Tracie Lee Hawkins is the Gallery Curator of Scarborough Art Gallery. She joined the Clothesline Art Gallery in January 2014 and moved to the new gallery. Tracie’s main attention is the development of art exhibits, introducing a variety of artists to collectors and the general public. She is instrumental in marketing the gallery, scheduling and programming.
Tracie is a painter and fiber artist. She creates fine art inspired by nature and historical events using oil, watercolor, acrylic paints, and textiles. Tracie studied fashion design in New York City where she was born and raised. After sewing for more than 30 years, Tracie returned to her first passion of oil painting. She studied Old Masters style painting under Chris DiDomizio for three years.
Because she pursued her passion, Tracie was rewarded with the opportunity through the Stone Mountain Arts Incubator to open T Lee Art & Design, LLC an art gallery and studio, located in the Village of Stone Mountain, Georgia where she teaches art, displays, and sells her original works. She continues to develop her creativity by painting with several artists’ groups and organizations in the metropolitan Atlanta, area. She was featured in the International Review of African American Art, Hampton Virginia in 2010, and had a solo exhibit of her historic Obama collection at the National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African American Culture at Alabama State University in 2012.
Tracie has a Masters degree in organizational management and in her corporate career worked as materials manager, and professional trainer for 30 years. She is excited about being a fulltime artist and she continues to explore her path of creativity.
