More than 30 artists in booths along three blocks of North Little Rock's Main Street, open only to pedestrian traffic. Live music. Artists demonstrating techniques. Hands-on art activities, including printmaking and caricatures. A collaborative paint-by-number project for kids and adults. Local businesses catering to the crowds.

Yes, Argenta will come alive Saturday when the 3rd annual THEA Arts Festival occupies three blocks of downtown North Little Rock. The festival runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; the trolley will run in case you want to hop over to the Literary Festival on the south side of the river for a minute.

  • A miscellany of art: Aug. 10-16

    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.
