Another Opportunity to Think Bigger

I was intrigued by this call for entries that appeared this week in the New Haven Arts Council e-newsletter. I wish I had something available to enter. Maybe you do...


Brooklyn, New York
Deadline: March 10, 2014

Exhibit Dates: April 26 - June 1, 2014
Wide Open 5 Art Show
Sponsor: Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition
Venue: 499 Van Brunt St, Brooklyn, NY
Awards: $3,000
Juror: Paulina Pochoba of MOMA
Eligibility: The broad theme of "Wide Open 5" 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.

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).

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.

Fees: $45 for 3 images up to Feb 25; $65 up to March 10
Commission: 25%
E-mail: Jane Gutterman
Phone: 718 596-2506
