An exhibition of photographs by Arkansas Democrat-Gazette photo chief John Sykes Jr. opens today at the Thea Center (aka the Thea Foundation), 401 Main St., North Little Rock. The work includes landscapes and digital collages; a reception is set for the Argenta ArtWalk from 5-8 p.m. Jan. 18. The show runs through Jan. 25.

In a press release, Sykes is quoted as saying that he was inspired to take pictures by the Ozarks: “The natural beauty sparked my interest in photography, and I’ve been attempting to copy the work of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston ever since.” I'm thinking that's a bit tongue-in-cheek.

Sykes has had one-man shows at the Cleburne County Arts Council, Cantrell Gallery and the Arts Center of the Ozarks all in 2004. His resume also includes group exhibitions at Cantrell Gallery and
Gallery 26.

    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.
