If you have ever taken a figure-drawing class in the Sacramento area over the past few decades or know someone who has, you likely have seen—in the flesh—Diane Baxter. For more than 35 years, the heavyset and incredibly patient Baxter has been posing for aspiring artists as they used her form to learn how to draw the human body. See the artistic interpretations of this longtime member of the art community in this juried exhibition at Capital ArtWorks.
