Cedra Wood

Yes, there’s a major exhibit at the Nevada Museum of Art about the horse and its relationship to man. But tucked in a small corner is an exhibit that really impressed me, “Cedra Wood: A Residency on Earth.”

The landscape is the central narrative in all of her work. Wood was a Center for Art +Environment Research Fellow and spent time in the Arctic Circle on an expeditionary residency.

More than an exhibit, Wood’s work is an artistic experience that includes her realistic paintings, costumes she’s made during her travels, and a peek into her travel journals. It’s was very easy to quickly become entwined in her artistic journey. I wanted more and look forward to seeing more of her work.
