Wide Open 11 is a national juried show, hosted by BWAC and juried by Paulina Pobocha, Associate Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture, Museum of Modern Art!
Now in its eleventh year and as its name implies, the broad theme of this exhibition looks to explore the idea of “wide open” in all the hidden niches of our collective psyche; It encompasses all the possibilities of knowledge, freedom and love: wide open space; arms wide open; eyes wide open. Yet, as with all things, there is the inevitable opposite: wide open to attack, corruption and failure.
Despite the global pandemic, art shows are still going on. They have moved into virtual galleries, online catalogs, Instagram Live and ZOOM. The ripple effects of digital media merging with the physical art world will be felt for years. I am here for it all.
Opening This Month
On Saturday, May 30th, BWAC virtually opened Wide Open 11.
Fiber 2020 has been extended to July 8th. Visit the online gallery here.
Twilight Off The Bow was accepted in the WIDE OPEN 11 art exhibition by juror Paulina Pobocha, Associate Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, New York!
Only thing is, due to covid-19 the show has been postponed until later this summer. I’ll let you know when Opening Day is rescheduled. There will be a reception and juror’s award winners will be announced at the Opening whenever that is.
