Gray Edelen, left, an art history student from Bardstown, talked with medical students Taylor Gilbert of Lexington, center, and Amanda Pursell of Louisville about Robert Tharsing’s 2011 painting “A Natural History of Kentucky”, which hangs in the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center. They were participating in a seminar in which UK art and medical students observed and described works of art to improve the medical students’ observation skills. The seminar grew out of a presentation at UK in February by Amy Herman. by Tom Eblen | teblen@herald-leader.com
