Cecilia Lieder

A picture of Cecilia Lieder from her Northern Printmakers Alliance artist webpage, found at Northern Prints Gallery.

Cecilia Lieder, a 1964 College of St. Catherine graduate, is a Minnesota-born printmaker from Minneapolis who has been working for over 35 years, creating beautiful original woodcuts and stone lithographs. Her work has been shown in the Boston area, where she spent 10 years working in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Lieder now lives in Duluth, Minnesota. Using a combination of Western and Eastern printing methods, Lieder creates scenes of natural settings, translating the growth and beauty of the world around her. She uses layers of bright colors to create a brilliant glowing effect, allowing her images to jump off the page. While Lieder's prints are realistic, they have a level of transcendence to them. "I am looking for truth through a keenly focused observation of the natural world around me" (Cecilia Lieder). Artist biography courtesy of the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery.

While Lieder has various pieces highlighting natural scenes or people in the moment, this exhibit focuses on highlighting Lieder's skill with capturing flora and greenery in vibrant color.
