“Sidelines” opens at Clausen Museum in Petersburg

Local artist Susan Christensen tonight opens up a show of paintings, drawings and sculpture called “Sidelines” at Petersburg’s Clausen Museum. Christensen has been showing some of her many colorful creations in fabric in recent years but in this show will be displaying some works she’s done in other media over that time, hence the title for the show.
