Mural for Mudbone Grown Unity Farm at Oregon Food Bank

October 26th, 2018

In June,  I worked on a team to help finish a mural in Southeast Portland.

In July, I was added to the Regional Arts & Culture Council’s Muralist Roster.

And now, I’ve finished a beautiful mural for Mudbone Grown Unity Farm at Oregon Food Bank!

I’ve been doing volunteer shifts in the gardens there for a couple years. I very much admire the work of Art and Shantae, the leaders of this urban farm.

Mural completed by Cedar Lee for Mudbone Grown Unity Farm at Oregon Food Bank

The design for this mural was sketched out by urban farmer and artist Edward Hill before I arrived to do the second half of the work.

I finished filling in the color and added all the finishing details to bring it together into this gorgeous, nature-inspired completed mural.

The plan is to eventually mount the mural up high on the wall of the building.

The mural is approximately 8′ tall and 36′ wide. 

Human for scale!

If you are local to Portland, you can go see it at the barn behind the Oregon Food Bank. (Sign up for a volunteer garden shift while you’re at it!)

I’m so happy to have been a part of this project!

Installation of Hector Hernandez Monarca Mural in Portland, OR

June 13th, 2018

All spring I have been taking this course in muralism under the brilliant mural artist Hector H. Hernandez through PSU.

Cedar Lee assisting in installation of Hector Hernandez Monarca Mural in Portland, OR

Here’s the project my team just completed! Hector already had a mural up on this building, and we added the top part under the eaves of the roof to complete the image.

We painted the image onto Pellon interfacing fabric, (similar to parachute fabric) then glued it onto the building with acrylic soft gel medium.

It’s a very cool technique that allows you to complete all your hours of painting elsewhere, then install the mural on site very quickly in one day.

Here are some pictures from my art reception in Portland last weekend!

Here I am (on the far right) giving my artist talk.

I shared my artist statements for the various collections of work on display, talked about the common threads uniting all my past work, and took questions from the audience.

Some may know I am active in the Portland contra dance community. A large group of my dance friends showed up, which was wonderful!

There were still quite a few stragglers at the end of the evening when it was time to go home.

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

February 27th, 2018

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.
