Fall art exhibits plentiful in Pasco

The month of October brings several new art exhibits to local galleries. Of special note is the fine art of Frida Kahlo via a traveling exhibit at the Pasco-Hernando State College West Campus. The exhibit celebrates the artist's attention to Mexican and indigenous cultures and the depiction of the female experience and form, revealed in her paintings and self-portraits.
