Susie Lee, an important Seattle-based artist whose work takes the form of small sculptures to an international digital forum, is the winner of the 26th annual Bonnie Bronson Fellowship Award.
Since its inception in 1992, the Bronson Fund—named after the late American painter and sculptor Bonnie Bronson—has annually awarded a no-strings-attached cash prize, (this year’s prize is $10,000) to an artist of outstanding merit who lives and works in the Pacific Northwest. In addition, the Bronson Fund purchases artwork by each new Fellow, adding it to the Bronson Collection. The collection is on long-term loan to Reed College, where it is exhibited throughout the campus and curated by the Director of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, Stephanie Snyder.
Susie Lee, also winner of the Northwest Contemporary Art Award and The Stranger Genius Award in Art, creates sculptural objects, live performances, installations, video portraits, and social orchestrations. Her work is realized at different scales. But all of it explores vulnerability, amplifying humanity through technology, and invites intimate immersion.
The remarks and award ceremony are free and open to the public.
