Congratulations are due to gallery artist Jesse Krimes. Jesse is one of the inaugural recipients of the Right of Return fellowship, which provides funding for artists who were formerly incarcerated. The fellowship program is funded by the Open Philanthropy Foundation and the Soze Agency. Jesse was also instrumental in the founding of the program and will serve as a board member and on-going advisor.
Jesse's solo exhibition, "Purgatory," was just featured at the Georgetown University Museum of Art. His next solo exhibition with the gallery, "Leviathan," will open in October.
