Masters Gallery presents an exhibition and sale of select works by Don Kottmann, a 2014 recipient of the prestigious Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Grant.
The Painters and Sculptors Grant Program was established in 1993 by the Joan Mitchell Foundation to acknowledge painters and sculptors creating work of exceptional quality through unrestricted career support.
Nominators from across the United States are invited to recommend artists, at any stage in their career, who are currently under-recognized for their creative achievements, and whose practice would significantly benefit from the grant. In an anonymous process, a jury panel then selects twenty-five awardees. Nominators and jurors include prominent visual artists, curators, and art educators who are dedicated to supporting artists.
