Kevin Cole, Blue Skies with Purple Dream
  • Kevin Cole, "Blue Skies with Purple Dream"

Guided tours of galleries by people who know whereof they speak is a great way to get to know art and artists, like Kevin Cole. Cole, who uses neckties (and abstracted neckties) in his brilliantly-colored sculptures and prints because of their role in lynchings, has work in the Corcoran in Washington, D.C., the Tampa Museum in Tampa, Fla., the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans and a multitude of other institutions. He is also exhibiting in three galleries in Arkansas: including Hearne Fine Art, where his 25 year retrospective "Straight from the Soul" is up until Jan. 7; the Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas in Pine Bluff, and the Leedell Moorehead-Graham Fine Arts Gallery at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.

Hearne, whose expertise is in African-American art, will give a tour of all three exhibits from 9:30-2:30 p.m. Nov. 28 and 30. The tours wrap up with lunch at RJs’ Diner (on the recommendation of the artist, a Pine Bluff native). The cost is $30 and includes lunch. Call 501-372-6822 to reserve. The Encyclopedia of Arkansas has a good entry on Cole.

  • V.L. Cox's killing machine: 'Cease'

    V.L. Cox has done it again. The artist of the "End Hate" project, an installation of objects she manipulated as a slap-in-the-face wake-up call to the parasitic bigotry that has begun to sap the goodness out of American life, has now created "Cease," human bone assembled in the shape of a rifle. The work is the product of several sleepless nights since the Orlando, Fla., murder of 49 people partying at a gay nightclub.

  • Highway Department: Key parts of new Clarendon bridge installed upside down.

    The future of the old Highway 79 bridge at Clarendon is uncertain, but it's a good thing the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department didn't jump the gun on demolishing it.That's because the new bridge at Clarendon — or at least the western approach, which is elevated over U.S. Fish and Wildlife wetlands — is snakebit.

  • Guest Mix: Christopher Farris Terry (C.T.)

    I try to listen to music constantly. I don't listen to as much creepingly heavy metal as one would think, and when I do it's an entire album at a time instead of mixed up. Any mixtape I make usually has Paige Anderson and the Fearless Kin on it. I also LOVE soft rock hits. I have entire comps put together of this stuff, I can't make a comp without some.
