Fulton artist Jane Mudd paints a portrait of Gale Fuller in front of Well Read Books in downtown Fulton as part of a series called Reading Faces.

For 16 Saturdays this summer, local artist Jane Mudd has sat down with paint and canvas and made new friends in front of Well Read Books in downtown Fulton.

The results of all those Saturdays — Reading Faces — will be up for display from 5-7 p.m. Thursday at the book store for the start of a month-long exhibition.

Mudd said the Reading Faces portrait series got started after a conversation with Well Read owners Brian and Danielle Warren and from a desire to get back in touch with the local community after focusing her creative efforts in Columbia and William Woods University, and also to create a stronger tie between Court Street and the Fulton Farmer’s Market.

“I thought it would be great if we could create some kind of event where people might come up Court Street,” she said. “It’s a great way to get to know people because you are working three hours to talk with people and listen to their stories.”
