Heather Hailstones can appreciate a good beer. Now her artwork will appear on about 48,000 cans of them. Hailstones, a Jacksonville artist who attended Fletcher High School and the University of North Florida, will have one of her paintings printed on Untitled Art’s All Together beer cans, the proceeds of which will be given to groups that help workers in the hospitality industry later this month.
