Wide Open 2 (juried exhibition)

Ree ja motion portraiture
Ree Ja motion 1

I'm pleased, and honored to learn that my photograph "Ree Ja motion 1" was selected from amongst 1600 submissions by noted juror Nathan Trotman of the Guggenheim Art Museum in N.Y.

Artists and photographers from around the country submitted a total of 1600 works of which 144 have been selected to exhibit in the show "Wide Open 2" being put together by the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition, or BWAC.

The exhibit will run from March 12 - 27, 2011, Weekends from 11-4PM
Opening reception is Saturday, March 12 from 1-6PM

I had been accepted into the show last year "Wide Open 1" and can tell you that the work on display is quite a treat to view and experience.

If your in New York and can come on down, its really a fantastic show and well worth while. Learn more about it by wvisiting the BWAC website.

Congratulations, Gary! This photo is well deserving of the honor. I admired it when you first posted it a while back.

My painting "Loan Modification Request" is currently on the 'wait list' for Wide Open 2. I'll find out Thursday if it makes it in or not. Fingers crossed. It would be in good company if it makes it...

Good luck!
