Amanda Lee Artist Talk
Join us for the Kent Blossom Art Lecture Series from May 30 - June 6, 2018. Visiting artists who are a part of the Kent Blossom Art Intensives will be giving presentations on their work. Free and open to the public.
On Wednesday, June 6, Amanda Lee, visiting artist in printmaking, will be giving a talk on her work at 6:00 p.m. in room 165 at the Center for the Visual Arts (325 Terrace Drive).
Amanda Lee is a multi-media artist, a poetic printmaking activist, who is fascinated with the possibilities that exist in the space that fills a pause, the thing in between, be it emotional or physical, the space that many of us overlook on our way there from here.
Originally from Seattle, Washington, Lee received an MFA in printmaking from Indiana University in Bloomington and was the recipient of the inaugural Virginia A. Myers, Visiting Artist / Visiting Assistant Professorship in Printmaking at University of Iowa. Having spent a decade in art education at Penland School of Crafts and Pilchuck Glass School, it is no surprise that Lee is a dedicated teacher. Currently teaching for University of Arkansas, Fayetteville Lee has spent three years working mainly from a studio in Cortona, Italy while adjunct faculty for University of Georgia's Cortona Study Abroad Program. Lee was also a 2015 artist in residence for McColl Center for Art + Innovation and University of North Carolina, Charlotte.
