On Friday, the 5, from 5 to 9 p.m., the Southeast Missouri Arts Council will be hosting a reception for Cape Girardeau native, Stephen Rust. The show will be on display until October 27. Executive Director, Murielle Wyman tells KZIM KSIM Rust’s work has a broad range of appeal!! He focuses primarily on outdoor spaces and landscapes. He goes on location, regardless of the weather conditions and creates larger versions in his studio space. He prefers not to paint from photographs. Another style that Rust enjoys is still life painting. He says this type of painting allows him to ‘delve deeper into form, and explore edges, composition, shadow and light’. Rust has exhibited his oil paintings at many galleries throughout Missouri. Meet him at the gallery tomorrow from 5 to 9 pm.
