual food artists are Giuseppe Arcimboldo, still lifes of the Dutch golden age with tables teeming with fruits, ducks and silver platters, Post-Impressionist painter Cezanne, pop artists Wayne Thiebaud and Andy Warhol, political Feminist artists Miriam Schapiro and Judy Chicago and artist Tiberio Simone, just to name a few. This art historical theme and my passion for cooking and food experiences is how the BITEme show developed. So, go ahead, it’s ok to play with your food.

The Goetemann Artist Residency welcomes artists from across the globe to live and work for one month on Rocky Neck’s beautiful seaside environment. The Residency is a solo studio space for your personal exploration.

Renowned artist and teacher, Gordon Goetemann founded the Residency to benefit the artists who lived and worked in the Rocky Neck Art Colony.  Originally called the Artist Residency Program, it was renamed in his honor in 2010. Together with his wife, the artist Judith Steele Goetemann, they envisioned a program that would invite artists to share their methodology and creative ideas with the Rocky Neck Art Colony and the community at large.

That initial foundation led to the program that we are so proud of today. Because of the work of a devoted volunteer committee of artists, the summer season is now dedicated to welcoming artists from across the globe to live and work for one month in this beautiful seaside environment.

Applications are juried each spring by our committee and three gifted artists are each awarded a one month residency term which includes a live-work studio space and access to a rich cultural community. Residents chosen are requested to host an opening and closing talk, and have a few open studio hours to engage with our community. We accept applications from January 1st to February 10 2018.

  • | Fee: $65.00 USD per 3
  • | Additional Entries: $5.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: BWAC

WIDE OPEN 9: 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 the idea of “wide open” in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche.

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. BWAC’s curators for Wide Open 9, Anatole Iwanczuk and Therese Urban 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, and subjects, and media.

Submission Deadline: Early Bird January 19 or Application Deadline February 16, 2018.

Gallery Exhibition Dates: Saturday May 12 – Sunday June 17, 2018, weekends 1‐6P.M.

The Still Life

  • | Start Date: 1/7/2018 12:00:00 AM (PT)
  • | End Date: 2/18/2018 11:59:00 PM (PT)
  • | Fee: $35.00 USD per 5
  • | Additional Entries: $6.00 USD per 1
  • | Host: SE Center for Photography

Still life photography depicts inanimate subject matter, typically a small group of objects. The still life photograph gives the photographer almost full control over lighting, mood, and composition of the image. And because they directly influence the creation process, still life images reflect the creativity and style of the photographers themselves. 

Our juror for Still Life is Kimberly Witham. Kimberly Witham was awarded a BA from Duke University and an MFA from the University of Massachusetts. Her artworks have been exhibited widely since 2001, and placed into numerous private collections in the US.

Elephant in the Room:

Be inspired to create artwork that defines a very large issue that everyone is acutely aware of, but nobody wants to talk about.

There was a popular and silly song in the 1950's, "Close the Doors, They're Coming in the Windows".  What about those doors and windows and arches and frames and tunnels?  There are so many ways to capture them:  looking at them, or through them.  We can poke our hand out the window to test the weather, or just see a wonderful scene a little differently when framed by an arch or array of tree limbs in a park.

For this call your images can focus on the "portal" itself like a closed door or a wonderful windowsill or the view through the portal to the other side. Does it frame the main subject of the photograph or does it add another dimension, such as the distortions of old glass or reflections in windowpanes.
