Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: June 25; July 9, 2017 – The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition announces a call for artists for its upcoming juried exhibition, ‘Material Matters’. We are seeking work that explores ideas about form over function in work using clay, glass, wood or metal alone or in combination. If your work inhabits these boundaries, we are looking for you!

On display September 23-October 15, 2017.

This is a national juried exhibition for artists 18 years of age or older working in clay, glass, wood or metal alone or in combination. All artwork must be original in concept, design and execution. All work must be handcrafted by the artist. Mass production work and commercially manufactured pieces will not be accepted. Only original works may be submitted.

All work must be for sale.

Lilian Tone, Assistant Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA, will be looking for artists’ work that illuminates their vision and scope. This presents the possibility of selected artists having more than one artwork juried into the show.

$850 in cash prizes will be awarded including $500 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).

Early bird June 25 fee $55. Late July 9th fee $65/8 images; $5/each addt’l.
