MAKING HISTORY WITH ART
The past is a world that becomes more and more foreign as it moves rapidly from the shores of modern experience. History art provides a sort of telescope that lets us see into that distance. Lee Teter’s pictures provide a seamless and appropriate window to a past that would remain invisible without art.
Due to the scarcity of artists in early America, and the absence of photography before 1840, visual aspects of cultures that existed on this continent have often been forgotten or distorted. Using careful research Lee Teter uses art to transcend time and fill the gaps left in America’s visual history.
