  • Work by Gloria McGinn.

The public will be allowed to vote for the Best in Show award at the new Arkansas Sculptors Guild’s first juried show and sale Friday and Saturday, March 31 and April 1, in the east pavilion of the River Market. The show will run from 2 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

The 22 artists in the show include Diana Ashley, Michael Don Fess, Eduardo Gomez, David Green, Kevin Kresse, Ryan Schmidt and John Van Horn of the Greater Little Rock area; Brett Anderson, Bre Harris and David Harris of Royal; Troy Anderson of Siloam Springs; William Clark and Earnest Davidson of Fort Smith; Linda Hall of Sidney; Jim Lewis, Gloria McGinn and John Stephens of Hot Springs; Bryan Massey of Conway; Anne Mitchell of Clinton; Margaret Warren of Shirley, and Elena Petroukhina (for whom no address was available).

The guild, organized last year and currently presided over by Gomez, will charge $3 admission (free for children under 14) to the show, which should test the public’s eagerness to see sculpture.

For more information, go to www.arsculptorsguild.com or call 765-2609 or 501-991-3886.



Former Little Rock artist David Rose, who now lives in Tennessee, sends word that he’ll exhibit a scale model of “Slim’s Diner” from May through October in the exhibit “Counter Culture” at the Copia, The American Center for Wine, Food and the Arts, in Napa, Calif. The show is about the history of diners in America. Rose has created scale models of roadside motels and diners of the 1940s and ’50s as part of his “Lost Highway” series for more than a decade; the series will go on display at the International Museum of Miniature in Lyon, France, from September through March.



Coming up: Dr. Robert Farris Thompson, a Yale professor of African and African-American art history, will give a lecture on Kongo ideographic writing at 6:30 p.m. April 7 at the Arkansas Arts Center. “Kongo Carolina, Kongo New Orleans” will examine the influence of the ancient writing and art on the traditions of African Americans. A reception will be held at 6 p.m.; the talk will be in the lecture hall.

  • Home again

    The plan, formulated months ago, was this: Ellen and I were going to go to Washington for inauguration festivities, then fly out the morning after the balls for Panama City and a long planned cruise to begin with a Panama Canal passage.
  • Who needs courts?

    Not since the John Birch Society's "Impeach Earl Warren" billboards littered Southern roadsides after the Supreme Court's school-integration decision in 1954 has the American judicial system been under such siege, but who would have thought the trifling Arkansas legislature would lead the charge?
  • Bungling

    If the late, great Donald Westlake had written spy thrillers instead of crime capers, they'd read a lot like the opening weeks of the Trump administration.
  • UPDATE: Campus carry bill amended by Senate to require training

    The Senate this morning added an amendment to Rep. Charlie Collins campus carry bill that incorporates the effort denied in committee yesterday to require a 16-hour additional training period before university staff members with concealed carry permits may take the weapons on campus.
