Trail of Tears art displayed
   
Artist Pat Musick of Huntsville, Ark., will present her exhibit, “Yokes on the Trail of Tears,” throughout October as the artist of the month at Ozarks’ Stephens Gallery.
   The exhibit was created as a tribute to the Cherokees who traveled the Benge Route across Arkansas in 1838 and consists of a large sculpture with photographs and text. The sculpture was taken to 20 sites along the Trail, assembled and photographed. The work evokes wagon trails, processions, burdens and yokes, and great stone tears. Musick’s media — stone, steel and wood — are derived from native Arkansas materials. The work is a reflection of the river valley in which    Musick lives. Musick, who has a Ph.D. in philosophy from Cornell University, has had her art displayed throughout the world.
Musick’s husband, Jerry, is a former Ozarks Board of Trustees member. They created the Ozarks Woodland Sculpture Garden near their home in Madison County.

Medieval storyteller scheduled
   
Ozarks will present “Martha Hannah, Medieval Teller of Tales” at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 14, as part of the 2003-2004 Walton Arts & Ideas Series.
   Tickets are free for U of O students, faculty and staff, and $10 for the general public.
   Hannah’s performance of medieval English stories, comedy and song is the first event of this academic year for the Walton Program. This year’s theme is “A Tour of the British Isles.”
   With a cockney accent and clad in period costume, Hannah, as the hilarious Maid Martha, takes audiences back to an earlier time by weaving a vivid verbal picture of medieval history, fantasy and ghost stories in this entertaining and educational show designed for the whole family. Versatile and dynamic and with a love for working with a live audience, she draws the audience in and brings them on stage with hilarious results.
   “Martha’s expressiveness, vitality, great knowledge of Medieval England, beautiful singing voice and great choice of musical accompaniment all added up to a rollicking good time,” wrote one reviewer of her show.
   An avid arts-in-education advocate, Hannah is a veteran professional character actor. She is a performing artist on the touring roster with the Texas Commission on the Arts, the Tennessee Arts Commission’s Arts in Education roster and the Mid-America Arts Alliance’s Heartland Arts Fund Program.
