Free and Open to the Public

Join HCP before the opening reception on Friday May 7 for an exhibition tour and conversation with the 2010 Fellowship juror, Brian Paul Clamp, and the 2010 Fellowship recipients Scott Dalton and Matt Eich.

Scott Dalton‘s work explores the people and places that inspired Gabriel García Márquez´s 1967 book One Hundred Years of Solitude, Dalton has created a body of work that represents the essence of Macondo, the fictional town in which the book is set.

Carry Me Ohio is Matt Eich´s exploration of the lives of residents in Southeastern Ohio. In an area left depressed and impoverished by the boom and subsequent bust of the industries of coal, salt, clay, and timber, the people live with a poverty rate of 27.4% and some $14,000 under the national average income.

Brian Paul Clamp is the owner and director of ClampArt, a gallery in Chelsea in New York City specializing in modern and contemporary art with an emphasis on photography. ClampArt mounts ten to fifteen exhibitions per year featuring the work of emerging and mid-career artists. Mr. Clamp opened the gallery in 2000 after completing a Master of Arts degree in Critical Studies in Modern Art at Columbia University. For eight years prior to that Mr. Clamp served as the director of a gallery on Manhattan’s Upper East Side specializing in late 19th- and early 20th-century American paintings. Aside from exhibitions at his own gallery space, Clamp has curated numerous photography shows at various venues throughout the United States, and has reviewed photographers’ portfolios on dozens of panels over the past several years. Mr. Clamp is the author of numerous publications on American art to date, and also occasionally contributes written work to various art periodicals.
