Call for Entries: BWAC Prints 2021

National Juried Art Show
NYC, May 8 – June 20, 2021

The Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) is excited to announce our first inaugural BWAC PRINTS 2021 National Juried art show, opening May 8, 2021.

Ours is a truly unique gallery – a massive Civil War-era stone warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront in Brooklyn, NY. We will devote 8000 square feet to this exhibition. Its openness and 10 ft. ceilings afford us the opportunity to welcome large work. BWAC looks forward to exhibiting artists’ work from all around the country, work in all sizes and subjects of print media. All of our shows are now in person as well as virtual on during stated show dates.

Entry Fee: $35/per set of 3 images
Submission Deadline: February 28, 2021 at midnight.

Theme: The exhibition will celebrate the print medium and feature contemporary artists whose studio practices include printmaking. Works will be judged on traditional printmaking techniques and innovative approaches in contemporary printmaking.

These include lithography, relief, intaglio, silk screen, photopolymer plate (i.e. solar plates), and monotype. All accepted entries will also be shown on the Virtual BWAC Gallery Exhibition Space on
Please note: Solely digital and photographic prints are not eligible.
