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.

  • LIVE LIFE CHILL NOT DEAD DONE GONE

    Contrary to rumor, Live Life Chill, the bar/restaurant in the erstwhile Revolution Taco and Tequila Lounge space at the corner of Cantrell and President Clinton Avenue, is not closed. Service manager Lindsey McFadin called the Times this afternoon to say a rumor the bar had closed was killing business; by 3 p.m., no one had been in. The Times, too, had heard the rumor from a number of sources. What has changed, McFadin said, is that the bar is now only open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
