Busy Friday night: Uptigroves, Leflar at HAM

  • Ceramics by Donna Uptigrove, at HAM.

Sisters Amber Uptigrove and Donna Uptigrove and Fayetteville artist Sarah May Leflar are showing their work in "Found-Fired-Formed" at the Historic Arkansas Museum to the strains of the Meshugga Klezmer Band (my "Favorite") at tonight's 2nd Friday Art Night event, 5-8 p.m.

Donna U., a curator at the HAM, is showing what might be called narrative ceramics; Amber U. works in mixed media and Leflar is showing work using found objects.

In addition to the musical and performing art, there will be a mixology contest: the 7th Ever Nog-off eggnog contest. New contestants this year: Phil Brandon, spiking his brew with his new Rock Town Distillery’s Young Arkansas Bourbon, and Drue Patton of Argenta Arts Foundation with "OMnoG." Returning nogs by Mary Beth Ringgold of Copper Grill, Tracy Sterling of JAVA Roasting Express @ Wright & Chester and Bridget Farris, with her old Kentucky family recipe, will also be put to the test. The Capital Hotel Bar and Grill, an entrant last year, is sending over a new recipe with Tandra Watkins of Ashley’s. Kat Robinson of Eat Arkansas blog fame will be one of the judges, joining Lawrence Hamilton and Rex Nelson. There will be a people's choice, as always.

  • Townsend Wolfe, 1935-2017

    Max has posted on the Arkansas Blog the news of Townsend Wolfe's death. The photo Max chose is a great one, but I also wanted to put up this one of Wolfe with his trademark brown cigarette. A More cigarette? A Tiparillo? I don't remember, but I do remember that Wolfe was seldom seen without one. The last time I interviewed him, after the ill-fated "World of the Pharaohs" exhibit, he had quit smoking, but out of long habit patted his shirt pocket, where he'd always kept his cigarettes, from time to time thinking he'd find a pack there before remembering he'd given them up.
