Boone County painter Anthony Stollings has had work chosen for the annual exhibit two years in a row. This year, his piece is titled “Hidden Treasures” and depicts two riverboats docked along the Ohio River in Newport.

Stollings says his father was an artist who encouraged his family to be creative.

The exhibit will be on display until May 7. Capitol building hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
