Fort Worth interior designer Lee Archer Small describes herself as a “Matchmaker of client to art” and that perfectly characterizes the work she does through her online fine art gallery. She firmly believes that the right piece of art, matched not only to the space in which it will be displayed but also to the client’s aesthetic, can bring about amazing shifts that inspire changes in the spirit of an environment, spark a different outlook — maybe even alter a life’s direction.
Her gallery clearly reflects the love and passion that she holds for the beauty of the American West. Most of the art that she represents can be described as Contemporary Texas Regionalism, which she considers a fresh, clean, updated take on classic imagery of the region. Lee represents mostly artists from Texas, but also selected New Mexico artists as well as a bit of estate art and the photography of Fort Worth resident Renn Lawrence. Small and Lawrence often take meandering driving tours out West in search of artists, art, galleries and photography opportunities.
