FOLKSY STRINGS AND SUMMER THINGS
7 p.m., Arkansas Community Arts Cooperative. $6-$10.


There will be pickin' and grinnin' and paintin's at Arkansas Community Arts Cooperative's two-day summer folk and music festival. On Friday, local country-tinged singer/songwriter Kevin Kerby headlines the music line-up (too bad he's not showing his art, which leans toward folk art). Also performing are acoustic shouter Jonathan Wilkins and We Versus the Shark, a Pennsylvania folk-rock act. Artists showing paintings, crafts and jewelry include Melverue Abraham, Heather Canterbury, Amy Carnahan, Donna Dunnahoe, Hugh Dunnahoe, Lindsey East, Holly Hall, Lisa Krannichfeld, Erin Lang, Erin Lorenzen, Nikki Paxton, Jennifer Perren, Rhonda Reeves, Levram Renrut, Teresa Smith and Kalari Turner.  The exhibit opens at noon Friday and Saturday. On Saturday, Fayetteville bluegrass band Cletus Got Shot headlines, with local singer/songwriter Mat Mahar opening along with the expansive folk-rock of Justin Carr and Ghost Go. There'll be refreshments, courtesy of New Belgium and Whole Foods.
