Wide Open 3 Juried Art Show NYC: Call to Artists - Deadline January 23, 2012
Wide Open 3 Juried Art Show NYC
Call to Artists - Deadline January 23, 2012
We are excited to announce the third annual national juried art show, Wide Open 3, opening March 18, 2012. And once again we are fortunate to be joined by a very prestigious juror--Charlotta Kotik, Curator Emerita of Contemporary Art at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. With her direction, we look forward to a really awesome show.
The broad theme of "Wide Open 3" encompasses all the possibilities of knowledge and freedom and love--wide open spaces...arms wide open...eyes wide open--but as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite--wide open to attack...corruption...failure. What kind of fantasy is this? What does it really indicate? This juried show looks to explore this idea of "wide open" in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche.
