“The Portrait Show” at Kolman & Pryor Gallery
In our selfie-obsessed 21st century world, what is the meaning of the portrait, self or otherwise? Portraiture has long been its own genre in art, addressed in endless variations and styles. Self-portraits are nothing new as Kolman & Pryor Gallery investigates in its new exhibition, “The Portrait Show.”
Curated by gallery artist and co-owner, Patrick K. Pryor, “The Portrait Show,” includes work by guest artists, Vesna Kittelson, Charles Thysell, Aaron Kagan Putt, Leslie Barlow, Julie Buffalohead, and Nicholas Legeros. The exhibition runs through Saturday, April 6 with an artist reception on Saturday, March 9, 7-9 pm.
To round out the exhibit, Pryor has included a three-foot bronze sculpture of two children by Nicholas Legeros. Legeros’s sculptures can be found throughout the Twin Cities in both public and private spaces. His recent large commissions include a statue of Goldy Gopher on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota, a sculpture of Sid Hartman for the Target Center, and a 17-foot-high statue of St. Joseph for St. Joseph’s Hospital.
The Kolman & Pryor Gallery is located in Studio 395, Northrup King Building, 1500 Jackson St. NE. Info: 612-385-4239, 612-280-7812, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, kolmanpryorgallery.com.
