The artist Charles Marion Russell loved Christmas time. The Stark Museum of Art’s exhibit features a selection of holiday greetings the artist sent to friends. His words and pictures spread good cheer. This encore exhibit includes five holiday cards and one letter fragment that the artist drew, wrote, and sent. They reveal humor, sentiment, and good wishes.
