Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore Welcomes 2017 Artist-In-Residence

September 21, 2017

Munising, Michigan – Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore welcomes artist Todd Marsee as the 2017 Artist-in-Residence (AIR). Marsee, an award-winning Michigan watercolorist from Ann Arbor, MI, will live and work in the national lakeshore for three weeks starting on September 18 as part of the park’s annual AIR program.

Marsee’s watercolor paintings usually feature natural imagery overlaid on abstract, textured backgrounds. “My paintings are interpretations of the fragile beauty and resilience of nature,” Marsee says. “Textures, patterns, and designs of nature inspire me to paint. I’m eager to see how my time in the Upper Peninsula will be visible in my art.”

Marsee will host a free outdoor painting demonstration for the public from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, September 30 at Miners Castle. To view a variety of Marsee’s work go to: http://www.marseegallery.com/ or on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/artoftoddmarsee/.
