Juror: Ashley Dillman is the Sales Director of Freight + Volume in New York City. Established in 2005 by Nick Lawrence, Freight + Volume is a gallery dedicated to showcasing the work of emerging and established artists, and in particular work which is innovative and not afraid to take risks. While Freight + Volume is especially interested in narrative and text-based material, ultimately their predominant criteria is the quality of the work itself, regardless of technique, content or style; with the motivation to show dynamic, visceral, and provocative new work in all media and dealing with a range of subject matter.
