Black & White 2017

black & white

BWAC announces our third Black & White National Juried art show, opening July 29, 2017.  And again this year, we are privileged to have another of NY’s art elite as our juror, Alison Hokanson, Assistant Curator of European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

We bathe in the beauty of color and spin thousands of words describing the experience that the cone cells transmit to our brain.  In reality, they are not nearly as numerous as our rods, the cells that register light and dark, the black and white of our experience.  Our rods are less articulated in language; fewer words are generated to describe that experience.  Black and white is primal, the underneath, the foundation, of the opuce of color; black and white is where we register motion and, when the cones do not have sufficient light, our rods optimize our survival in the night woods.

Black and White intends to explore this underground of survival and few words.  All submissions are welcome in this exploration.

$3000 Cash Awards

Exhibition runs from July 29 – August 20, 2017.
