Wide Open 4


The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition presents Wide Open 4, a national juried exhibition and sale. It runs May 11 to June 16, 2013, in 8,000 square feet of our Civil War-era warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront in Brooklyn, NY.  Carrie Springer, Senior Curatorial Assistant at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, will serve as the show’s juror. Work in all sizes, subjects, and media, except film (it’s almost completely wide open) are welcome.

The broad theme of “Wide Open 4” 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.

Cash prizes totaling $3100 will be awarded.
