Expose Art Magazine is an independent international publication. Our international circulation (in-print and digital) includes countries such as USA, China, Finland, Japan, Brazil, Australia, Mexico, France, and Italy – just to name a few. Our mission is to provide exposure for contemporary artists and engage in contemporary art dialogue with galleries and museums across the globe. Our curatorial team intentionally showcases emerging professional artists who are not yet represented by major galleries. Our editorial team and contributors provide critical reviews and interviews with mid-career artists. We seek to involve and collaborate with patrons of the arts, collectors, directors, curators, and gallerists in our efforts at enriching and revitalizing the ways contemporary art is created and shared. Expose Art Magazine is distributed at no cost to selected art galleries, both nationally and internationally

I am one of 5 artists with 5 artworks featured in this exhibit. Curated by Beth C. McLaughlin.

From Catalogue:

Jacqueline Rush Lee defies our expectations of what books can and should be with her fecund meditations on nature and permanence. With a deft hand, Lee explores the material possibilities, drawing parallels between the life cycles of books and those of humans through forms found in nature..”
