    The closing reception is on First Friday, January 6, 2023 

    from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.


    Aaryn Lee is an interdisciplinary artist working in drawing/mark making, mixed-media, printmaking, installation, projection, time-based media, and performance. Her work tends to be organic in structure, repetitive in nature, somber in mood, and touched with the muted overcast tones from her hometown of Portland, Oregon. Themes investigated in the work relate to memory, ritual, body dysmorphia, and the female body. 

    Aaryn was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, raised in the Pacific Northwest, and is currently living and working in Huntsville, Alabama. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Art: Art History with a Studio Concentration in Printmaking, Cum Laude, in 2012 from Portland State University and a Master of Fine Arts in Visual Art in 2022 from Lesley Art + Design, where she was a recipient of the Stauch-Mosse Merit Scholarship. 


    Aaryn has a public art studio at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment, the largest privately owned arts facility in the south. In addition to her studio practice, Aaryn is an art educator. She is currently an adjunct professor at The University of Alabama in Huntsville where she teaches drawing foundations.
