The Trigg County Educational Foundation, which is independent from the schools and is led by members of the community and several school employees, has given $500 to the high school for an art gallery. A group of framed artworks now line the wall outside the Little Theater. Eileen Kehrwald, secretary to Superintendent Tim McGinnis and member of the foundation, said that art itself is taken from folders that come with art textbooks at the school. Right now, the featured artwork is that of the Impressionist painters. There are several framed paintings by Vincent Van Gough, Claude Monet, Edouard Manet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Beside each of them is a card with a few paragraphs describing the history of not only the artist, but the painting itself.
