Recently, Henry was awarded the 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art.

Her works have been exhibited nationally and internationally and are held in private and public collections across the country, including the Hunter Museum of American Art, the Tennessee State Museum, Cheekwood Museum and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Museum. She is Professor of Art in the Department of Arts and Languages at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee.

Since 1985, CECA at Austin Peay State University has provided students, the Clarksville community and the Middle Tennessee region with engaging experiences in visual art and design, music, creative writing, theatre and dance.

The CECA Tennessee Artist Fellowship was created to celebrate contemporary art, and to support the continued creative work of exceptional Tennessee artists. Unlike other fellowships, applications and nominations from artists were not solicited. A committee of APSU faculty compiled a list of outstanding artists from across the state and selected the fellowship winner. Through the generous support of the Center of Excellence in the Creative Arts (CECA), the selected artist receives $5,000 to aid in the creation of new artwork.
