The Union School Heritage Center will host a three day, one woman art show beginning Friday and ending Sunday, June 16.
The show will be open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Beth Harper O’Neal is the featured artist for this show. O’Neal, a native of Paris, received her BA in art education from Arkansas Tech University and holds a Master’s Degree. She has been a public school art educator for 23 years, teaching in elementary and junior high school. In 2001, she was the only artist from Arkansas to attend the Chicago Art Teacher Insitute of Contemporary Art. She has also created several works on display in the area.
She and her husband operate O’Neal Limousin Farm in Branch. She attends Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Caulksville, where she is the organist. She and her husband Gary have four children and six grandchildren.
Friday, O’Neal will have a special workshop for those interested in learning to do metal tooling. This workshop will be from 9 a.m until noon. The cost is $20 and all materials and ink will be furnished. Everyone participating should have a finished art project to take home with them. There will be only enough room for 10 to 12 participants, so those interested should call 264-7558 to register. O’Neal has donated several of these paintings for Boy’s and Girl’s Club fund raisers over the past several years.
Another Art Workshop for Children will be scheduled later in the month for elementary school children. The workshop will be free of charge and details will be announced later.
