30th Women in the Arts exhibit on display

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- The 30th Women in the Arts exhibit held their reception and awards ceremony earlier tonight at the Med Center Health WKU Health Sciences Complex.

Over 100 pieces of artwork were entered into the exhibit by females over 18 years old, including paintings, ceramics, and sculptures. 

The exhibit was on a two year hiatus due to Covid, but now it’s back and better than ever. 

Artist Cindy Lawrence won the Special Purchase Award, meaning the Med Center is going to buy her painting and hang it in the halls of their hospital. 

“I couldn’t believe it, I was shocked and just got all teary. I was just so excited, among all of these talented artists and I’ve never entered before, I couldn’t believe it,” said Lawrence. 

The exhibit is open to the public this Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
