The Union Parish Museum of History and Art opened a very unique display on March 3 that will run for the next six weeks. The exhibit is a collection of paintings, “Clementine Hunter and Her Presence in the 21st Century”. It didn’t take me long to find one I liked. It was called “Two Men Fishing.” I could kind of relate to the photo because it was two men fishing, not two men catching. Both bobbers are in plain sight. No fish are anywhere to be seen.
The extensive exhibit is on loan from Tom Whitehead, biographer and personal friend of Clementine Hunter and Professor Emeritus of Journalism at Northwestern State.
Union Parish has a lot more than just fishing for sure!
The Museum is located in the same building as the local Chamber of Commerce on 116 N. Main Street. Phone number for information is 348-2005 or or you can check out more information on unionmuseumofhistoryandart.org
NOTE: I’ve had several requests through emails and notes for lake maps from folks outside our region. I’ve added a D’Arbonne Lake Map page to this site (see the tool bar at the top). Printed maps are on sale at several locations in Farmerville.
NOTE No. 2 — Both tainter gates are open at the Lake D’Arbonne spillway and water is running at a rapid rate over the top of the old spillway. Lake level is at 81.8 and has crested. Slow fall predicted in a few days.
