Lee Hall (Lexington, NC 1934 - South Hadley, MA 2017)
Lee Hall was born in Lexington, North Carolina, and enrolled in the Woman's College of the University of North Carolina (now UNC Greensboro) to study art, art history, literature and philosophy. In graduate school at New York University, she established relationships with noted Abstract Expressionists, all of whom exhibited at the esteemed Betty Parsons Gallery. Hall eventually landed two solo shows at Betty Parsons Gallery in 1975 and 1977. Her paintings allow us to share her love for subtle shapes, variety in texturing, and muted color relationships. Her works are poetic landscapes, many deriving from the tradition of abstraction produced by meditations on nature.
The recipient of prestigious awards, including the Childe Hassam Purchase award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1978, Hall’s work can be found in museum collections throughout the United States.
