Kolman & Pryor Gallery Announces a Grant Initiative for Minnesota Artists
In celebration of its 10th Anniversary on November 5, 2020, Kolman & Pryor Gallery is pleased to announce a new and innovative initiative, called, the Project Space, that will award $10,000 grants to Minnesota artists beginning in 2021. This new initiative will support Minnesota visual artists by providing them with the funds, technical support, and exhibition space they need to create important projects that will significantly impact and advance their careers.
The 2021 grantees are Betsy Ruth Byers, James Holmberg, Kelly Jean Ohl, Jodi Reeb, and Julie Snidle. The awards are based on proposals submitted to the gallery. Artists must complete their project within a 12-month grant period culminating in a capstone exhibition or major public presentation about the work they have created and produced as a result of the grant.
The transition to the Project Space initiative is driven, in part, by a desire to shift the gallery’s focus while continuing to support Minnesota artists. The Project Space will give Kolman & Pryor Gallery a new way to be of service to the community of Minnesota artists. At the same time, the Gallery will be able to offer its visitors a new gallery-going experience while branding itself as more than just a commercial gallery.
Any Minnesota artist at any stage in their career can apply for a grant. More information about the Project Space will be available soon on this website. In the meantime, artists interested in finding out more about the grant program should contact Kolman & Pryor Gallery Co-owners, Anita Sue Kolman or Patrick Pryor at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, respectively.
