We are pleased to announce that Steven Alexander has been awarded a Pollock-Krasner Grant for 2015. This grant supports the artists' personal and/or professional expenses for one year. Since its inception in 1985, the Foundation has awarded over 61 million dollars to artists in 76 countries. Congratulations to Steven on this award, which comes just before the opening of his exhibtion here with us at Gremillion next Thursday, April 9th.
Pollock-Krasner grants have enabled artists to create new work, purchase needed materials and pay for studio rent, as well as their personal and medical expenses. Past recipients of Pollock-Krasner grants acknowledge their critical impact in allowing concentrated time for studio work, and in preparing for exhibitions and other professional opportunities such as accepting a residency.
The Pollock-Krasner Foundation was established in 1985 to assist individual working artists of merit with financial need through the generosity of Lee Krasner (1908-1984), a leading abstract expressionist painter and widow of Jackson Pollock.
