Tonight from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. is the ACANSA Arts Festival  Gallery Hop to The Art Group Gallery, Cantrell Gallery, Greg Thompson Fine Art, Hearne Fine Art Gallery, M2 Gallery, Gallery 221, L & L Beck Art Gallery, Local Colour Gallery, Matt McLeod Fine Art, Stephano's Fine Art Gallery, The Edge Gallery, The Hot Springs Art Group, Argenta Gallery and Boswell Mourot Fine Art. That'll have you hopping all over town, but you can also take a trolley (park at the Arts Center and catch it there if you like) between venues, the better to enjoy your libations. Tickets are $20. Highlights, on a circuit from North Little Rock to downtown Little Rock to midtown to West Little Rock:

* The "Best of the South" show at Greg Thompson Fine Art, 428 Main St. The annual exhibition of top Arkansas and regional artists, including William Dunlap, Ed Rice (see above), Glennray Tutor, Pinkney Herbert, Donald Roller Wilson and Robyn Horn, opens tonight.
