Assembled Characters Reception

TaVee McAllister Lee & Harry Clewans are featured in the exhibit “Assembled Characters.”

TaVee McAllister Lee was born in South Dakota and grew up mostly in Oklahoma after a
stint in Laos as a little girl. She attended Oklahoma State University as an architectural
engineering student and went on to study at the Kansas City Art Institute. With a BFA in
Painting and Printmaking from KCAI, she eventually moved to California’s San Francisco
Bay Area where she now maintains an East Bay studio in Martinez.

A founding member of two East Bay artists groups, CC14 (Contra Costa 14) and
Kunstanke (art thought), TaVee McAllister Lee was the coordinator or on the curatorial
team for many group exhibitions. Her work was shown in Gallery 621 in Benicia, CA from
2013 through 2014 where she also curated the work of Joseph Mele, Robert Ray and
Lillian Almeida in Unfinished Man in 2014. Currently she is Exhibitions Director for GearBox
Gallery in Oakland, CA.

Deborah Benioff Friedman’s installation in the Inner Room is “Record of the Journey”. Deborah Benioff Friedman was selected as the GearBox Gallery Award winner of our 2017 juried exhibition, Bluets. Her work will be featured in the Inner Room of the gallery March 22nd through April 21st, 2018.

Artist Statement:
I am an artist and veterinarian living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I work with a variety of materials, including repurposed paper, cardboard and wire and more recently with mulberry paper in a Korean felting process known as Joomchi, creating pieces that reflect my attachment to that which is worn, well-used or discarded.

Please join us and meet the Artists!
