  • Local talent

    In the art world, one of the greatest sense of accomplishments is being able to show work in an exhibit. The opportunity gives artists a way to show and share their talent with the public.
    But while exhibits are the norm in galleries, finding one to show the work of local artists exclusively is not. Karen Wray Fine Art Gallery and Studio on Trinity Drive is one of those galleries. Not only does Wray exhibit the art of local artists, but she also teaches locals to become artists.
    On June 1, Wray’s students got a chance to showcase their artwork as her first ever student art show opened with a public reception. The show features works by adult students, some of whom have been Wray’s students for a couple of years, while others are new students.
