Roland Lee Awarded Governor's Mansion Artist Medal

     St. George artist Roland Lee presented an art show, and received the Governor's Mansion Artist Award medal from Utah Governor Gary Herbert August 20 in a ceremony in Salt Lake City. The award is given annually to both a visual artist and a performing artist who have made significant contributions to the arts in Utah. Former Mormon Tabernacle Choir Director Craig Jessop received the award for the performing arts.
     Both Governor Gary Herbert and First Lady Jeanette Herbert made the presentations before about 150 guests at a special dinner and reception held at the stately Kearns Mansion, which was donated to the state by the Kearns family.
     A special exhibit of Utah landscape paintings by Roland Lee was displayed on the grounds and in the mansion during the event.

It wasn't exactly love at first sight with watercolor. Our first interactions were pretty awkward but I was fascinated & challenged! I admit that I was a bit controlling in the beginning. As our relationship grows, though, I've learned to step back & just appreciate the amazing qualities of watercolor. I've also learned a lot about life from watercolor - patience, gratitude, humility & joy in just being together. My passion for watercolor just continues to grow!

I love watercolor. Still, for me the key is drawing skill. As one develops drawing skill they can apply it to any medium they may choose to work in. It is the understanding and insight that comes through drawing that helps me to work both in an abstract and representational manner. John Salminen says, "value does the work and color gets the credit." I find myself saying, drawing does the work and watercolor gets the credit.
