Kolman & Pryor Gallery is thrilled to present a performance art, painting, and technology installation by its first Project Space grant recipient, James Holmberg. The Project Space initiative provides Minnesota visual artists with the funds, time, and exhibition space to create a project that significantly advances their careers. Holmberg’s project, Absence, investigates loss, memory, and transformation through a painting process of  accumulation and erasure captured with video and experienced via an app, entitled, "Absence Show," which is available in the App Store or on Google Play.

The exhibition begins Saturday, September 11, 2021. An artist reception will be held on September 18, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.,  during Northrup King Nights, the Northrup King Building’s quarterly open studio evening. The exhibition closes October 30, 2021.

Call for Applications for Kolman & Pryor Gallery Project Space Grants for 2022

Kolman & Pryor Gallery is seeking applications for its Project Space Grant Program, a new initiative launched by gallery co-founders, Anita Sue Kolman and Patrick Pryor, to further support Minnesota visual artists. The program awards four grants per year of $10,000 each to four Minnesota visual artists who have met the submission requirements. The goal of the grant program is to provide artists with the funds, space, and support they need to create an important project that will significantly impact their artistic careers. At the end of their grant period, the artists will show their finished project to the public through an exhibition or other presentation at Kolman & Pryor Gallery. The grant period is 12 months. Grants are awarded once a year and announced in January of each year.

Applications for 2022 will be accepted from July 15, 2021 through September 15, 2021. Successful applicants will be notified on or about October 15, 2021.
