CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. — Myrtie R. Parsley’s work will be on display exhibit at the Campbellsville University Pence-Chowning Art Gallery located at 205 University Drive, Campbellsville, Ky 42718.
Parsley’s work will be displayed from Feb. 8 until Feb. 26. On Feb. 25 a reception will be held from 3:30 p.m. until 5 p.m. Everyone is encouraged to attend the reception and to visit the gallery to view the exhibit.
Parsley earned her master’s degree in art from Western Kentucky University. During her time at WKU she wrote poetry. Those pieces will also be displayed at the exhibit.
Parsley has also decided to include a few pictures of her garden in the exhibit because she considers her garden as much art as her paintings.
Until her retirement she taught art to high school students in Green County. Afterward, she taught art appreciation at Campbellsville University.
