Friends of the Mint present a lecture by American artist Lee Hall.
Lee Hall has pursued careers as artist, educator and writer. Her paintings allow us to share her love for subtle shapes, variety in texturing, and civilized muted color relationships. Her works are poetic landscapes, many deriving from the tradition of abstractions produced by meditations on nature, a tradition which encompasses the painters of the Sung Dynasty as well as modernist, John Marin and abstract expressionist, Helen Frankenthaler.
Throughout her academic career, Hall painted and exhibited her work, most notably at the Betty Parsons Gallery. The recipient of numerous prestigious awards, including the Childe Hassam Purchase award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1977, her work can be found in museum collections such as The Mint Museum, the Greenville Museum, the Hudson River Museum, the Montclair Art Museum and New York University, among others.
