  • IN SANTA FE: Arkansas photographer Deborah Warren shows her work at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe.

The press releases have been rolling in for out-of-state exhibits of work by Little Rock artists. In order of their receipt, they are:

David Bailin, whose large-scale works in charcoal on paper are narrative, sometimes based on parables, is showing “Confessions of a Conformist: New Drawings” at the Koplin Del Rio gallery in Culver City, Calif., a suburb of Los Angeles. The announcement comes with a reproduction of a coffee-stained list in which a number of “confessions” are crossed out, including “1. I admit that I like enclosed places without natural light.” Bailin's show, which runs through July 14, followed a show by another Arkansas artist: Aj Smith, whose exhibit “Faces: New Drawings” ran April 21 to May 26 at Koplin.

Photographer Deborah Warren's exhibit, “Blue Root: Images of Cuba,” 10 hand-tinted, fiber-based photos, at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe, is in conjunction with a major show of contemporary Cuban art. Warren got a special license from the federal government to travel to UNESCO sites in Cuba to photograph classical views of historic architecture. The show runs through August.

Sammy Peters is showing large abstract work in a show called “Silent Metronome” at LewAllen Contemporary Gallery in Santa Fe. The exhibit invitation says, “His rootedness in Middle America finds expression in his work's strong sense of organic authenticity,” which might mean that the work is influenced by his surroundings here rather than deriving from the work of other abstract artists. At any rate, Peters calls his work “architectonic” rather than abstract; his shapes, line and color interact in a way that suggests three-dimensional space.

n Crystal Bridges at the Massey, exhibit spaces in the old Massey Hotel off the square in Bentonville that will keep the public informed about progress on Alice Walton's museum of American art, debuts Saturday at Bentonville's Spring Art Walk. The space will feature changing exhibits related to American art and the museum while Bentonville awaits the museum's opening in 2009.

Spring Art Walk events include exhibits on the square by more than 45 artists, a Kids' Art Park, a participatory art project that is also a benefit for Downtown Bentonville Inc. and music by American Idol contestant Patrick Hall and others. Art Walk will run from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

n An exhibit of woodworking faculty and students at the Arkansas Arts Center Museum School and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Applied Design Department is on exhibit at the Cox Creative Center, 120 Commerce St.

The show is the “third semi-annual” exhibit of the woodworking schools. It runs through Aug. 25.
