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
