NEW YORK, NY.- Seven prominent art world personalities have been chosen as judges to select the first two grants winners for the Clark Hulings Fund for Burgeoning Visual Artists, it was announced by Elizabeth Hulings, daughter its namesake, Clark Hulings. They include Meredith Bergmann, Peter Falk, Thomas R. Kellaway, Philip Koch, Dan Ostermiller, Jennie Ottinger, and Bart Walter.

“I am honored to have this distinguished group of art professionals on the Fund’s inaugural judging panel,” says Ms. Hulings. “Because they are from different parts of the country, work in a variety of media to produce different kinds of art, and themselves are at different stages of their careers, I think each of them brings a unique perspective to the judging process.”

From September 1 through 30, 2013, The Fund, which was established to aid emerging artists from all genres, will accept applications from working painters and sculptors to pursue the same course of success that Clark Hulings enjoyed. According to Ms. Hulings, the grant winners, who will each receive up to $5,000, will be announced in November 2013. To apply visit:

More recently, he has been a member of the Governor’s Council on the Arts for the State of Kansas, and Chairman of the Arts Commission for the city of Leawood, Kansas.

Koch has had his work spotlighted in 14 solo exhibitions in American art museums including the Butler Institute of American Art, the Saginaw Art Museum, and the Swope Art Museum.
