Art exhibit, open to public, features prairie-grass abstractions

Lee Albert Hill ArtBluestem grass is increasingly popular in landscapes because it furthers sustainability by tolerating drought and various soil conditions. It also has artistic potential as shown in an exhibit now on view and open to the public in UNT Health Science Center’s Atrium Gallery.

Works by Lee-Albert Hill, who grew up in West Texas, are on exhibit through July, including pieces from his “Bluestem Series.”

Work in the series is produced in several steps. Hill selects bluestem specimens for their potential to create linear impressions in acrylic paint. Grass and paint are then spread out on canvas and exposed to the weather. After weathering, the piece is brought into Hill’s Fort Worth studio, where he tapes off forms and patterns, then paints over them.

After living and working  in the Connecticut/New York area for many years, Hill returned to Texas and lives in Fort Worth. In addition to his work as a painter, he is an architect and associate principal at Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford Architects.

His work has been featured twice at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art near San Francisco and shown in curated group exhibitions in New Orleans,Houston, Berlin and Moscow.

The Atrium Gallery is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment on the first floor of the Carl E. Everett Building, 3500 Camp Bowie Blvd., Fort Worth. More information is available from Curator Shea Patterson Young, shea.pattersonyoung@unthsc.edu
