Batter up, for Jim Elder fund

Posted By on Fri, Oct 14, 2011 at 11:12 AM

  • Crites' "Home Run"

The online auction of home-plate shaped art to benefit the Jim Elder Good Sport Fund has begun! Go to the Jim Elder Home Plate Heroes website to bid.

The online bidding runs until Oct. 27. At 6 p.m., live bidding will begin on plates at the Thea Foundation at 401 Main St. in North Little Rock, which has several plates in its window right now. Artists who've participated include Todd Crites (see above), Sarah Mattingly, Stephano, John Wooldridge and "Weekly," the creator of "Fast Ball Strikes," in which twine indicates strike paths — everything inside the plate.

The Home Plate Heroes fund honors the late Jim Elder, KARN sportscaster known as the Voice of the Travelers and supports a number of organizations for children, including the Arkansas Sheriffs' Youth Ranches, RBI (Reviving Baseballi n the Inner City) at Lamar Porter Field, First Tee and other non-profits.

Most of the plates have a baseball theme or are visual puns (see "Poppy Flies"). Check them out.

  • A miscellany of art: Aug. 10-16

    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.
