2nd Fri. is on: Coppola, Gutierrez, Nelson, Nobel, Palmer and more

Posted By on Fri, Feb 11, 2011 at 11:40 AM

Betting that folks are sick of being at home and will brave a little slush to get out and see art, the Historic Arkansas Museum, the Arkansas Studies Institute, Hearne Fine Art, Christ Church, the Courtyard by Marriott and Mediums Art Lounge will be open from 5-8 p.m. tonight.

Here's the lowdown:

HAM is opening two shows: “Signs and Signals: Claire Coppola, Michael Davis Gutierrez and Marilyn Nelson,” mixed media, and “Deluxe Graffiti,” paintings by Liz Nobel. The Mockingbird Hillbilly Band will perform in the atrium and there will be libations.
ARKANSAS STUDIES INSTITUTE: “Anticipating the Future — Contemporary American Indian Art,” works from the collection of Dr. J.W. Wiggins. Wiggins, a retired UALR professor whose collection is housed at the Sequoyah Research Center, will give a talk about the art at 6 p.m.
HEARNE FINE ART: Stained glass by Charly Palmer will be featured in the Pyramid Books entry to the gallery; works by the 19th century masters Robert Scott Duncanson, Edward Mitchell Bannister, Charles Ethan Porter and Henry Ossawa Tanner are in the galleries.
CHRIST CHURCH: Needlepoint, oils, watercolors and mixed media by Kathy Thompson.
COURTYARD by MARIOTT: Matt Coburn will give a painting demonstration;
MEDIUMS ART LOUNGE: Angela Green is the featured artist.

Participating restaurants include Dizzy's, the Copper Grill and Lulav; Lulav features steel art furniture by Rob Wellborn.

As always, you can leave the driving to the rubber wheeled trolleys that transport 2nd Fri. art lovers to the various venues.
