Local artist Kym Bushong has been drawing, painting, composing music, and singing for decades now. This evening the pubic will have an opportunity to experience several of Bushong's talents at a single venue.

The Athens Arts Gallery will be the host of a reception this this evening, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Gallery at 113 N. Washington St.

"Dirt Roads I 'ave Known" features Bushong's recent watercolor and pencil work. Bushong will also entertain visitors with a concert of her own original songs. Refreshments will be served.

Bushong's visual arts are notable for their exceptional, quiet detail which give a glimpse into some of our county's backroads and into the backroads the artist's her own life. One watercolor portrays an old, blue Dodge truck parked in the snow under the overhang of a weathered barn. This painting "Nickel Coke and a Hershey Bar," and the other paintings have lots of stories to tell.

This event is free and open to the public.
