Park University’s Campanella Gallery to Feature Paintings and Quilts
Jan. 16, 2019 — An exhibit featuring paintings by Andrea K. Lee, Ph.D., and quilts by her grandmother Enid Lee will be on display in Park University’s Campanella Gallery beginning Tuesday, Jan. 22, through Thursday, Feb. 28. Admission to the Gallery, located within Norrington Center on the University’s Parkville Campus, is free.
Andrea Lee is an assistant professor of art at Park University and also serves as chair of the Department of Art and Design and director of the Campanella Gallery. Enid Lee is Andrea’s paternal grandmother who passed away in 2008.
While Andrea Lee is an expressive painter, she also loves textiles, quilts and fabrics, and encompasses them in her canvases. “Many of my mixed media works in this exhibit are homages to my grandmother and her love of quilts,” she said. “My paintings incorporate acrylic, fabric and other media, and are shown alongside a few of the numerous quilts that my grandmother created over 70 years.”
According to Andrea, Enid made her first quilt at the age of 10 and she continued to create quilts into her 80s, including making quilts for each of her nine grandchildren and some great-grandchildren.
The Campanella Gallery is open during Norrington Center’s regular hours: Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.; Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sunday, 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The building will be closed for the President’s Day holiday on Monday, Feb. 18.
