Works on Paper

For many, the freedom and immediacy afforded by working on paper is instrumental to their practices, spawning new
techniques and aesthetics, subjects and methods. Works On Paper encompasses a diverse range of media — from
drawing, printmaking, painting, collage, and beyond. Far from being confined to studies and experiments, works on
paper represent important modes of art-making in their own right.
BWAC is seeking artists exploring the creative potential of working on paper. Works On Paper will showcase artists with
an experimental spirit and exploration of the interaction between artist and paper in the process of creating art. No
photography. Original and framed work only.

Fine Grit: Art & Ideas In Wood

Fine Grit is a national juried exhibition of contemporary artists who use wood as a primary material in their work. From traditional techniques such as hand carved sculpture, woodcuts and pyrography to more recent technologies such as laser engraving and 3D printing, artists have long used wood as a source material and medium. Wood comes directly from nature and each piece has its own unique lifecycle, evident in the processes artists and other makers utilize while working with it.

Particular interest will be given to artists who consider the origin of their materials and who use wood as subject matter, addressing topics such as forestry, ecology, architecture, human consumption and the changing climate.


Realism vs. The Abstract

A national juried exhibition. Color, forms, shapes, and subject matter are all concepts used by artists to express themselves through REALISM — art which aims to reproduce reality. By contrast, THE ABSTRACT is art which can convert those same concepts into patterns of color, forms, and shapes. Therefore, artwork of either genre can be submitted, This exhibition will attempt, by way of their formal arrangements, to draw associations between these two seemingly disparate genres.
