The New York–based Pollock-Krasner Foundation has announced the winners of 111 grants to artists and 13 to nonprofit organizations, with $3.17 million distributed over the past year. The foundation also named artists Squeak Carnwath and Blane De St. Croix winners of the Lee Krasner Award, in recognition of a lifetime of artistic achievement.

The foundation’s average grants to artists range from $25,000 to $30,000, with funds conferred to support new work, exhibition preparation and production, fellowships, residency programs, and other expenses. The latest grantees—including Mel Chin, Chris Drury, Luciana Lamothe, and others named in full below—hail from 17 countries.

The nonprofit awardees include Charlotte Street Foundation in Kansas City, Missouri; Storm King Art Center in upstate New York; and others. The New York–based International Foundation for Art Research received two grants for operating expenses and an initiative to mark its 50th anniversary.

Earlier this year, artist Todd Williamson won the Pollock-Krasner Foundation’s Pollock Prize for Creativity, which awarded $50,000 for his solo exhibition at the 2019 Venice Biennale.

The Pollock-Krasner Foundation was established in 1985 by Abstract Expressionist painter Lee Krasner, who named it in part in tribute to her late husband, Jackson Pollock.

Ronald D. Spencer, the foundation’s chairman and CEO, said in a statement, “At the core of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation’s mission is fostering the work and development of artists, and our 2018–19 grant and award recipients highlight the impact we can have due to Lee Krasner’s legacy. In addition, through our support of institutions such as the Barbican Centre and their upcoming Lee Krasner retrospective and catalogue, and the Katonah Museum of Art’s exhibition of the work of Krasner and other women artists who participated in the groundbreaking 9th Street Show, we are continuing to advance much-needed scholarship.”
