Russ Peterson will be featured in this show.
About 15 years ago, Russ Peterson went to Monhegan Island to support his nephew's efforts to take a painting class with Caleb Stone. His nephew was a little skeptical about going to Monhegan since he didn't know anyone there. So his willingness to join in the same class was just what he needed. While Russ was already familiar with Caleb and Monhegan, he had not painted since he was a sophomore in High School.
