Deadline EXTENDED TO APRIL 27th: “Consumption” to be juried by Brian Paul Clamp

Brian Paul Clamp is a NYC-based gallerist who tirelessly offers his services as a Juror to many non-profit organizations. You DO want Brian to know your work!  Here is one way to introduce it to him.  From the C4FAP website:

CONSUMPTION    Deadline: April 13- EXTENDED TO APRIL 27th!

“Theme: Consumption is a complex word. While it can signify the influence of advertising and marketing on our pervasive consumer culture, the word also speaks to profound human instincts. To be consumed by something-be it illness, emotions, or beliefs-is to oftentimes confront one’s realities. What, why, when, and how we consume determines the ramifications of the choices we make. Additionally, consumption can simply suggest a transformation. The Center is looking for images that visually depict Consumption and what it means to you.

Juror: Brian Paul Clamp is Director of ClampArt, a contemporary art gallery in Chelsea in New York City, established in 2000. Brian has nearly two decades of experience in the field. He holds a Masters of Art in Critical Studies in Modern Art from Columbia University, and is the author of thirty publications on American Art to date.
