FAR & WIDE National

Filed in Events - Upcoming by on December 1, 2019

POSTPONED – Exhibition Dates TBA

Reception: TBA


Artists are invited to submit up to five works that show deft handling of materials and clarity of vision. Our jurors will be looking for work, of any genre, that reflects both a vigorous studio practice and thoughtful glimpse into the artist’s inner life.

JURORS: Jackie Hoving and Andrew Prayzner,
Co-directors, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, New York

AWARDS: Arthur Harris Best in Show, $500

Introduced in 2017, FAR & WIDE National is open to artists living anywhere in the United States. Because of its importance in the WAAM program as our flagship national show, the jurors are paramount to this exhibit and they alone establish the framework used to choose the work. This year’s jurors are Jackie Hoving and Andrew Prayzner, Co-directors of Tiger Strikes Asteroid, New York. TSA is a network of independently operated, artist-run exhibition spaces with locations in Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Greenville, SC.

About the Jurors

Andrew Prayzner from Tiger Strikes Asteroid
Andrew Prayzner is an artist, educator, and co-director of Tiger Strikes Asteroid NY. He has twice been a resident at Yaddo and holds an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania, and a BFA from the University of Hartford. Based in Brooklyn, NY, he has participated in numerous national and international group exhibitions including the Aldrich Museum (Ridgefield, CT), Housatonic Museum of Art (Bridgeport, CT), The Wassaic Project (Wassaic, NY), Scotty Projects (Berlin, Germany) and SFA Projects (New York, NY).  In the summer of 2015, Andrew was a resident at Studio Kura in Fukuoka, Japan. He concluded the residency with a solo exhibition of nocturnal drawings titled One Hundred Views of Nothing. In 2016, a solo exhibition titled Horizontals was presented in the project space at Morgan Lehman (New York, NY). This January, Andrew exhibited twelve new paintings at the Hearst Corporation’s midtown gallery for an exhibition titled Art Now 2019: Metamorphosis, Changing Climate.

Jackie Hoving from Tiger Strikes Asteroid
Jackie Hoving lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. As a current co-Director of Tiger Strikes Asteroid in Brooklyn she has had the opportunity to curate several shows and was included in the Artist Run Satellite Show in Miami. Her Solo Show at Ripon College titled Presence included a large wall mural installation and portraits. She was also included in a traveling exhibition titled In Search Of… at Rhodes College, University of Kansas and then in Bushwick, NY at TSA Gallery. Her work was on view in shows at Storefront Gallery in Brooklyn and a show at the Drawing Museum in Sweden. Her solo-show at Rebekah Templeton Gallery in Philadelphia, titled Crypsis, featured two large wall mural installations that incorporated painting, printmaking, wallpaper, animation and collage. This is emblematic of her practice, which is engaged in the concealing and revealing of images through patterns and layers, weaving together images to create a camouflaged, non-linear narrative.
