Logan County Arts and their home at the Lincoln Art Institute once
again hosted the annual art show for the students at Lincoln
Community High School.
After working for many months on their art under the guidance of art
teacher Lisa Miller, the students were able to see their art hanging
on the walls of an art gallery for all to see. And as usual, the
gallery was filled with artists, families eager to see the art their
kids created, and the public out to support the creativity of these
budding young artists.
Instructor Miller is in her second year at the school. I love my
job and this community, she said. As the only art teacher at the
high school, she has full rein over the program. We explore the
full gamut of art from painting to ceramics. I have freshman through
seniors in all of my classes, so it is fun to see the interaction
between the different classes, she said.
Lisa is an artist in her own right and along with her husband who is
a glass blower maintains a studio in Bloomington.
The show was carefully hung by gallery owner Moses Pinkerton to
allow more space between the art this year so each achieves a sort
of showcase of its own.
The newly painted walls of the gallery really make the art pop.

I enjoy working with Mrs. Miller. She selects the art for the show, makes sure
it is ready to hang, and delivers it on time. I really appreciate her dedication
to the show and her students. She does a wonderful job, he said. For Moses, the
bursts of color and the different styles, media, and subject matter are an
additional pleasure of the exhibition.
The student art show will hang for a month until the April opening for Logan
County Arts next themed show. If you want to view the student art exhibit,
