The art of Betty Norris and Steve Huber will be on exhibit at the Guachoya Cultural Art Center in Lake Village through January 27.
Betty Norris, a 20-year resident of Lake Village, is a native of Mississippi. Dr. Steve Huber is a resident of Cleveland, Mississippi.
After receiving her teaching degree from the University of Arkansas at Monticello in 2013, Norris taught 4th and 5th grades at St. Mary’s Catholic School in Lake Village. Betty enjoys writing and has published one book, “My Special Ops Guardian”, the story of a young woman hiding from the mob that is rescued and protected by a stranger.
Norris enjoys the outdoors, fishing at Lake Chicot and remodeling old houses. She has been painting since 2008.
She is married to Tommy Norris. They have two sons, Allen and Leland.
Huber, the pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Cleveland, Mississippi, uses melted crayons to make paintings. His inspiration for this art was watching children making projects in Vacation Bible School. He has experimented and brought it to a whole new level.
His “paper people” began after taking a fiber class at Delta State University on paper making. He will be explaining the technique for this at the reception.
As a young boy, Huber loved playing in the dirt. As an adult he is still doing that, in a different form. He makes pottery and will include some of his pottery in this exhibit. He also enjoys wood working and will have a couple of handmade tables for sale in this exhibit, plus a 16 foot canoe made of maple wood.
Huber is married to Ann Huber, physics professor at Morehead Community College. They have been married 35 years and have four children.
The exhibit will be up until January 27.
The Guachoya Cultural Art Center is open Tuesday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and on Fridays from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. The Center is located at 1752 Hwy. 65 and 82 South in Lake Village.
