Show Details:

Theme: 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 opulence 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.

Eligibility: This call for submission is open to all residents of the Metro New York Area (from the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut); 18 years of age or older. This is a juried exhibition for artists working in traditional and non-traditional 2D and 3D media, except for film/video. All work must be original in concept, design and execution. Note: Crafts, kit work or reproductions after original works in other media (such as giclee), unless used as part of a mixed media work, will not be considered. Work may be submitted in one or multiple media.

Oversize Work, Assemblages and Installations are welcome at the discretion of BWAC, but must meet all other specifications and be delivered, installed and removed by the artist upon arrangement with BWAC Staff.

Judging: Final judging will be on site. Entries that differ significantly from their digital images may be rejected. Decision of the judges is final.

Submissions and Fees:

BWAC requires an online entry. All entry fees are non-refundable. $30.00 for up to three (3) images plus $5.00 for each additional image.

All entries must be received by midnight June 8, 2011.
