This morning, I was surprised by a phone call from a gentleman who introduced himself as Charles C. Bergman. He went on to state that he was the CEO and Chairman of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation in Manhattan, and that he was calling to let me know that the Foundation and their Board had reviewed and approved my grant proposal which was submitted last summer. I was shocked and amazed, and left pretty much speechless.
It is an amazing honor to have been awarded this grant, and I would like to specially thank my friends who supported me through their advice and letters of recommendation: artists Terry Elkins and Judith Nilson, who are both past PKF Grant recipients, and Helen Harrison, curator, writer, and Director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in Springs, NY. Somehow, I feel that both Jackson and Lee are smiling down on me today!
I am very honored to have several of my works added to the Pollock-Krasner Foundation online image archive of grant recipients. You can view the images the Foundation selected here.
