2nd Friday Art Night: ASI, Hearne, HAM, Mediums and more

Posted By on Fri, Jan 14, 2011 at 10:20 AM

The Central High School drama department and professional actors will be on hand at Hearne Fine Art, 1001 Wright Ave., for tonight’s 2nd Friday Art Night event portraying the African-American painters whose work is on display there. "Pioneers of the Paint: Masters of the 19th Century" features the work of Robert Scott Duncanson, Edward Mitchell Bannister, Charles Ethan Porter and Henry Ossawa Tanner; visitors will be able to vote for their favorite pieces. Performance times are 5:45 p.m. and 7 p.m.; 2nd Friday Art Night runs from 5 to 8 p.m.

At the Historic Arkansas Museum, 200 E. Third, listen to Mare Carmody and Friends and check out the exhibits, including paintings by Adrienne Cullins, sculpture by Diana B. Ashley and multi-media by Scinthya Edwards, then stroll over to the Arkansas Studies Institute (401 President Clinton Ave.) for nosh from The Food Truck, live entertainment by the Smittle Band (a contestant in our coming Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase) and the "2010 Design Awards Exhibition" by the Arkansas architects and more.

You're not done yet. Down the street from ASI, in the Courtyard Marriott, the ArtGroup Maumelle is showing work and serving hot chocolate. The Copper Grill (300 Third Tower) features work by Theresa Cates, and Christ Episcopal Church (509 Scott) is hosting "Love and Light," a group show of work by 10 artists. Mediums Art Lounge (521 Center St.) has a show of work by Ngozi Okechukwu. Dizzy's (200 River Market Ave.) and Lulav (220 W. 6th St.) are also offering up food, drink and visual sustenance.

Fortunately, there’s a rubber-wheeled trolley running between all the venues so you don’t have to spend much time in the cold. Quite a night.
