Jen Bekman Gallery’s 8th Hey Hot Shot! Showcase opens this Friday, January 11, and is on view through January 27.  Five contemporary photographers were selected by a panel of art professionals (Stephen Frailey, Raul Guteirrez, Darius Himes, Jenni Holder, Lesley A. Martin, Nion McEvoy, Paul Moakley, and Penelope Umbrico) as well as the team at Jen Bekman Gallery. One of the five winners – who include Heather Cleary, Daniel Handal, Susan Magnus, Muge, and Zach Nader – will be selected for a $10,000 honorarium, a solo exhibition, and gallery representation for two years. That’s what we call support for emerging artists!
