Tonight's Third Friday ArtWalk in Argenta offers up a hugely eclectic showing of work, thanks to Greg Thompson's celebration of 15 years in the art biz, a focus on children at the Thea Foundation and a varied selection of media at Ketz Gallery.

Former Hot Springs artist and gallery owner Benini hasn't lived in Arkansas for some time — he's in the Texas hill country now — but his post-pop work will be at Thompson Fine Art, 429 Main St., along with photorealist work by Glenray Tutor, impressionism by Barry Thomas, surrealism by Gary Bolding, geometrical lightscapes by Al Allen and more. Post-post-pop artists Matthew Castellano and Sulac and jeweler Cliff Bernard will have work at Ketz, 705 Main St., as will Sharon Dawn Clark, who hand-paints gourds. Work by patients at Arkansas Children's Hospital is featured at Thea, 401 Main St., and artists-in-residence at Children's Hamid Ebrahimifar and Elizabeth Weber will be on hand to talk about their work with the children. Sharon Franke will give a demonstration of painting technique at Thea, and artists in TheArtists Studios on the second floor of the foundation building will open their studios for the evening.

Third Friday runs 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

    We don't get to post all the jpegs of artwork on exhibit that come into the office, but they have more allure and tell you more about the work than what I can write about them. Hence this slideshow of work from shows opening tonight (Aug. 10) for 2nd Friday Art Night, 5-8 p.m. (see the To Do list for more information), and other openings and shows this weekend and in the days ahead.
