Markham St. (reception starts at 6 p.m.)

Paintings of Arkansas in the 1950s by Glenda McCune and “Arkansas Made: County by County” will be the 2nd Friday draw to the Historic Arkansas Museum, 200 E. Third St., which will also feature live music by Phil G. and Lori Marie and beer from Core Brewing Co.
