Hesston Record StaffHALLIE Rucker and Bobbie Hague are the two members of the Wellness Center Painting Club that have work on display in the WalkAbout Galllery through the end of September.

HALLIE Rucker and Bobbie Hague are the two members of the Wellness Center Painting Club that have work on display in the WalkAbout Galllery through the end of September. The Painting Club meets every Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. in the art studio.

Residents with an appreciation for local arts can visit the Walkabout Gallery through the end of the month for the chance to purchase paintings created by the Painting Club at the Hesston Wellness Center.

The two primary artists of the gallery showing are Hallie Rucker and Bobbie Hague.

The club, which has five ladies in regular attendance, meets every Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. at the Hesston Wellness Center art studio.

The women work on creations of all mediums - ranging from paintings in acrylics and oils to cross stitch.

“This is a time we can devote to this which we might not get to at home,” said member Linda Driskill.

Driskill added the current group of painters and stitchers has a long history together.

“The four of us [Rucker, Hague, Driskill and Carol Hague] used to belong to a group of mothers that got together and we did hand-work stitching, not painting,” she said.

Today, Carol Hague keeps up the tradition of stitching. On Tuesday morning, she was just beginning a 12-inch hoop cross stitch pattern.

“I do these angels, and it takes me about two years because I don’t sit down and do it every day,” she said.

However, Hague has been able to create smaller works of art, painting rocks.

“Recently, Linda and I have ben painting on rocks. I brought them back from California. My daughter lives in California close to the beach and there were a lot of great rocks there,” she said.

The painted rocks have been a hot trend in Hesston, and the greater Wichita metro area lately with brightly-colored pieces of art turning up in public places across the tri-county area.

Other members of the group agreed their artwork can be time-consuming.

“It takes a month or more to do a painting. Some go faster than others,” said Rucker.

Hiebert, who was visiting from New Mexico and working on a painting of her own, added, “I don’t think people appreciate how much time people put into their art.”

The group, founded by the late Dorothy Young, is still going strong and welcomes members of the community to join them in the studio on Tuesdays.

It’s a nice space to come and do this,” said Carol Hague. “There’s plenty of room good lighting and it’s good fellowship,“ she said

Hiebert quipped, “And you don’t have to throw a log on the fire.”

The exhibition will be hanging in the gallery, located below the Hesston Wellness Center, through the end of September. All pieces are priced, framed and ready for sale.

Hesstonains will have the opportuntiy to take a culinary tour around the world at Hesston College during Home Sweet Hesston. Dallas Stutzman of Hesston College said the international tasting event is a tribute to the diversity of Hesston College, and a head-nod to the college’s ninth president, Joe Manikam, a former student with a long history of international travel and work.

“We had so much fun hosting the community meal last year. We had over 1,000 people come and eat. We had a lot of excitement to see what Hesston College was all about. We said we needed to continue that tradition,” said Stutzman.

This year, rather than just a traditional American barbecue, Stutzman said the college reached out to the Manikam family for inspiration.

Record StaffMENARDMENARD

Hesston Mennonite Brethren Church has announced the addition of Jared Menard as the new Youth Minister of the church. Menard has taken the position as Jared Redding departs for a long-term missionary appointment.

Menard, a McPherson native, graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe with a bachelor’s degree, majoring in sociology.  This is Menard’s sixth year in ministry.  He began his youth ministry career at New Hope Church in McPherson.

“I really felt like it wasn’t my decision. I subconsciously fought a call that God had on my life. After college, it finally got through and I understood it and it made sense to pursue it.  In a good way, there wasn’t any other option for me,” said Menard.
