Another Argenta ArtWalk event: Laman Library's Argenta branch will host potter Ian Park from 5-8 p.m. Friday. Park will hand-build pots for the demonstration.

Park supports his art habit by working at Rosalia's Bakery. From his blog:

After graduation, it was quickly apparent that I needed to get a job. Not just any job, but something I was skilled at. After a couple of interviews I decided to go back into the baking world, making cakes, cookies, tarts, etc... I now work at Rosalia's Family Bakery and must say that this is one of the best jobs I have ever had. Rosalia and her husband are very respectful, nice, caring, and generous. I have finally discovered what it feels like to be treated like a human being in a job. It's so nice, it almost makes me not want to be a teacher. I work with people from many different countries ranging from Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Honduras, Moldova, and Mexico. The language barrier is difficult sometimes but I feel my Spanish skills strengthening. Now, I am debating on not teaching for a year and waiting until Teach for America next year. I want to also work on finding a place to create ceramic work while working on printmaking in my very own studio apartment I will be moving into on July 1st. Very excited about moving out! Needing to spread my wings.

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
