Great Northern by Design will host watercolor and pastel artist Kathleen Nelson on May 28, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm. Nelson has been a working artist and educator for 20 years. This is the 12th year that she has come to Great Northern to share her painting expertise. She loves nature and is always inspired by the beauty and unexpected surprises of Door County. Last season she had woken up to observe deer in her woods near Kangaroo Lake and, naturally, was inspired to paint them that day. Within her brush and mixed media work she works in a loose fashion, creating colorful still life, floral and abstract landscapes. Lately she has been studying portraits of people and is enjoying playing with this as new subject matter. Her work of bright colors and loose brushstrokes makes you feel happiness.
New pieces by Nelson will be on display along with her notecards. Refreshments will be on hand. At the same time of day, the Settlement Shops Farm Market Plant Sale will be on the grounds on May 28, 9:30 am – 1:30 pm.
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.
