The public is invited to join Rose Center in welcoming artist Nelson Ziegler to Morristown today, 2 – 4 p.m. in the Edith Davis Gallery.

Nelson Ziegler is a gifted artist in not one, but three distinct media. Ziegler is an award-winning oil painter, an award winning watercolorist and he is also a master wood turner.

His paintings feature the scenes Ziegler sees every day around his home in Sevier County or on hikes in the Smokies, and the simple moments he finds worthy of capturing.

His subject matter ranges from ocean scenes to mountain streams, and from old cars to musicians pickin’ guitars.

Ziegler is a member of the National Watercolor Society, New England Watercolor Society, the Oil Painters of America the Northshore Art Association and the American Association of Woodturners.

A native of New England, Ziegler is a graduate of the Art Institute of Boston and the Northwestern Academy of Watercolor.

After graduation, he obtained a position as an illustrator for 41 years with the same company.

After a long and satisfying professional career as an artist, Ziegler started looking for a place to retire, enjoy the good life, and find inspiration for his ongoing love affair with art.

He found all that and more in the quiet hills of East Tennessee.

“We are pleased to have an exhibit by such an accomplished and multitalented artist,” says Beccy Hamm, Program Director at Rose Center, “and we will have his watercolor and oil paintings, as well as woodturnings on display.”

Named 2016 “Artist of the Year” by Arrowmont’s Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage Committee, Ziegler has participated in numerous juried exhibitions in New York and across the country, including Allied Artists, American Artists Professional League, Salmagundi Club, Knickerbocker Artists, National Arts Club, Hudson Valley Arts Association, as well as Adirondack National Watercolor Exhibition, Faces of America (a national watercolor portrait show), Old Forge New York, Academic Artists Association, Springfield Arts League, Springfield, Mass., Guild of Boston Artists, Copley Society, Boston, Mass., North Shore Arts Association, Gloucester, Mass.”

Light refreshments for the opening reception will be provided by the Rose Service Guild.

“Oil & Water Do Mix” will be on display through May 26. Regular business hours for Rose Center are Monday – Friday, 9-5.
