Patterson and Barnes Sister Rosetta Tharpe
  • Patterson and Barnes' "Sister Rosetta Tharpe"

Paintings of Arkansas musicians commissioned by the Old State House Museum for its 2003 exhibition "Our Own Sweet Sounds II" are on display in the central hallway of the museum, which will be open tonight from 5-8 p.m. for 2nd Friday Art Night.

Gary Patterson and Marion Barnes, Florida-based collaborative artists, used acrylic, watercolor, India ink and collage to create the paintings of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Johnny Cash, Louis Jordan, Lucinda Williams and Al Green that are on display.

There will be live music as well tonight at this relatively new addition to the 2nd Friday lineup.

    If you've been to Bentonville, you've probably seen Jason Jones' mural of a big blue octopus with bicyclists riding one of tentacle and tentacle another waving Sam Walton's truck around. Or, in Fayetteville, Jones' "Fresh Air" on Center Street. The murals that have transformed the historic downtowns in Northwest Arkansas have made us Little Rock lovers of outsized-urban-mural lovers green with envy.
