Pruys exhibit

Duane Hicks

Natasha Gaudio admired the detail of the painting, “Max,” on Thursday evening at the Fort Frances Museum during an opening reception for “Reflections of Realism,” a new exhibit by Cher Pruys. She had finished this painting, which depicts local youngster Max Moen with an all-day lollipop at the Emo Fair, just in time for the opening. Pruys’ photorealistic paintings will be displayed on the main floor of the museum through March and April.
