It will be a perfect night for art walking. Along with Thea, Argenta's other galleries are staying open from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight for the monthly Argenta ArtWalk. The Paint Box Gallery and Frame Shop (in the shop formerly occupied by Ketz Gallery) is featuring paintings by Robin Miller-Bookhout and will have work by Jan Ironside, Angela Green and Dawn Clark as well. Jeweler Susan Strauss will be at the Argenta Branch of the Laman Library. Starving Artist Studios (not the cafe) on 108 Fourth St., just behind Argenta Drug, will showcase the paintings of the Times' own Mike Spain. Greg Thompson Fine Art has added new work to its "Southern Landscapes" exhibit that opened in September. Amy Bell will be one of the street booth artists tonight, showing her jewelry made from "repurposed" items.

Other participating venues include Claytime Gallery, First Presbyterian Church, Blake's Furniture, Chop Salon, Argenta Healing Arts, Argenta Bead Company and Crush Wine Bar. Argenta Market will have free goodies.

  • Bill to regulate dog breeders draws opposition inside chamber from industry rep

    A fight could be brewing over regulation of puppy mills, with legislation planned to better protect dogs and opposition already underway from a state representative who makes a living working with commercial dog breeders.
  • Clergy oppose another piece of gay discrimination legislation

    SB 202, which will take effect Tuesday unless Gov. Asa Hutchinson vetoes it, isn't the only legislation pending that aims at protecting discrimination against gay people. A companion bill, HB 1228, by Rep. Bob Ballinger, has similar intent to protect "conscience" as a pretext for legal discrimination against gay people in matters unrelated to religious practice.
  • Presbytery of Arkansas opposes bills aimed at gay discrimination

    The Presbytery of Arkansas, the governing body for Presbyterian churches in the northern two-thirds of Arkansas, met Saturday at Clarksville and adopted a resolution urging Gov. Asa Hutchinson to veto SB 202, which is aimed at preventing local government from passing anti-discrimination laws to protect gay people. The Presbytery also expressed its opposition to a pending House bill that, in the name of "conscience," would protect those who discriminate against gay people.
  • Hot Springs woman sues; says she was fired for being transgender

    One of the biggest lies of the battle to institutionalize legal discrimination against LGBT people in Arkansas is that protections are unneeded.
  • The hart

    It is hard for a straight person, The Observer included, to imagine what it would be like to be born gay — to be shipwrecked here on this space-going clod, where nearly every textbook, novel, film and television show, nearly every blaring screen or billboard or magazine ad, reinforces the idea that "normal" means "heterosexual."
