Visual Arts Exhibition: Reflections on Beauty

Matthew Lee

April 10- May 9, 2018

Artist Reception: Friday, April 20 from 5:30-7:30pm
Free and open to the public.

Matthew Lee is a painter who primarily enjoys working directly from life, whether it is creating a “plein air” landscape in the the hills of Provence, or a charcoal portrait sketch of a friend in Memphis, TN where he currently lives.   His paintings are often about creating an immediate connection with nature, capturing the essence of the light, forms, and feeling of a place or subject. Paintings are usually created on site in one to three sessions, and then larger studio paintings may be developed from these.  Matthew was born in Paris, France.  He spent his childhood mostly in France where his parents served as missionaries, with furloughs in Mississippi.  The rich culture and artistic heritage of France were deeply imprinted on his life.  He attended a boarding school for High School in Germany, and earned a degree in architecture from Mississippi State University.  He practiced architecture full time for 22 years prior to launching an art business.  For more information visit matthewleestudio.com 

Join us for the artist reception for Reflections on Beauty from 5:30-7:30pm in the GPAC lobby before the Moscow Festival Ballet performance.
