April 7, 2015
Bruce Silverstein is pleased to announce that Brea Souders has been awarded a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. Souders is one of the first photographers to be awarded a grant. Now entering its thirtieth year of grant making, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Inc. has reaffirmed its mission of supporting individual visual artists worldwide. The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, grants support the artists' personal and/or professional expenses for one year. Since its inception in 1985, the Foundation has awarded over 61 million dollars to artists in 76 countries. Pollock-Krasner grants have enabled artists to create new work, purchase needed materials and pay for studio rent, as well as their personal and medical expenses. Past recipients of Pollock-Krasner grants acknowledge their critical impact in allowing concentrated time for studio work, and in preparing for exhibitions and other professional opportunities such as accepting a residency. The Pollock-Krasner Foundation was established in 1985 to assist individual working artists of merit with financial need through the generosity of Lee Krasner (1908-1984), a leading abstract expressionist painter and widow of Jackson Pollock.
