On June 5, 2012, the Wichita community suffered a huge loss when one of our great local artists, Diane Thomas Lincoln passed away. The loss was sudden. This beautiful soul and talent, with a heart as big as the sun was here smiling one day and simply gone the next.
The art community felt the instant vacuum. A hugely gifted painter, professor, mentor to so many, and specialist in the restoration of liturgical work, historical buildings, and objects, Diane could never be replaced, and everyone in the Wichita Arts community knew it.
