  • Student artwork to be exhibited at Woodland Gallery

    LaRue County High School’s advanced art class is doing something that, according to their teacher, Monique Hanna, is a first for the school – exhibiting their works in an art gallery.
    On April 29, from 5-8 p.m., the students will show paintings and a sculpture at Woodland Gallery, 2410 Ring Road in Elizabethtown.
    “Lynn Cowan is the owner of the gallery and has always been very supportive of the art of young people,” said Hanna. “This year the advanced work was so impressive that it seemed only right to put it before the public.”
