Father's, daughter's work featured in exhibit

JOPLIN, Mo. — A father-daughter exhibit is the July exhibit at the Post Memorial Art Reference Library, 300 S. Main St.

Bill Meeker saw everything around him as a blank canvas. He made it his life's mission to explore a full realm of creativity from landscaping to the most delicate watercolor. The exhibit shows a selection of his works as a memorial to his talent.

Shown along with Meeker's work are the miniature animals created by his daughter, Camille Meeker Turner. She works primarily in a 1Ú12 scale. Each piece is created using polymer clay, acrylic paint, hand-selected silk, alpaca, yak and camel blended fibers. Turner combines her passion for creativity and her love of animals.

Images of select works can be viewed at and on the museum's Facebook page.

The exhibit is open to the public at no charge. It is open from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday and Thursday; 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
