Nelson is a watercolorist and block printer from Ironwood, Michigan. Cedar will give a brief statement about her work at 5:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Cedar Nelson’s artistic journey finds its roots on her Ironwood farm, where she raises a small flock of Icelandic sheep. In that relaxed setting, she finds her creative expression deeply influenced by her connection to the natural beauty of the North Woods. She nurtured her artistic curiosity and honed her skills during her career as an art teacher in Illinois and then California. After an early retirement, she returned to the Midwest to continue her creative journey with a new sense of purpose. Since her return, Cedar integrated herself into the vibrant local art scene in Ironwood, Michigan, actively participating in events like the Emberlight Festival, First Fridays, and the Range Art Studio Tour, where her creations captivate fellow artists and art enthusiasts.

Nelson will be teach block printing workshops for children, teens, and adults during her residency at the Mercer Library. Visit the library events calendar for more information as it becomes available.
