Valley artist Richard Burhans has been selected as the artist of the month of June by the city of Covington.

His exhibit at the Covington City Hall, 16720 S.E. 271st St., suite 100, includes several works from his Garden Collection series, and four new paintings done for this show: Mount Si and Friends, Summer Bouquet, Under the Wisteria and Three Amigos.

"Amigos" is significant for its portrayal of Valley residents Bob Drake, Boyd McCracken and Lee Riley. All were good friends and all have surviving relatives in the Valley today.

Burhans last showed in Covington in 2012.
