I am looking forward to the "Explore Arkansas" exhibition of Instagram photos at Mugs Cafe, 515 Main St. in Argenta, thanks to pix forwarded to me by Mugs gallery director Diane Harper and Pastor Tommy Wallace, who created the @ArkMoPhs account on Instagram (find the group on Facebook here). The smart phone has turned us all into photographers, so it's a medium we can all relate to, and comparing what's on your phone to what the @ArkMoPhs folks have hung on the walls at Mugs should be great fun. Mugs will be open after hours (5-8 p.m.) Friday for Argenta ArtWalk if you are headed that way. "Explore Arkansas" runs through July 15. 

The show was a competition; jurors were Josh St. Germain, a "mobile photographer" from Massachusetts; Arkansas photographer Kelly Shipp; Shotz photo-sharing founder Mitchell Hughes, and artist David O'Brien

It's been a great year for the Newport native, who stole the show in "Last Vegas' (presumably? I somehow missed "Last Vegas") and was pretty menacing in her three episodes of the most recent season of "Justified."

    North Carolina's ABC affiliate reports on hundreds of thousands of mailers with false information about voter registration sent by Americans for Prosperity, the right-wing advocacy group backed by the Koch brothers. The official-looking mailers gave the wrong deadline for voter registration and told people to sign up with the wrong state agency. The mailers also gave the wrong office for questions regarding voter registration, the wrong zip code for turning in a voter registration form, and inaccurate information about how people would be notified of their precinct.

Pryor was joined by his mother, the former first lady of Arkansas Barbara Pryor, at this morning's event at the Fresco Cafe in Fayetteville. Events will be held across the state to mobilize women in support of Pryor to vote.
