Panel Discussion: “Color: What Is It Good For?”

Wednesday, February 18, 2015
7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The Kolman & Pryor Gallery is pleased to introduce, Indeterminate Present, a new exhibit of abstract paintings and works on paper by gallery artist, Betsy Ruth Byers. In the new works, Byers is focusing on two primary concerns. One involves her signature use of color to create emotional and sensory qualities in the paintings. The other is her ongoing exploration of the sweep, heft and mutability of the horizon line.

Indeterminate Present runs January 10, 2015 through February 21, 2015.

Patrick in the Community

Patrick Kemal Pryor, co-owner of Kolman & Pryor Gallery, is currently showing a new series of work, entitled, “Tablets,” at the Bloomington Theater and Arts Center as part of the Center’s exhibition, Interactions. Patrick describes his paintings as “an act of constructing something and then tearing it down. I want this work to evoke the idea of uncovering what has been buried or lost.” Patrick will be talking about “Tablets” at the Bloomington Theater and Arts Center on Tuesday, February 3 at 7:00 p.m. The Center is located at 1800 West Old Shakopee Road in Bloomington, Minnesota. “Tablets” will be on view through February 20, 2015.
