Bentonville art tonight

sUgAR Gallery (which I hate typing, by the way) in Bentonville is hosting a reception tonight for John M. Orr, a graduate painting student at the UA, from 6 to 8 p.m. Orr's exhibition, "Marais des Cygnes," went up yesterday and will run through April 15.

The exhibition, as described by the artist in a press release, "is about a fictional wandering car thief and alcoholic named Vernon, the bad guy in a novel written by the artist." The Marais des Cygnes (as in swan marsh) is a river in southeast Kansas and western Missouri and is, I suppose, a setting for the novel.

The exhibit will include paintings, drawings, photographs and installation work. Tonight's reception will have music by Artistik Approach, a hip-hop soul duo.
