  • Graves chosen as September artist of the month at La Grange gallery

    LA GRANGE, Ky. – Like many artists, Sharon Graves started out dabbling in the arts as a hobby.

    In 2010, she decided to test her theory. “I decided I was either going to get serious about moving into a fine art genre or I was going to quit thinking about it all the time.”
