Annie Lee: A Texas Farewell
Laura Moore Fine Art Studios
February 11 through March 7, 2012
Laura Moore Fine Art Studios is excited to announce the 3rd exhibition with world-renowned artist Annie Lee. Lee will be in attendance on opening night, Saturday, February 11, 2012, from 7-10 p.m., with the exhibition Annie Lee: A Texas Farewell featuring over 18 of her new acrylic paintings. The art in the exhibition focuses on everyday details from years gone by and solitary figures on the walk of life.
Lee’s often humorous, satirical style of painting has been termed Black Americana. She names Will Smith, Bill Cosby and Eddie Murphy as just a few of her notable collectors. Lee has been painting for over 60 years and with her first show in Chicago that sold out in 2 hours to single paintings selling for as much as $20,000, Lee is a true treasure in today’s art world. Lee has been living and painting in Texas for the last 6 years and now intends to return to Las Vegas where she once owned a 10,000 square foot art gallery.
“Mentor, art world navigator, savvy entrepreneur, advisor, humorist, neighbor and friend are just a few words that come to mind when I think of Annie,” Moore says. Moore states she has certainly enjoyed Lee’s time in North Texas and feels honored to know and to have painted alongside Lee.
The exhibition Annie Lee: A Texas Farewell is but a small outpouring of our well wishes towards Lee and her new endeavors. Come out on opening night and help give Lee a Texas sized sendoff. Annie Lee: A Texas Farewell opens on Saturday, February 11, 2012, from 7-10 p.m. at Laura Moore Fine Art Studios, 107 S Tennessee in historic downtown McKinney. The exhibition will be on display through March 7.
Gallery Hours are Monday through Saturday 1-5 p.m., 2nd Saturday 1-10 p.m., or by appointment. Free admission. 214.914.3630. www.lauramooreart.com
