Jack Pearadin and Doug Nelsen found a 1.73-carat diamond after nearly a year of searching the park's field.
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.
