Glenville, WV – ‘Invironment,’ a work by multimedia sculptor and installation artist Jason Lee, is on display in the Glenville State College Art Gallery. The show opened August 27th and will run until October 11th. Lee incorporates a wide variety of materials and techniques into his oddly humorous constructions and presentations.
“My elaborate installations display photographic images of sections of a cascading pristine creek, or a compartmentalized landscape, frozen in time. These scenes are made dimensional, suspended and contained within industrial style lightboxes. The constructions are reminiscent of the futuristic interior design of the 1960s,” said Lee, a West Virginia University Assistant Professor of Sculpture and Foundation Coordinator in the Division of Art and Design.
“I am thrilled to have such a great representation of installation art at GSC. This exhibition is a superb learning experience for both the students and the community,” said GSC Professor of Art Liza Brenner.
There will be an opening reception for Lee’s ‘Invironment’ on Monday, September 10th from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. The show will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and one hour before all GSC Fine Arts events.
Lee received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kent State University and his Master of Fine Arts from University of Wisconsin Madison. Lee has exhibited his work at 16 Beaver Space in New York, Spaces Gallery in Cleveland, The Contemporary Arts Collective in Las Vegas, The Soap Factory in Minneapolis, Western Exhibitions in Chicago, The Wisconsin Triennial, and the Cleveland Museum of Art. He currently resides in Morgantown, West Virginia (Monongalia County).
