The UAFS Gallery of Art and Design is excited to present a recent major donation and accompanying exhibition for Fall 2023!
This first major exhibition on Harold Keller (1928-2017) will be based on a transformative donation of the artist’s work to the permanent collection. The donation, consisting of over forty works including paintings, drawings, ceramics, and artist books, along with a collection of over three-hundred working drawings, makes the university the largest repository of the artist’s work and the largest gift to the gallery to date.
"Harold Keller: Portals" will explore the artist’s whimsical style that fused the fantastic with the everyday. It will also commemorate his influence on the institution as both artist and professor, serving as the first full-time art professor at Fort Smith Junior College (now UAFS) from 1956-1962.
Exhibit and Gallery are open weekdays 9am-4pm.

Join us on November 29th, 2023, at The Medium in Springdale, Arkansas, for a delightful evening of the Mixtape Music Series featuring two exceptional artists, Ashtyn Barbaree and Candy Songs. The music begins with Candy Songs at 5 pm, followed by Ashtyn Barbaree at 6:30 pm. This event is free, open to all ages, and offers handicap-accessible parking.
Candy Songs is a YouTube sensation known for entertaining and educational kid's music videos. Her content explores themes like social skills, emotional intelligence, and positive routines while infusing music with valuable lessons. Joining Candy for this special show is her band, the Backyard Bugs, for a unique musical journey focused on bugs. They perform original bug-themed songs, don bug costumes, and involve the audience in trivia and dance, complete with a captivating caterpillar-to-butterfly transformation.
Ashtyn Barbaree is a talented Americana singer and multi-instrumentalist from Fayetteville, Arkansas. She'll be showcasing her very first all-original piano performance, a departure from her usual guitar and ukulele compositions. The audience can anticipate an intimate setting with unique melodies and heartfelt storytelling. This performance marks a significant milestone as many of these songs will be featured on Ashtyn's upcoming record, scheduled to be recorded at Haxton Road Studios in Northwest Arkansas this Winter.
This series was made possible by CACHE, the Creative Exchange Fund (CXF) and Tyson Family Foundation. Thank you for continuing to support local artists.

We are kicking off the planning process for the newly designated Butterfield Overland National Historic Trail. An important first step in this process is meeting with those that live and work along the trail to build partnerships, get ideas for how to promote and develop the trail, and to answer any questions people might have about what it means to have a Congressionally designated National Historic Trail.
