Berkeley College is pleased to announce its “Change in Brooklyn” exhibition at the Brooklyn Campus Gallery, 255 Duffield Street, Brooklyn. More than 50 original works of art were submitted by Brooklyn artists. About half of these were accepted for the exhibit and competition.
The opening artists’ reception of the “Change in Brooklyn” exhibit will be held on Friday, April 15, at 5:30 pm.
According to Robert Keiber, Berkeley College Curator, the selected works reflect a diverse range of styles.
“I am impressed with the number of excellent artists in Brooklyn, and I hope to spotlight many of them with solo shows throughout the year at both the Brooklyn Campus and New York City Midtown Campus galleries,” he said.
The call for entries of original artwork for the exhibit was open to all Brooklyn artists over the age of 18 working in traditional media (oil, acrylic, and watercolor). Photography and computer generated art were also accepted. The pieces had to be at least 24” x 36” framed.
The first place award is a solo show at the Berkeley College Midtown Campus Gallery, 3 East 43rd Street, New York, NY 10017. Second and third prizes are a two-person show at the same location.
