RUSSELL — The next exhibition at the Deines Cultural Center in Russell is “The Art of Peggy Wambold: A Solo Painting Exhibition.”
Wambold’s passion for art has been a life-long pursuit. She graduated from Fort Hays State University in 1971 with a Bachelor’s in Art and began teaching in McCook, Neb., in 1972. She has taught art at all grade levels, kindergarten through college, in three states. Wambold retired from teaching in 2010 and currently lives in Newton.
Wambold’s current focus is on the pursuit of beauty in nature. Inspired by French Impressionism, she studied painting in France in 2016. She is a member of the Carriage Factory Art Gallery in Newton and frequently shows in galleries around Kansas.
The Art of Peggy Wambold will be on exhibition Sept. 21 through Oct. 27, with an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. on Friday Sept. 21, at the Deines Cultural Center, located at 820 N. Main in Russell. Call 785-483-3742 for information. Admission is free and open to the public.
