Reception This Friday: Cedar Lee Show “Keep the Wonder”

By Artbycedar

Over the weekend, I installed my solo show “Keep the Wonder” at West Hills Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Southwest Portland.

Here’s me (2nd from right) with the gallery team after we’d worked together to hang the show:

This exhibition features a variety of themes I’ve explored in my work: the Tree of Life series, the Eclipse series, a few of my older works from my Cosmic Dance series, and a few pieces from the Lotus series.

Unfortunately, my current focus in the studio, the Looking Up series, is not included in this exhibition, but there will be plenty of future opportunities to see those paintings over the next year!

It’s the first time my work has been shown in the sanctuary of a church, and I like the large open room with high ceilings, and the way my bold, colorful paintings transformed the space.

This is the first time my recent Eclipse paintings will be exhibited in Portland since they came down from my solo show in Kentucky that celebrated the total solar eclipse last summer!
