ART AMISS
8 p.m., Dickson Street Theater,
Fayetteville. $10.

Art Amiss, the Fayetteville-based arts collective, seems to have an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink philosophy. On its website (artamiss.org), the group promotes Arkansas art of just about every stripe — film, music, painting, poetry, literature, mixed media and digital art. Twice a year, a committee selects choice works from all those different mediums and throws a big party. This year, artists will be on hand to talk about their work (casually, no podium-style speechifying), which will be hung throughout the theater. Local DJs and musicians Luminfire, Carpet Bagger, Shortfuze and Christopher Burn will provide a soundtrack, and outside, in an adjacent parking lot, organizers will set up a projection screen and show about an hour’s worth of Arkansas-related film clips. Derek Jenkins, who debuted his new sports column for the Times this week and will write next week's cover story (he’s multi-talented), curated the film collection. It’ll include clips from “The Hand of Fatima,” the new documentary by Augusta Palmer about her father, the legendary music critic Robert Palmer, and his obsession with a Sufi band in Morocco; the Renaud brothers’ documentary on Central High (see page 77); stop-motion animation and various other independent film projects. The first 200 people at the event get a complimentary chapbook filled with poems and short stories along with a companion CD, featuring the Good Fear, Storm the Castle and more.
