DiverseArts Culture Works Artist Spotlight - Beth Consetta Rubel's Closing Reception

On August 1 our artist in residence, Beth Consetta Rubel, had her closing reception at the New East Arts Gallery, and although all of us here at DiverseArts are sad to see her go, we're positive that someone as talented as her has a bright future ahead of her.
