13th Annual Paul Farrell Memorial Art Auction

By Bryon Test, Art Dept. Chair on 02/13/2013 Goodwell, Okla.—The 13th Annual Paul Farrell Memorial Art Auction, hosted by the OPSU Art Department, will be held March 1, 2013, at the Pickle Creek Center in Guymon, Okla. The special guest of honor will be Margie Farrell, Paul's widow. Since his death in 2000, she has been a strong supporter of the OPSU Art Department. Margie firmly believes in the importance of the Paul Farrell Memorial Art Scholarship, which is funded by the auction and benefits students in the OPSU Art Department. After being severely injured in September 2012, she vowed to attend her late husband's memorial art auction this year, "even if in a wheelchair."

The art auction will feature a donated painting by Carol Beesley, professor emeritus at University of Oklahoma, and works by the OPSU faculty, alumni, and OPSU students. There will be a range of media, including drawings, paintings, photographs, jewelry, and ceramics.

The doors will open at 6 p.m. and there will be a door prize. The door prize will be a work by Paul Farrell, graciously donated by Margie Farrell. Live music will be provided by Chuck Alexander. The dinner will begin at 7 p.m. and will be prime rib, catered by Hunny's. The auction of the artwork will begin at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the Paul Farrell Memorial Art Auction will be $40 and can be purchased at the Wildhorse Gallery in Guymon, Okla.; the OPSU Guymon Classroom at 304 NW 5th, Guymon; and from members of the OPSU Images Art Club. For more information, contact Bryon Test at 806-339-4343.
