Henderson County Public Library, 101 S. Main Street, Henderson, KY

February 7 to April 12 Dressed to Match by Emily Gartner
“My new collections give a nod to the 1960’s when British rock was all the rage, my father’s painting business was flourishing, sewing machines were a popular household gift & modernist paintings were considered posh interiors. All of these have  been interwoven into pairing elements of nostalgia with a modern interpretation”.


Upcycling classes led by Emily Gartner will be held at the library on March 12 & March 19.

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC – Call OVAL Director, Jordyn, @ 812-499-9516 to registe
