Congratulations Kevin!

The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Inc. was established in 1985 for the sole purpose of providing financial assistance to individual visual artists of established ability through the generosity of the late Lee Krasner, one of the leading abstract expressionist painters and the widow of Jackson Pollock. The Foundation’s mission is to aid, internationally, those individuals who have worked as professional artists over a significant period of time.

Wixted, who earned bachelor of art and master of art degrees from Bloomsburg (PA) University, has also been granted a studio residency by the Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation (ESKFF) at Mana Contemporary, Jersey City, NJ. ESKFF, founded in 2009, is an alternative channel for connecting artists, curators, collectors, galleries, cultural institutions, and the public through exhibitions and programming based on private contemporary art collections.

Last year, Wixted was awarded an AU International Fellowship for Faculty Development.

Hanos‘ approach to painting is valued on difference; one work may be hyperreal – a historical rendition of painting tradition – while another may be an amalgamation of styles stretching from pre-Raphaelite to the editing techniques of Photoshop. Placed in direct dialogue with each other, neither is privileged and neither is employed ironically or in parody. Hanos‘ range of approaches is held to the same principles that Hanos values not only in painting, but also in his view of life and the images that fill it.” – Tanya Leighton Gallery. Van Hanos, Not The Way [Press Release]. (2014). http://www.tanyaleighton.com
