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.
Musicks 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
Musicks husband, Jerry, is a former Ozarks Board of Trustees member.

Hannahs performance of medieval English stories,
comedy and song is the first event of this academic year for the Walton
Program. This years 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.
Marthas 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 Commissions
Arts in Education roster and the Mid-America Arts Alliances Heartland
Arts Fund Program.
