The 3rd Annual Artspace111 Regional Juried Exhibition, juried by the distinguished Director of the Kimbell Art Museum, Eric M. Lee.

Eric M. Lee has served as the fourth director of the Kimbell Art Museum since March 2009.  During this time, the Museum underwent design development and construction of a new pavilion designed by Renzo Piano, which opened in late 2013 and complements Louis Kahn’s original landmark structure of 1972.  Acquisition highlights of Lee’s tenure include Michelangelo’s Torment of Saint Anthony, which is the only painting by the artist in the Americas; Poussin’s Ordination, from the artist’s famed series of Seven Sacraments; and Ruisdael’s Edge of a Forest by a Grainfield, which is now one of the most important Dutch landscapes in America.  Exhibitions hosted by the Kimbell during Lee’s directorship include Caravaggio and His Followers in Rome (2011–12), Bernini: Sculpting in Clay (2013), Fiery Pool: The Maya and the Mythic Sea (2010), The Age of Picasso and Matisse: Modern Masters from the Art Institute of Chicago (2013-14), Faces of Impressionism: Portraits from the Musee d’Orsay (2014-15), Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter’s Eye, among others.
