The exhibition "Reflections on Line & Mass: Paintings & Sculpture by Robyn Horn" opens tonight (Friday, Jan. 9) at the Butler Center Galleries (401 President Clinton) with a 2nd Friday Art Night reception from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. I'd say Horn's abstract work on paper and canvas, inspired by her woodwork and its play with texture, form and movement, is some of the strongest work being done in Arkansas today. The show runs through April 24.

Blues artist Blind Boy White will perform in the gallery tonight, and the retail space will give special focus to bead artist Debby Gwaltney. 

Also opening tonight: The Arkansas Capital Corp. Group gallery (200 River Market, Suite 400) is showing paintings by Elizabeth Weber, Dan Thornhill and Ashley Saer in a show called "Life by Design." Another threesome, Justin Bryant, Lilia Hernandez and Logan Hunter, are showing their work at the Cox Creative Center (120 River Market Ave.)

Kevin Kerby is providing the tunes tonight at the Historic Arkansas Museum (200 E. Third), where “this is the garden; colors come and go,” paintings, sculpture and mixed media by Rachel Trusty, and “Under Pressure: The Arkansas Society of Printmakers Exhibition" continue. 

The Old State House Museum (300 W. Markham) is showing the film "End of the Line," with Kevin Bacon, Mary Steenburgen and Levon Helm, at 6 p.m.; KLRE/KUAR's Ben Fry introduces and will lead a discussion after the screening. 

Off the beaten 2nd Friday track but part of the fun is the exhibition of award-winning architectural designs at StudioMAIN (1423 Main St.) 

As always, the rubber-wheeled River Market trolley will provide transportation between galleries.

  • Finally, a memorial to the 21 boys who were burned to death at Wrightsville in '59

    It has been 59 years since 21 teen-aged boys incarcerated at the so-called Negro Boys Industrial School were burned to death in their locked dormitory. The Times wrote about the event in 2008, after the brother and mother of one of the boys approached the Times looking for someone to remember the event, and headlined the story "Stirring the Ashes." But on Saturday, a monument to the boys was placed at Haven of Rest Cemetery, where 14 of the boys were buried.

  • Arkansas Repertory Theatre to suspend operations immediately

    “The inability to reach its projected goals for charitable giving and ticket sales, and the change in the theatre landscape in Little Rock have created a perfect financial storm for The Rep,” Board Chair Brian Bush said. “The Rep’s ticket sales have been on a downhill slope for several years. Our community is on the verge of losing an amazing arts organization and tremendous asset to our city. Closing The Rep will have a devastating impact on the redevelopment of Main Street and the creative corridor.”
