The Pollock-Krasner foundation was established in 1985 for the sole purpose of providing financial assistance to individual artists of established ability through the generosity of the late Lee Krasner, one of the leading abstract impressionist painters and widow of Jackson Pollock. Our sincere congratulations to Hiroshi on being chosen to receive this prestigious award.

Gravity, an exhibition of large-format POP prints by represented artist Linda Connor is on view at the Florida Musem of Photographic Arts through the end of March. If you're in Florida or making the trip to Tampa for Spring Break, make sure to see this beautiful work before the show closes.

"[Linda] is known for her luminous and iconic photographs and fascination with culturally sacred sites and landscapes. Her artwork reveals the essence of her subjects, yielding a sense of timelessness while visually evoking the intangible. She uses a distinctive technique: a large-format view camera allowing her to achieve remarkable clarity and rich detail. "– FMoPA

On View in Los Angeles last January
Photographer's Showcase artist Bear Kirkpatrick was selected to participate in The Billboard Creative's 2016 LA Billboard Art Project. Our congratulations to Bear for participating in this creative takeover in Downtown LA.

Under Creative Director and Creator Mona Kuhn, The Billboard Creative transforms remnant, or unsold, billboards into public art sites throughout greater Los Angeles.  Their goal in this work is two-fold:  to provide opportunities for emerging artists to share their work with a broad audience and to make art as accessible to Angelenos as the numerous billboards that we view every day.
