Limited edition prints available to benefit Welch art scholarship

Art is a gift to treasure, especially when made by a young person. Thats why Austin Peay State University is reminding the community that limited edition prints are available for purchase to benefit the Natalie Jo Welch Scholarship in Art.

The prints are of the paintings created by Welch, an APSU art student who died in 2004 at the age of 22. She had just transferred from APSU to start art school at Savannah College of Art and Design.

Her mother, Jenny Welch, established the scholarship in 2005 in her daughters memory.
