  • BURNS WORK: And Kathy Lindsey's too, at Gallery B.

Little Rock conceptual artist Robert Reep is giving a talk at the Arkansas Arts Center, Fayetteville ceramic artist Beverly Norton Walker is giving a demonstration at the Cox Center, the Historic Arkansas Museum is opening a new exhibit, River Market Artspace is sharing proceeds with the THEA Foundation — and all are air-conditioned. So the 2nd Friday Art Night from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. July 14 is an ought-to-do event, despite the Fahrenheit.

Trolleys will run as usual to all venues, including the Arts Center, where Reep, owner of Chroma Gallery, will talk about his exhibit, “Reep Show: Routines,” at 6:30 p.m. Reep uses mixed media to make satirical commentary on modern life. Roland Gladden and Sean Rock will perform music.

Norton just won the “Author’s Prize” of $100 at the 14th annual Strictly Functional Pottery National competition in Pennsylvania with her “Bamboo Leaf Platter.” Little Rock musician Maria Miller will sing at the Cox Center event. At the HAM, painter Susan Clark, printmaker Hamid Ebrahimifar and sculptor Jennefer Hodges open an exhibit, “Empowered by Three.” Musician Kevin Kerby will perform. River Market Artspace, which is featuring work by its stable of artists, and which has frequently contributed to non-profits from 2nd Friday Art Night sales, this Friday will dedicate a portion of the sales to the THEA Foundation for visual and performing arts scholarships. Hearne Fine Art will be open as well, holding over its “Arkansas Sticks: Scenes from the Past,” works by Arkansas artist Sylvester McKissack.

Christ Church will also be open from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. July 14; it is showing photographs of the church community by members and friends.

Friday night is also Argenta Art Adventures night; Arkansas Art Gallery at Fifth and Main in North Little Rock will show work by Melverue Abraham and Elizabeth Weber. Pennington Studios, AM Architecture and Galaxy, all on Main Street, also will be open 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.



Gallery B at 900 S. Rodney Parham Road, near that road’s intersection with Mississippi, is showing work by Kathy Lindsey and Cathy Burns, known to fans of the Arts Center’s Delta Exhibition and the traveling “Works on Paper” exhibit of the Arkansas Arts Council. The show opened last week at the gallery’s first “First Thursday Shop and Sip” event.

Lindsey is exhibiting digitally manipulated photographs, some painted, some on paper, so that they are not strictly in the realm of photography. Burns is showing abstract paintings, encaustic and mixed media. Their work will be highlighted for two more weeks; both show regularly at the gallery.

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
