Current Exhibition

Actors & Spectators

Show Extended Through November 1!

Farida Hughes, a Kolman & Pryor Gallery artist, has long been taken with the phrase “All the world’s a stage…” which opens the famous monologue in Shakespeare’s play, As You Like It. In Actors & Spectators, Hughes’ first solo show at Kolman & Pryor, she explores “how we participate in our world via movement” as both players and viewers. "In acting,” says Hughes, “we engage in rehearsing, repeating the same routine in a specific space, and as audience we find ourselves both inside and apart from the action.” Actors & Spectators includes both paintings and installations.

Upcoming Exhibition

Mutable Landscapes

New Work by Patrick Kemal Pryor

November 6 - November 29, 2014

Reception:
Saturday, November 8, 2014
7:00 p.m. to 10:00 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, 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. The multiplicity of interpretations allows me to explore and express philosophical questions of relativism and absolutism.”
