  • Adrienne Taylor's 'Untitled.'

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. Among the many exhibits is a group show of new work by Welcon Ball, Robby Burton, Matt Borengasser, Jan Crummer, Gene Hatfield, Pat Larsen, Heather Mainord, Debbie Murphree, Dianne Noggle, Rebecca Oswalt, Sheila Parsons, Fran Otten, Lois Giorgis, Marvin Crummer, Renee James, Linda Luyet, Clark Vanover, Linda Womack and Beth Horton Zinn at Carmen’s Art and Antiques, 1022 Oak St.
