Paige West of West Collection asks: “How many art fairs, galleries, and studios must one visit to get a complete picture of the contemporary art scene?” We have to agree–sometimes, it’s just downright tedious staying in the loop with the year’s trendiest exhibitions. So, what’s an art hound like yourself to do? Vote! West Collection has managed to create an expansive sprawl of artists in their contest West Collects. In something that sounds like a soundbite from a 3 A.M. infomercial, West Collection crows that contest participants need only be 18 or older, and have a working painting/sculpture/photography portfolio.
But let’s get to the important stuff. Jaq Belcher–one of our represented artists–is featured in the contest. With a prize that comes in at a cool $300,000 there’s a lot at stake. Plus, we kinda want to show our competitive side…so in the words of P. Diddy–Vote or Die. Go here to vote for Jaq, or vote on your Iphone/Ipad via the West Collects app. And don’t forget to peruse past winners here.
