On Tuesday morning, art consultant Meridith McKinley, at left, talks about her role as Dann Patterson, chairman of the Barkley Regional Airport ad hoc committee, and artist Char Downs listen. McKinley visited local artists at Pinecone Gallery, 421 N. 7th St., to hear their input on artwork for the new airport passenger terminal project.

It’s not easy to absorb a community’s culture in two days, but Meridith McKinley has 20 years of practice.

The art consultant arrived Monday for a brief visit to help Barkley Regional Airport officials plan a curation process for artwork installation in the new terminal next spring.
