Sally Lee, The Umbrella 2021-2022 Artist-in-Residence, is a Boston-based installation artist from Arkansas. Lee works in many mediums such as ceramics, painting, sculpture, textiles, and many more. Her art practice has served has a mechanism to navigate her place in the world as a first-generation immigrant. These experiences inform Sally on how to create conceptual work through historical, political and cultural contexts. Like her cultural identity, Lee’s combined aesthetic between Eastern and Western styles and philosophies are a part of her artistic fingerprint.
Sally is currently an adjunct professor at Northeastern University, teaches at the New Art Center, a Ceramic Studio Assistant at SMFA, and Program Director of Nearby Gallery.
