Not all the news from RuBert Studios is bad. On Wednesday, we’ll be traveling to the state capital for Russ to recieve his award from Govenor Blunt and the Missouri Arts Council. Each year the State of Missouri recognizes only one individual artist (including performing artists), so this is a huge honor. The award ceremony will be at the capitol rotunda at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, with a reception following at the state Governor’s Mansion.
Another notable artist is Susan Leslie Lumsden. She’s a member of Uncommon Threads and also a friend. Her work (an art quilt) was selected to grace the cover of this year’s poster and invitation.
