The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC), Brooklyn’s oldest arts organization, established in 1978, is excited to be presenting an exhibition, during its Fall 2018 season which will spotlight works of transformative significance, curated from the work of MFA candidates from local colleges and universities in NYC area, as follows:

Creative paths, including those that journey through MFA programs, are often (and hopefully) littered with breakthrough works that manifest after a period of uphill struggles, slips outside one’s comfort zone, and even collisions with fortuitous chance.  These transitional pieces represent metamorphic events, and act in turn as gateways to expanded perspectives, clarifications of vision, amplified expressions of intent, and even radical changes of direction. While these works may not fully define, or embody one’s current practice at this moment, they stand as artifacts of evolutionary shifts in the artist’s practice.
