BWAC header year-end 2013


Wide Open 5  (April 26-June 1)
Artists are asked to explore the meaning of wide open in art, in life, in medium, in expression, in composition, in experience, in dreams or in reality.  We are thrilled this year to have another world-class juror to select our show – Paulina Pobocha, Assistant Curator of Painting and Sculpture at MOMA.  100 pieces of art will be accepted to exhibit from approximately 1800 submissions.   2014 BWAC exhibitors get an extra three images.  Write for more information.

Outer Limits (April 26-June 1)
This  is a shout-out for  an  alien  encounter to all science fiction   and fantasy  fans, star-beings and interplanetary  travelers,  extraterrestrials and interdimensional entities:  you are all invited to participate and attend our science fiction  fantasy  ART EXHIBIT and  costume walk about.  We are excited about Outer Limits – it’s bound to be out of this world! 

Out of Order (July 26-August 17)
The majority of the ground floor will be used for a juried exhibit, but in keeping with the inviolable precept of BWAC - the right to participate in shows with minimal artistic restrictions, the entire second floor will be for members, on or off theme .  And once again, we are planning an exciting opportunity for exhibiting artists to show a larger “body of work” in adjacent panels*.    You can create your own mini retrospective of your oeuvre - a chance for you to invite family and friends to see more of your work than fits normally on one panel.

Imagine This (September 20 – October 26)
Our Fall Group Art Show will continue our series of fall narrative shows where artists share their process, emotion, intent. We will also continue with the two very unusual and fabulous shows-within-the-show that we started last season:  Clay as Art is a juried show of regional artists whose completely non-utilitarian work elevates clay from craft to art.  Uninhibited is an international juried show of a new art form - art created on smart devices (like iphones and tablets) with all the art viewable on wall-mounted screens.
