In Memoriam: Lee Kelly (1932-2022)

Lee Kelly exemplified creative passion, clarity of vision, and dedication to process and practice. He was an extraordinary thinker, artist, poet, and adventurous spirit who enjoyed gathering with others at his home, studio, and sculpture garden. Lee had an abiding love of poetry and kept notebooks full of sketches and poems that he would read aloud at special moments. His brilliance, generosity, humor, and artwork will long be treasured.
