Wide Open 4 AND On the Waterfront
Two Art Shows - One Location
Wide Open - This is BWAC’s fourth annual national juried art show, once again with a world-class juror, Carrie Springer, senior curatorial assistant, Whitney Museum of American Art.
On the Waterfront - Opening concurrently with Wide Open 4 is On the Waterfront Zone A, BWAC’s 21st annual spring pier show. More than 200 artists will be exhibiting 1000 works in every medium, from the traditional to the cutting edge. Special events are planned for every day of the show – including the Sunday acoustic performance series, UnPlugged in Red Hook, professional development classes, as well as Readings in Red Hook (May 19) - a reading by local authors about their Sandy experiences.
The all-day Meet the Artists reception on May 11th, an opportunity for visitors to meet and chat with the exhibiting artists, will feature the punky folk music of The Rob Crowe Situation, a 9-piece band of guitars, vocals, banjo, violins, saxophone and percussion.
The newly rebuilt BWAC gallery is in Red Hook, with its trendy boutiques and restaurants and the city’s best view of the Statue of Liberty - across from the Fairway supermarket and down the block from IKEA. It’s a perfect destination for a spring weekend, accessible by public transportation and biking is a breeze!
