RUSSELL — The exhibit Prairie Structures: Natural or Man-made, will open Saturday, Oct. 10, at the Deines Cultural Center in Russell. There will be an opening reception from 5-8 p.m. that day at the gallery.
Inspired by Kansas Main Streets, award winning Topeka artist Becky Drager creates lively, historic downtown scenes.
“ These paintings are meant to inspire the viewer to see the ordinary and what we take for granted in a new way by bringing them into the foreground of our lives,” Drager said. “Using super-saturated colors and a modern graphic look, I make the native limestone, brick, metal or animals pop with energizing life by injecting the painting with inspirational color that enhances the beauty of the object whether it is natural or man-made.”
Becky’s husband, musician Kirk Drager, will be preforming live the evening of the reception.
Prairie Structures: Natural or Man-made will be on display through Nov. 13.
The Deines Cultural Center is located in Russell at 820 North Main Street. For inquiries, contact the center by email: email@example.com or by phone: 785-483-3742. Admission is free and all welcome.
