Kolman & Reeb Gallery is celebrating in honor of its new partner, Jodi Reeb.
In the spring of 2022, Kolman & Reeb Gallery partnered with highly successful Minneapolis-based artist, Jodi Reeb. This spring, Kolman & Reeb Gallery aims to celebrate Reeb and her accomplishments with its next show, A Fresh Start Celebration. This lively exhibition will celebrate its continued admiration and support of Minnesota artists by showcasing its community of gallery artists’ latest contemporary works.
For nearly 30 years, Reeb has worked as a teacher, mentor, and advocate for other Minnesota artists. Her passion is to help artists reach their audience and achieve their professional landmarks. In her new role as gallery partner, Reeb has already helped broaden the reach and enhance the relationships between gallery artists and the patrons of the Minneapolis art community. “My first year as a partner dissolved in a flurry of activity,” Reeb says with a broad smile. “Now it’s time to celebrate and have some fun.”
When she was an up-and-coming artist, Reeb saw the chance to display her art in a gallery as a foundational step to success. In her new role as partner and curator, Reeb views the opportunity to partner with Kolman & Reeb Gallery owner, Anita Sue Kolman as a tremendous milestone in her career.
“Jodi brings the perspective of a working artist coupled with enthusiasm, energy, and a strong commitment towards building visibility for the gallery among the local arts community,” says Anita Sue Kolman, co-founder and co-partner of Kolman & Reeb Gallery. “Jodi has been strongly connected to the gallery for ten years as a represented artist and as the gallery’s sales associate. She is very knowledgeable about the gallery’s artists and inner workings. As a result, she was able to step into her new role on day one.”
By working together, Kolman and Reeb have the combined power to help further establish Kolman & Reeb Gallery as a foundational part of the Minneapolis art community through broader and more impactful exhibitions. A Fresh Start Celebration will demonstrate and celebrate this effort by including works by gallery artists, Cameron Zebrun, Betsy Ruth Byers, Jil Evans, Abby Mouw, Kelly Jean Ohl, Julie Snidle, and guest artist, Annie Irene Hejny.
An artist reception will kick off the celebration of A Fresh Start Celebration exhibition on Saturday, March 18, 2023, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., during the Northrup King Building’s March Northrup King Nights.
