Opening Saturday May 13th

Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC)’s 3 New Spring Art Shows

Rites of Spring

Wide Open 8

Recycle 2017

Saturday, May 13, 2017


On May 13th, BWAC opens the iron gates of their historic pier gallery in Red Hook for its 25th Annual Spring Pier show, with three distinctly different exhibits: Rites of Spring, where light-filled airy galleries are loaded with images of rebirth and renewal from over 150 artists; Wide Open 8, a national juried show selected by MoMA assistant curator, Cara Manes with 120 pieces in all media chosen from over 1500 submissions; Recycle 2017, juried by Harriet Taub of NYC’s Materials for the Arts, which has introduced many of our visitors to the new re-use genre. 65 pieces are exhibited.


Special Music events:


Saturday, May 13th


Music by RB5 – jazz pianist Richard Bennett and his irreverent group of NY improvisers.


And there will be a really fun collaborative art installation where visitors will be invited to help build a giant string sculpture, made of reused yarn, ribbon and rope, with NYC’s premier reuse facility, Materials for the Arts, a unit of the Department of Cultural Affairs.


Sunday, May 14

Performance by singer, songwriter, and progressive folk musician, Zac Messick 3PM


Other special events are planned for every day of the show – including the Sunday performance series and Saturday reading series, which aims to celebrate and savor the wondrous variety of Brooklyn-based wordsmiths.


The show is open weekends 1-6PM and runs through June 18.
