The Four Seasons of The Cedars


Started as an avenue to raise funds to maintain The Cedars, doctor circa 1840, by offering four art exhibits each year, this award winning series has grown to be one of FRF’s most popular endeavors drawing 400-500 art lovers to each opening night. This ambitious project of offering four art exhibits, featuring new and veteran artists’ work, was begun over a decade ago.  A portion of the proceeds from each piece of art sold is designated for improvement to The Cedars, Jackson’s oldest residential home.

This series has grown to include art camps for local public school students and, in 2012, expanded to include three additional music concerts held in June, July and August on the lawn of The Cedars and a first-ever juried art show. Additionally, The Cedars plays host to a number of non-profits as a popular meeting place as well as a special event venue for weddings and receptions.  Celebrating 175 years in 2015, The Cedars is the “crown jewel” of the Fondren area and the Jackson community.
