"History is always happening" at Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site
I know of at least five gallery events 5-8 p.m. tonight in Argenta, and there are probably more. Here goes:
Thea Foundation, 401 Main St.: John Sykes Jr., a photojournalist at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, is showing landscape photographs and digital collages tonight, and Arkansas Symphony string quartet will play. The show runs through Jan. 25.
Greg Thompson Fine Art, 429 Main St.: Thompson celebrates his 18th year in the art business gallery with an anniversary show of work by artists in his stable.
Paint Box Gallery, 705 Main St.: "Flowers in Winter," floral art, is the show.
"Ovolution," 707 N. Main St.: This exhibit of work by women artists will benefit Safe Places. Artists in the show include Tanya Hollifield, Chelsye Garrett, Amanda Heinbockel, Hannah May, Mitchell Crisp, Morgan Hill, Bethanie Newsom Steelman, Mia Hall, Deitra Blackwell, Emily Galusha, Snow, Ally Short, Linda Hollaway, Julia Baugh, Heather Harmon Beckwith, Megan Douglas, Kelly Abernathy, Rachel Trusty, Heather Canterbury, Shannon Wallace, Diane Harper, Leslie Romine, Erin Holliday, Breanna Peterson, Christina Gordon and others; they'll give 30 percent of the proceeds from their sales to the shelter. Audrey Kelly and Megan Choate will provide music tonight. The show continues Saturday.
Starving Artist Studio, 108 Fourth St.: New works by John Watson and Doug Gorrell.
The thing about "portable"/"recreate-able" installation art is that it kind of invalidates the whole concept…
Does the work become a "sculptural piece"? (And is the flat wall, the video?)
