Art to-do on Sunday: FOCC auction

The Friends of Contemporary Crafts have brought nationally-recognized craft artists to Little Rock for Sunday programs for several years. These are excellent talks by America's top talent, followed by a nice meal and libations. Here's a way to keep the talks coming: Head to the Arts Center at 5:30 p.m. this Sunday, June 23, for a silent auction of art donated by private collectors and artists.

Anncha Briggs, who's heading up the auction, says the value of the items — about 65 objets d'arts in all media — ranges from $50 to $2,800.

Here's a link to a gallery of some of the work to be auctioned. If I had the wherewithal, the rug shown above would be mine, all mine.

Wine and light snacks will be served. The FOCC will hold its annual meeting after the auction, at 6:30 p.m., so don't dawdle.

You can also join the FOCC while you're there to receive its newsletter and free admission to FOCC events.

Postscript: The event is free to FOCC members; others will pay $20 (for a membership).

    You know, Bentonville has a lot going for it. A good museum, an art hotel, great places to eat and, yes, you can now get a drink there.But it has its right-wing magical thinkers, too.
