Multimedia works by Suzi Dennis ("sUZI mADE") continue this August at Blue Moon Gallery, which hosts its Gallery Walk reception Friday, Aug. 3, from 5-9 p.m., under the first full moon in August. The second full moon comes Aug. 30 so it is — you guessed it — a Blue Moon!

Other participating galleries: Alison Parsons Gallery, 802 Central, which is featuring Gabrielle Ray's installation "Left" and large-scale oils, and Artchurch Studio, 301 Whittington Ave, which has works by Bethannie Newsom Steelman, Erin Holliday, Terri Taylor, Alex Oberste and Robynn and Morgan Sheets, age 2.

It's Gallery Walk night in Hot Springs tonight from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. I posted yesterday about "sUZI mADE" at Blue Moon Gallery. Here's what else is on tap: Alison Parsons Gallery (802 Central Ave.) is showing "Left," large-scale oil sketches, and an installation by Gabrielle Ray. Artchurch Studio (301 Whittington) is showing Buzz Blur, Jeri Hilis, Nichole Briscoe, Marc Menefee, Dan Grissom, Susan Julie Gonzales, Terri Taylor, Michael Bradley, Christopher Baber, John W. Williams and Alex Oberste and will also feature a dance performance by Miss Andie's Dancers and music by Laura Lee Williard. Gallery Central (800 Central) is showing work by its gallery artists, including new artists Sandy Newberg and Amy Hill-Imler. Artist's Workshop Gallery features paintings by Terry Odell and Joanne Kunath. Other galleries on and off Central include Justus Fine Art, Taylor's Contemporanea and the American Art Gallery.
Taylor's Contemporanea, 204 Exchange St., is hosting an exhibit of photorealist paintings by Louisiana artist Daniel Mark Cassity. Cassity, who works in oil on panel, will show 20 still lifes that combine disparate objects — a shell, a toy pig, a meat cleaver — "to evoke humor" or tell a story. Gallery walk reception is 6-9 p.m. tonight.
The work begs to be compared with the still lifes of Daniel Massad on exhibit at the Arkansas Arts Center. The skill with which Massad's pastels are rendered — down to the slight freckles on the pears, the glazes on the bowls — is nearly incomprehensible.
New paintings by Little Rock artist Rebecca Thompson are featured in May at Justus Fine Art Gallery, 827 Central Ave., along with work by gallery members Donnie Copeland, Steve Griffith, Vivian Noe-Griffith, Hugh Dunnahoe, Robyn Horn and Dolores Justus.
The gallery will be open 5-9 p.m. tonight for the monthly Gallery Walk, as will other galleries on an off Central Ave.
Blue Moon Gallery in Hot Springs is celebrating its 15th year in business on May 4 with a recognition of artists who have been with the gallery since 1997: Suzi Dennis of Hot Springs, H. James Hoff of New York and Dallas; Steve Lawnick of Hot Springs; David Rackley of Russellville, Jeanne Teague of Louisiana and Bart Soutendijk of Texas. They'll have new work at the gallery throughout the month of may and some will attend the Gallery Walk reception from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and throughout the month of May.
In honor of its anniversary, the gallery is giving a 15 percent discount on all art sales during May.
Work by Rene Hein and Jennifer Fay Libby is being featured tonight at Justus Fine Art, 827A Central Ave., Hot Springs, where galleries will be open 5 to 9 p.m. for the monthly gallery walk.
Also on tap at the Gallery Walk: sumi e paintings by Ann Shedelbower at Blue Moon Gallery, 718 Central; equine paintings by Maria Kline at Gallery Central, 800 Central; and the "Hot Springs Regional Competition" at the Fine Arts Center, 626 Central Ave.
The goal is not simply to reproduce the appearance of the subject, but to capture its soul. To paint a horse, the ink wash painting artist must understand its temperament better than its muscles and bones. To paint a flower, there is no need to perfectly match its petals and colors, but it is essential to convey its liveliness and fragrance. East Asian ink wash painting may be regarded as an earliest form of expressionistic art that captures the unseen.
Sumi-e paintings by Ann Shedelbower should give you the picture tonight at Blue Moon Fine Art, 718 Central Ave., Hot Springs. The gallery will be open after hours for Gallery Walk, 5-9 p.m.; the artist will be there and will display some of the brushes and tools she uses in her work.
