About the juror: Erin Cluley is the owner and director of Erin Cluley Gallery, a contemporary art gallery presenting a provocative program of emerging and mid-career artists from Dallas and the United States. Cluley opened the 2000 square foot space in September 2014, joining a creative movement in the West Dallas/ Trinity Groves development at the foot of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. For five years prior to opening her gallery, Cluley served as the Director of Exhibitions for Dallas Contemporary where she worked on the production of exhibitions by widely known, and often envelope-pushing, artists including Rob Pruitt, Juergen Teller, K8 Hardy, Erwin Wurm, Jennifer Rubell, Shepard Fairey, Inez & Vinoodh, Julian Schnabel, Richard Phillips and others. Cluley is a native of Wichita Falls, Texas where she received her BFA from Midwestern State University. She went on to receive her MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland.
