A life well lived was enjoyed by Ukiah’s accomplished artist Adele Pruitt, who died late last month at the age of 99. An accomplished painter, art teacher, conservator, restorer, and educational reformer, Pruitt was a respected member of the Mendocino art community whose impressive breadth of work and accomplishments merit recognition. Jayed Scotti, Pruitt’s longtime student and co-worker, remarks on the qualities that made Pruitt a remarkable individual.
