A venture to this state park is on the must-do list for many, the park being the only spot in North America where you can dig for diamonds and other gemstones and keep your finds.
There won't be any work by Degas there, but folks who love the dance and paintings of dancers should check out "Picturing Movement," a sale and show of paintings by Doug Gorrell to benefit Ballet Arkansas tonight from 6-8 p.m. at the THEA Center, 401 Main St., North Little Rock.
Ballet company members Leslie Dodge, Lauren McCarty Horak, Toby Lewellen, Anna Maris, Sean Porter and trainee Jake Catlett will do "mini-performances" during the event. All proceeds from the sale of Gorrell's work will go to Ballet Arkansas.
