Phipps Exhibit Gallery

Ernest Lee, an award-winning artist from Raleigh, NC, who lived in North Central Florida for 20 years before his death in 2021, used his application of vigorous and colorful impasto brush work to fill his canvases with rich stories from across Florida’s history. Often called “Florida’s Van Gogh,” his love for painting and those he met along the way lives on in his works today. The Tallahassee Museum is excited to present a large body of his artwork from all phases of his career. This show will be open to the public from February 8th through July 9th, 2024.
