South on Main leads to V.L. Cox bridge

V.L. Cox's painting "River Bridge" — and recreated car tailgate that can be attached — was finally unveiled last night at South on Main, the restaurant and music venue at 1304 Main St. Unveiling had been scheduled a couple of weeks ago, but competing events and five inches of ice held things up a bit. (Yes, should have posted this yesterday, but spot news got in the way. Apologies.)

"River Bridge" is an 8-foot-by-8-foot painting of a 1909 iron truss bridge once located in Hot Spring County, near where Cox grew up. The Ford label is from an old truck; the rest of the truck is wood. Check it out tonight when you go see the John Bush Group perform jazz at 7:30 p.m., part of Local Live series.

  • 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.
