Here’s a photograph of the exhibition committee and a couple of very special guests, made at the exhibition’s opening.
Mark is the Chief Curator of Fine Art at the Indiana State Museum. Jack Russell is Jim’s nephew. Ron Kern is the author of Style, Elegance and Wit: Rediscovering the Life and Art of James Spencer Russell. Julie Kern researched Jim’s life and art for the exhibition and the book. Wade Bussert was a very good friend of Jim’s and is the keeper of Jim’s personal archive. Dr. Steven Conant, MD is the trailblazer and sponsor for the exhibition.
