Lindsey Harrod, a third-year art teacher at Grayson County High School, will be featured in a University of Kentucky exhibit opening next month.
High school art teachers from across the state were invited to submit their work for the first-time showcase designed to celebrate a range of unique artist/educators with a varied Kentucky audience.
Harrod’s submission, “Tranquil Forest,” is an oil painting of her favorite subjects: trees.
“This is one of my favorite pieces because I actually took two pictures on my camera and then looked at them to combine them together into a painting,” she said.
“High Art,” will run Oct. 8-30 in a new gallery space in the recently opened School of Art and Visual Studies building. The exhibit will run in conjunction with the Kentucky Art Education Fall Conference, scheduled for Oct. 8-10 in Lexington.
