Lee Kelly interview 1983

Lee Kelly just turned 85. Through June into mid-July he is showing new work at Elizabeth Leach Gallery. Over a career of almost 60 years Kelly has completed dozens of public and private sculpture commissions. He has major works on the Portland Transit Mall and the Rose Garden in Washington Park. He lives and works on what was a dairy farm in Oregon City. The barn is now a shop/studio. What was pasture land 50 years ago is now reforested and populated with Kelly’s sculpture.

A recent interview is published at Oregon ArtsWatch (www.orartswatch.org).

Here’s one from 1983:
