Icebox Gallery Presents: Grassland

Monday, September 22, 2014

Icebox Gallery Presents: Grassland photo

Photographs by New York-based photographer H. Lee (a pseudonym) H. Lee spent a year documenting the growing season and culture of cannabis in Humboldt County, California, capturing intimate moments as she lived among the growers. H. Lee’s colorful images reveal a hidden world and a community based on an illegal agriculture. Grassland is a window into a counterculture that has flourished and evolved in the forested hills of Northern Californian. By growing high quality marijuana for many years many of these farmers wrote the book on the production. The Icebox exhibit features 30 color images that are limited in edition, each signed, and available for sale.

The exhibit at Icebox Gallery by H. Lee opens at same time as the release of the beautifully designed book Grassland. H. Lee will be in the gallery and available for book signing Saturday, November 8, 8:30PM – 9:30PM. Other signed books will be available during the run of the exhibit.

Mutable Landscapes: New Work by Patrick Kemal Pryor

Wednesday, October 29, 2014 - Saturday, November 29, 2014

Mutable Landscapes: New Work by Patrick Kemal Pryor photo

Public Reception: Saturday, November 8, 2014, 7-10 p.m.

Patrick Kemal Pryor, a Kolman & Pryor Gallery artist and co-owner, has recently become fascinated with traditional landscape painting. In Mutable Landscapes, his new show of abstract work at Kolman & Pryor, running Thursday, November 6 through Saturday, November 29, Pryor takes a viewfinder approach to investigating movement and transformation in a new series of abstract landscapes.

“These landscapes have a mutable quality that allows them to be in constant movement and transformation, which are two primary tenets of my work as a painter,” Pryor explains. “Land could become sea, foreground could become rocks or a lake. Landscapes could be seascapes and show a distant horizon; be dust that’s swirling or settling; wind or rain or fog or clouds or snow.”

Public Artist Reception: Saturday, November 8th from 7:00 – 10:00 PM
Location: Kolman & Pryor Gallery (#395)

Intersections and Affirmations

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 - Sunday, January 04, 2015

Intersections and Affirmations photo

Kathy Wismar manifests her credo, “To be an artist is to live through your work,” via two modes of artistic expression, one three-dimensional and the other equally invitational. In her new show, Intersections and Affirmations, at Kolman & Pryor Gallery, December 6, 2014, through January 3, 2015, Wismar celebrates how “art is not static” with tactile ceramics and enticing abstract paintings that beckon viewers to experience—with their hands and eyes, hearts and minds—“a sense of possibility.”

A free, opening reception will take place on Saturday, December 6, 2014, 7-10 p.m. and the gallery will host a demonstration of hand built techniques in ceramics on Wednesday, December 10, 7-9 p.m.
