We're all set: On Nov. 8, the Arkansas Times' Art Bus will head out at 7 a.m. sharp to Fayetteville and then Bentonville for a full day's enjoyment of contemporary art, plus lunch and dinner, for only $109 per.

And I do mean full day. First stop: George Dombek's studio gallery in Goshen, outside Fayetteville, a beautiful spot where we'll see watercolors by Dombek and sculpture by Robyn Horn and, if we get lucky with the weather, enjoy our box lunch on the grounds.

Then it's off to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, where we'll see special exhibit "State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now," more than 200 works by 102 contemporary artists from all over the country selected for the show by CBM President Don Bacigalupi and curator Chad Alligood. Read a couple of previous Eye Candy posts about the show here and here for starters. There is, of course, Crystal Bridges' permanent collection to see as well.

Then, try leave a bit of time to go to 21c Hotel off the Bentonville

 square (a quick walk from the museum) to see its exhibit, "Dis-semblance: Projecting and Perceiving Identity," which the Huffington Post said offers a "not always comfortable reflection on ... race, class and gender" and which got rave reviews from Little Rock artist Delita Pinchback Martin, who was at Crystal Bridges last weekend to talk about her work in "State of the Art" and give a printmaking workshop.

Dinner will be at Arsaga's Depot in Fayetteville (another opportunity to see art: landscapes by Adam Campbell), and we'll be back in town by 10 p.m. To reserve a seat, call 375-2985 and ask for Kelly.

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
