While covering the news as a former reporter for The Cynthiana Democrat, Lisa Hurst developed a love for photography.
Hurst left the newspaper in 2000, but never stopped taking pictures.
“I take pictures of lots of things,” she said Monday afternoon.
One of her pictures will be among the art displayed at the Governor’s Derby Exhibition at the Capitol Rotunda.
“I was pleased,” Hurst said about finding out that her work had been selected.
Hurst’s art showcases a close photograph of a hibiscus plant.
