Jerald Melberg Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Lee Hall

Jerald Melberg Gallery in Charlotte, NC, is presenting Lee Hall: A Survey, featuring paintings and works on paper by Lexington, North Carolina, native Lee Hall, on view through Jan. 25, 2014.

Hall has pursued careers as artist, academic and writer. As an artist, her paintings allow us to share her love for subtle shapes, variety in texture and muted color relationships. Her works are poetic landscapes, derived from the tradition of abstraction.

The artist came to prominence in the 1940s and early 1950s. She exhibited side by side with Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and many of the other abstract expressionists. Early in her career Hall frequently exhibited at the Betty Parsons Gallery in New York City. Having become disillusioned with the gallery scene and the concept of selling works of art, she turned to academia and served as dean of Visual Arts at the State University of New York in Purchase before being appointed president of the Rhode Island School of Design in 1975 where she remained until 1983. Hall has continued to paint and has recently decided to exhibit her work again. Jerald Melberg Gallery represents the works of Lee Hall in cooperation with the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art.

A full color catalogue accompanies this exhibition.
