Rita Henry, Adrienne Taylor and Nancy Nolan, old friends and well-known Little Rock photographers, up offer their work for comparison in “3 Women/3 Ways” at Gallery 26, 2601 Kavanaugh. The show opens with a reception from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, May 20, with music by the Karismatics and pre-teen violinist Rebecca Berry.

Henry, who teaches at the Arkansas Arts Center, will exhibit 35 Polaroid prints, emulsion lifts and transfers. Taylor, who, a press release notes, sold her blood plasma to buy her first camera, is a traditionalist who makes her own silver gelatin prints. Nolan is a commercial photographer; her work in the show is of children.

Assemblage artist Anita Davis will also show work at Gallery 26. The works will stay on exhibit until July 14.

The Karismatics includes Jim Hathaway and Mike Prince. Rebecca will open the show with a solo performance.

The city of Conway jumps on the after-hours gallery-going bandwagon on Thursday, May 18, when it launches its first Artwalk, set from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at downtown businesses and restaurants.

  • Executionpalooza

    Appearances count. I was struck by a single sentence over the weekend in a full page of coverage in The New York Times devoted to the killing spree in Arkansas, beginning with a front-page account of the recent flurry of legal filings on pending executions and continuing inside with an interview with Damien Echols, the former death row inmate.
  • Art bull

    "God, I hate art," my late friend The Doctor used to say.
  • Not justice

    The strongest, most enduring calls for the death penalty come from those who feel deeply the moral righteousness of "eye-for-an-eye" justice, or retribution. From the depths of pain and the heights of moral offense comes the cry, "The suffering you cause is the suffering you shall receive!" From the true moral insight that punishment should fit the crime, cool logic concludes, "Killers should be killed." Yet I say: retribution yes; death penalty no.
  • Judge Griffen writes about morality, Christian values and executions

  • The Ledell Lee execution thread

    Arkansas Times contributor Jacob Rosenberg is at the Cummins Unit in Grady filing dispatches tonight in advance of the expected execution of Ledell Lee, who was sentenced to death for the Feb. 9, 1993, murder of Debra Reese, 26, who was beaten to death in the bedroom of her home in Jacksonville.
