Unhinged, Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s Fall Group Art Show presents one open show and three juried shows in one sweeping exhibition.

Presented in the Ground Floor gallery is a national juried show of 100 pieces, selected from 1100 submissions by artists all around the country. N. Marshall Price, Curator of Contemporary and Modern Art at the National Academy
Museum and sole juror of the show says:

In selecting the works for Unhinged I was not only looking for a variety of mediums and approaches to various subjects but also artists who approached traditional mediums in new and creative ways.

Expect the unexpected in the variety of materials and techniques used by artists who were chosen for their originality and expertise – e.g., check out the giant interactive lego construction.

On the second floor, is a different version of Unhinged, open to all BWAC exhibiting artists who have something to show and say.  You be the judge of this narrative show that marries visual art with the written word.  If you’ve ever wondered what an artist was thinking, this might be your opportunity to gain some insight. 200 artists will be exhibiting works in every medium, from the traditional to the cutting edge.

Also on the second floor, two juried shows:  Art in Clay and Un-Inhibited.

While ceramics have been used for both practical and aesthetic reasons for thousands of years, the medium has experienced an amazing renaissance among artists in the past decade.  Art in Clay explores ceramics, evolved from their utilitarian roots and reinvented by regional artists as exciting, innovative contemporary art.  Juried by the Museum of Art and Design’s Chief Curator, David R. McFadden, it is a stunning show of 50+ pieces.

Un-Inhibited is BWAC’s first international show.  It’s a celebration of uninhibited creativity and technology.  What could be more global than communication through smart phones or other smart devices?  Artists have been invited to communicate through imagery created with the touch of a button and scads of ingenuity. 250 works will be displayed on large screens, plus an exhibition of the printed versions of the prize winners.
