Please join us for a reception with Emporia painter Kate Rhoads, our Artist of the Month, from 2 to 4 p.m. on Friday, July 28.

Kate, a retired nurse, has an art studio in rural Lyon County. She works with acrylics and favors an impressionistic style for her subjects, which include landscapes, portraits and objects. Kate is a member of the Flint Hills Artist Guild.
