A registration form may also be picked up in person at the Arts Council at 16 N. Spanish Street in downtown Cape Girardeau. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

From the artist’s website: Michelle Wells is a St. Louis-based artist and gallery owner, and has long connected nature with emotion. She received her art degree from Langara College in Vancouver, British Columbia. Over the years, painting has become Wells' career and focus.

"Each piece I paint, whether a cityscape or natural landscape, is truly an invitation -- to encourage each person to step inside the scene and step back into a memorable time in their lives." Michelle Wells?
