Farida Hughes, a Kolman & Pryor Gallery artist, has long been taken with the phrase “All the world’s a stage…” which opens the famous monologue in Shakespeare’s play, As You Like It. In Actors & Spectators, Hughes’ first solo show at Kolman & Pryor, she explores “how we participate in our world via movement” as both players and viewers. “In acting,” says Hughes, “we engage in rehearsing, repeating the same routine in a specific space, and as audience we find ourselves both inside and apart from the action.” Actors & Spectators includes both paintings and installations. It begins at Kolman & Pryor on Saturday, September 13, 2014 and runs through Saturday, October 25, 2014, with a free public reception on Saturday, September 27, 2014, 7-10 p.m. During the evening of September 27, Kolman & Pryor Gallery and North Loop galleries, Veronique Wantz Gallery, Traffic Zone Gallery and Form + Content Gallery, will also be celebrating Form + Contents’s seventh anniversary with coordinated openings and receptions.
Dates: Sept. 13th – October 25th
Free Public Reception: Sat., Sept. 27th from 7-10pm

Photographs by New York-based photographer H. Lee (a pseudonym) H. Lee spent a year documenting the growing season and culture of cannabis in Humboldt County, California, capturing intimate moments as she lived among the growers. H. Lee’s colorful images reveal a hidden world and a community based on an illegal agriculture. Grassland is a window into a counterculture that has flourished and evolved in the forested hills of Northern Californian. By growing high quality marijuana for many years many of these farmers wrote the book on the production. The Icebox exhibit features 30 color images that are limited in edition, each signed, and available for sale.
The exhibit at Icebox Gallery by H. Lee opens at same time as the release of the beautifully designed book Grassland. H. Lee will be in the gallery and available for book signing Saturday, November 8, 8:30PM – 9:30PM. Other signed books will be available during the run of the exhibit.
