An Evening with Michael Lee

August 2, 2019

For nearly 40 years, Lee Gallery in Winchester, Massachusetts, has maintained an inventory of photography that spans the history of the medium.  The Art Museum of West Virginia University will host Owner and Director Michael Lee Wednesday, September 4 for a reception and conversation about collecting photography. 

Lee Gallery emphasizes a number of specific concentrations including nineteenth-century American, British, and French photographs, particularly those made during photography’s first three decades, as well as photographs of the American Civil War and the exploration of the American West. A second focus is the work of photographers of The Photo-Secession and the circle of Alfred Stieglitz. Additionally, Lee Gallery maintains an inventory of work by 20th-century American masters of photography, as well as work by experimental post-war artists who incorporate photography into their broader art-making practices.

Lee Gallery joined The Association of International Photography Art Dealers in 1984, served on AIPAD’s board of directors for ten years and exhibits annually at AIPAD’s photography fair at The Park Avenue Armory in New York City.

Lee will join Todd J. Tubutis, director of the Art Museum of WVU, in a discussion about different kinds of photographic processes, what makes them important to curators and collectors alike, and how photography can serve the mission of an academic art museum. Lee will have a selection of vintage photographs from his gallery on view for the event.
