The Artist’s Reception on Thursday January 31st, from 5-7pm will welcome Lee and her exhibit at the Pascagoula River Audubon Center and is open to the ellin ellispublic. This reception offers a first look at the pieces and an opportunity to meet Lee and learn about her artistic process and inspiration to reuse materials. The Pascagoula River Audubon Center is pleased to showcase this Lee who merges nature, fashion, and African art in honor of Black History Month. The exhibit will be on display from January 31st through March 23rd.

Working with Lee while she developed the exhibit and created each sculpture, it is easy to see her energy and excitement for using recycled items from nature. Lee calls them “nature’s goodies” and describes that her style is largely influenced by nature, fashion, costumes, music, African art and tribal dress. Driftwood, insect nests, textiles, paper, clay, and other items embellish her sculptures to carry the exhibit’s theme that explores the movement of pollen between plants and animals.
