Visual, Performing Arts at ACO in July

The Arts Center of the Ozarks in Springdale has two exhibits and a great play for arts lovers in July.
“A Place Called Home” is on exhibit July 3-27 in the Smith-Kelly Gallery and is the collaborative works of Megan Chapman and Stewart Bremner. They have merged their talents to create something new and more complex as the two artists search for where they belong and a place to call home.

Also on exhibit, “Simple Color” by local artist Joseph Smiley can be seen in the McCuistion-Matthews Gallery from July 3-27. He specializes in abstract paintings but also works with multiple mediums including oil, acrylic, and spray paints.
A reception for both of these gallery works is set for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on July 10.

If you’d like to catch some performance art, the opening night gala for “The Drowsy Chaperone” is July 6. This recent Broadway hit is a homage ot the musicals of the early 20th century as well as a classic girl-meets-boy, girl-gets-boy story line. The gala begins at 6:30 p.m. and the plays starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for students. Performances run July 6-8 and 12-14.
