In the Welcome Gallery: Professional Artist Member Kathryn Lee

October 7 – November 2, 2014

Kathryn Lee

A graduate of the PAFA and the University of Pennsylvania, Kathryn Lee’s early professional career was in book and magazine illustration and mural painting. Much changed in mid-career when she moved to Florence, Italy for ten years with her husband and daughter. Such a rich and powerful experience obviously changed her. The collages that she creates now echo of the bas-reliefs that can be seen throughout Tuscany. In lifting shapes up off the picture plane and by folding, scoring, curling and using painted and plain papers she obtains an interplay of light and shadow that seems to float and move. In essence, she likes taking a classic form and rendering it anew with fresh materials, creating exciting, unique pieces the viewer is sure to enjoy. Don’t miss Kathryn’s exhibition in the Welcome Gallery from October 7-November 2, 2014.
