KHS art students participate in Traveling Art Gallery at Heartland Pathways

The public can check out the KHS Traveling Art Gallery at Heartland Pathways, 1626 Morgan Street, in Keokuk. It features brand new artwork by students and the work is available for sale.

The program is focused on showing student artwork so it may be enjoyed by the community and to recognize “students for their hard work,” Leo Clark, KHS art teacher, said. “It is our hope that this will instill a greater sense of pride in our students’ work.”

The sale of the artwork is to show students that independent artists can earn a living wage through a personal creative practice, Clark said. Proceeds from each work in the gallery that are sold will go directly to the student artist. The frames are not part of the sale and will remain the property of the KHS Art Department.
