<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Jody Klein—PUBLISHER<br /> Dear Readers,<br /> The school year has started, so many of us are enjoying having a daily routine<br /> that doesn't include being an on-call, full-time taxi! I hope this means we all<br /> have a little more time to spoil ourselves and take advantage of the activities<br /> happening around town this month.<br /> September brings one of my favorite three-day events: Autumn & Art. This<br /> art festival takes place outdoors along the Bradley Fair Parkway and attracts<br /> artists from all over the country, including several of Wichita's most talented<br /> artists, such as Ernest Vincent Wood III.<br /> I chose to highlight Ernest, who prefers "Vince,” on the cover for many reasons.<br /> First is his beautiful, award-winning oil painting, "Hope," which hangs in the back-<br /> ground of the cover photo. After talking to Vince, I learned that he poured so much<br /> more than talent and time into this painting. <a title="Splurge!
