Artists explain inspiration for work entered in annual art show

(Continued)

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

Anderson painted from memory the barn and fields, where she grew up, and chicken coop where a snake once kept her from collecting eggs.

She told the story of her crowing contest with one of the farm roosters and how she aggravated the rooster to the point he ended up attacking her father.

The old farm is long gone, but for Anderson it lives on in her memory and was an inspiration for her painting.

The art show was considered fairly small, with only 20 artists participating in the event.

“When they told me it was a small show I was like ‘Aww,’” Special Juror Debbie J. Wagers said about the gallery.  “But then I saw the work that these artists had done and it really made it hard to make a decision.”

 

Winning artists included (by category):

• Animal:  Angela Rose Darrow of Laurel County, first place; Adrienne Newberry of Laurel County, second place; Kevin Gilbert of Laurel County, third place.

• Contemporary: Brandon Thorpe of Laurel County, first place; Mary Stuart of Laurel County, second place; Faye Miracle of Laurel County, third place.
