  • Paulette Palmer: "Gracie and Gomez"

There's so much going on between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. tonight downtown that you'll need to fleet of foot or ask the trolley driver to speed. There are new exhibits in the Butler Center Galleries, the Historic Arkansas Museum, Hearne Fine Art, StudioMain, the Courtyard Marriott and Gallery 221. There will be live music at several venues, including the Bernice Sculpture Garden just down from StudioMain, part of SOMA's PopUp event that runs through Saturday. Food, including barbecue at HAM and s'mores at the Old State House. Drink (including a ginger-apple-pie concoction from Rock Town Distilleries at OSH). Are you psyched yet?

Here's the art part of 2nd Friday Art Night: The Butler Center has gone to its permanent collection for a diverse "From the Vault" show, including historical paintings by Donald Draper, works on paper by visionary artist Arthur Grain, sculpture by Mary Cockrill and more. The ArtGroupMaumelle brings "Art to Remember" to the Marriott, and highlights work by Lori Pilkington Weeks.

Works on paper are at Gallery 221 and Hearne Fine Art has two exhibits: “American Spring: A Cause For Justice,” quilts designed around societal issues, and “And the Band Played On,” work by Kevin Cole.

    The Arkansas Arts Center is about to close out the 2014-15 fiscal year in the black for the fifth year in a row, the Board of Directors heard today, with a current surplus of $171,000 thanks to revenue from a successful Tabriz fund-raiser and careful budgeting.

    Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art has finally gotten around to announcing its acquisition of Jasper Johns' "Flag" (1983, encaustic on silk flag on canvas), earlier reported by Culturgrrl (Lee Rosenbaum) and Eye Candy.
