We are overjoyed to have renowned artist Catherine Lee as the Guest Awards Judge for this competition. Ms. Lee has exhibited extensively, abroad and in the United States, having had one-person exhibitions in galleries in New York City, London, Paris, Milan, Salzburg, Barcelona, Zürich, Copenhagen, San Francisco, Cologne, Tokyo, Osaka, etc. After 32 years working in New York and London, Lee returned to her native state and built a studio in the Texas Hill Country, where her work continues without the distraction of urban life. Her abstract paintings and sculptures balance the flat landscape of Texas with the verticality of New York.
