Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition:

 an expression of culture, art is often unconventional and rebellious; experimental and insightful.Yet, art by necessity relies upon familiar traditions to achieve its unconventional ends.This is why the better we know our traditions, the more cleverly we can break them.

The annual exhibition, Material Matters, asks artists who work in a variety of traditional materials — clay, glass, wood, metal or fiber/textile — to consider the traditions underpinning their work and the rules and conventions they break in method or material. Artists are invited to submit original works that change traditional “ways of seeing” by demonstrating a break with the past or suggesting a new way forward, whether toward logical or illogical conclusions.

Opening Reception October 6th 1:00-6:00 pm
