Laura Ruprecht spent the last six years as the studio and exhibitions manager for the Paramount Center for the Arts in St. Cloud, Minn. Her job kept her busy as did being a teaching artist to people of all ages and abilities. It took coming to Jamestown as the Arts Center's artist-in-residence to give her some time to work on her own art. "I do a lot of art teaching in St. Cloud," she said. "I needed an escape to do my artwork."
