I think I've counted 78 artist-painted "home plates" that will be on display at the Thea Center tonight for Argenta ArtWalk, all of which are for sale to benefit the Jim Elder Good Sport Fund. Eight will be auctioned live next Thursday, Sept. 27; the rest are being auctioned online at the link above. ArtWalk at Thea is 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

About the work above:


Elijah Talley is an 11-year-old artist from Little Rock. His interest in art began at Arkansas Children's Hospital when he was 4 years old. Elijah was inspired to learn more about becoming an artist when he met Stephano Sutherlin, who is now his teacher. Elijah is a 6th grader at Pulaski Heights Middle School.


The Jim Elder Good Sport Fund, named for the longtime Arkansas Travelers broadcaster, supports the following organizations:

American Diabetes Summer Camp
Arkansas Sheriffs' Youth Ranches
Easter Seals
Hearts and Hooves
Miracle League
PAL - Police Athletic League-NLR
PARK (Positive Atmosphere Reaches Kids)
RBI (Reviving Baseball in the Innercity at Lamar)
Rose City Boys & Girls Club
The Centers for Youth and Families
The First Tee of Arkansas
THEA Foundation
