Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC)’s 2017 Spring Art Shows
Palette Unlimited and Black and White
Saturday, August 5th, 2017 and Sunday, August 6th, 2017

It’s summertime for the artists of the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition and the art-lovers who eagerly await every BWAC exhibit.  Mid-summer is also the middle of BWAC’s fortieth year; for our 2017 Summer Shows we present the juried Black & White 2017 exhibit and Palette Unlimited. Palette Unlimited is the exhibiting members’ 25th annual summer show, with over 150 artists exhibiting. Our third national juried Black & White show presents artwork by artists from around the country.  Noted juror Alison Hokanson, Assistant Curator in the Department of European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, selected 110 pieces from almost 1200 submissions to put together this spectacular exhibit.  

Admission to the Gallery and all its special events is free, donations gladly accepted.
The show is open weekends 1-6PM and runs through August 20
481 Van Brunt (Door 7) in Red Hook.
