Peden at Ketz, kids at Thea, baskets at Laman

Posted By on Fri, May 18, 2012 at 9:52 AM

Tonight's the night for the monthly Argenta ArtWalk in downtown NLR and our online calendar lists all the exhibits going on along Main Street from 5-8 p.m.; note the new venues featuring one-night exhibits. Some gallery highlights:

Cheri Peden is showing her newest paintings, rural landscapes, some on ceiling tins, in an exhibit called "A Worn Path: Southern Reflections" at Ketz Gallery, 705 Main St. In a press release, Peden says, "My passion for old family stories, southern history and painting is reflected in my current show, along with the influences of Acadian architecture, vegetable gardens, and New Orleans.” Ketz has work by other known artists as well and will serve up "light refreshments" tonight.

The King Elementary School exhibition of work by third and fourth graders continues at the Thea Foundation and tonight's reception will feature other young artists: the King Elementary jazz band and orchestra. The artists will be at the reception to talk to visitors about their works. Artist Nathan Archie says his drawing (below) was inspired by the work of Jacob Lawrence.


Demonstrating his craft at the Argenta Branch of the Laman Library will be shaker box maker Roger Bartz; his wife, artist Martha Bartz, will also be there.


Next item up: "Best of the South" at Greg Thompson Fine Art.
