Lee was known for his work depicting moments in time from his childhood, featuring landscapes and everyday scenes that harken back to memories from another era. He was sometimes referred to as the van Gogh of Florida, due to the use of bold colors and heavy impasto techniques.

The exhibit will be on display May 16 – June 17 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday -Friday. Admission to the SF Gallery is free and open to the public.
