The juror for The Elements exhibition is It occurred to me that it might be informative to have her discuss her process as a juror. I was looking for information that could potentially help artists decide which pieces to submit. I was pleased that Scout was amenable to the idea and responded to these questions I asked her about her work as a juror and this exhibit in particular.

BWAC is excited to open the Spring season with the juried show The Elements. Don’t delay, entry deadline is March 13.
BWAC is pleased to have Curatorial Fellow Scout Hutchinson of the Whitney Museum of American Art as the juror for this exhibition.
The theme of this juried show is the five elements. Many cultures and traditions have wanted to simplify the workings of the universe to five components/building blocks. The different philosophies have their own unique lists but with much overlapping. This exhibit defines the five elements as wind, fire, earth, sky and air.
This is the BWAC challenge: visualize what this ancient tradition means in our modern world. What can you add to this age old dialogue?
What’s in it for you? First, second and third Best of Show winners will be featured on BWAC’s Artsy page. Every accepted entry will be on exhibit at the BWAC gallery space in Red Hook, Brooklyn from April 30th to June 5th, 2022 and on sale to gallery visitors.
