Review in Palm Beach Daily News

Today, I want to share with you a review of my current solo exhibition, Water Has A Memory, at Gavlak Gallery in Palm Beach. Written by Jan Sjostrom, the review first published in Palm Beach Daily News three days ago.

At Gavlak, there is also Phillip Estlund’s solo exhibition and sometimes pairing with another artist’s work could be tricky. But I really love how our works inform each other.

Gallery Shots of Bovey Lee: Water Has A Memory at Gavlak Gallery, Palm Beach, Florida, USA

Coming back to open my solo, Bovey Lee: Water Has A Memory, in Palm Beach not long ago. The opening was very well attended. I love how subtle and elegant the color scheme we use for the show. Thanks to Sarah Gavlak who is director and owner of Gavlak. When I first exhibited cut paper, I chose a tone on tone presentation and it gave a very quiet and airy feel to a show. This current solo recreates that same impression. Below are several gallery shots that I want to share with you:

Bovey Lee: Water Has a Memory, Solo Exhibition, Gavlak Gallery, Palm Beach, Florida, USA

It’s only a week away from the opening of my first solo exhibition with Gavlak Gallery that represents my work in Palm Beach, Florida. The water motif is in majority of the cut paper pieces in the show. That’s why it is titled Water Has a Memory.

Bovey Lee: Water Has a Memory opens on Easter Friday, March 29 and the exhibition is thru May 11. I will be showing both recent and new works, including “Falling Water I–V (after Pat Steir)” that are in the image below. New works include “Palm Tree Snowflakes,” “Painting Coral,” “Sawing Waves,” and “Trimming Feathers.” Visit boveylee.com to see these and more images.

My work in The Armory Show and Scope, New York

I came back from New York last week to attend the Armory Show and Scope. I had works in both art fairs. In The Armory Show, Gavlak Gallery that represents me in Palm Beach, Florida chose “Rolling Roses.” At Scope, Grotto Fine Art showed “Wingtip Voyage,” “Dragging Cows Up a Tree,” and “Wash, Cut, Dry.”

Several blogs selected my works as one of their best picks:
