Great Northern by Design will host watercolor and pastel artist Kathleen Nelson on May 27, 10 am to noon, to demonstrate her watercolor techniques.
Nelson has been a working artist and educator for more than 20 years. This is the 13th year she has come to Great Northern by Design to share her painting expertise. Nelson loves nature and is always inspired by the beauty and unexpected surprises of Door County. The woods and water continue to influence her art.
With her watercolor brush and mixed media materials, she works in a loose fashion, creating colorful still life, floral and abstract landscapes.
This summer Nelson will teach a class at Peninsula School of Art in Fish Creek. That Saturday, new paintings will be on display and for sale, along with her note cards. Refreshments will be on hand. Great Northern will continue to show Nelson’s art throughout the season.
At the same time of day, the Annual Settlement Shops Farm Market Plant Sale will be on the grounds at the Settlement from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. There will be lots of annuals, perennials, vegetable plants, handmade crafts and a delicious lunch by Door County Private Chef.
Great Northern by Design is the yellow building at the Settlement Shops, one mile south of downtown Fish Creek at 9106 Highway 42. For more information call 920.868.4135.
