It's the third Friday of March, so Argenta Artwalk is blowing in with three new exhibitions and a painting demonstration at venues in downtown North Little Rock, 5-8 p.m.

That demonstration you'll find at Barry Thomas' studio at 711 Main St., where the impressionist will be working on a large canvas and "jamming out to music." Next door, at 703 Main St., Argenta Bead hosts a trunk show of Janu Gems, which continues on Saturday, the bead store's last day of operation in Argenta. (It reopens March 24 at 1608 Main St. in SoMa, but will keep the Argenta name.)

At Mugs Cafe, 515 Main St., see "Outside the Lines," graphic work by Arkansas Democrat-Gazette artists Nikki Dawes, Kirk Montgomery, Dusty Higgins and Ron Wolfe. Laman Library's Argenta branch, 420 Main St., hosts "Delta in Blue," an exhibition by award-winning photographer Beverly Buys, which she produced with the assistance of a Henderson State University Ellis College Margin of Excellence grants.

Greg Thompson Fine Art, 429 Main St., continues its "22nd Anniversary Show" of works by fine regional and state artists, such as Carroll Cloar, William Dunlap, Henri Linton and Robyn Horn. North Little Rock arts promoter John Gaudin steps out with his own work in the show "Dancers" at Argenta Gallery, 413 Main St.; a portion of proceeds will go to the Christen Pitts dance program at North Little Rock High School.

Core Brewing, 411 Main St., opens a fighting-themed exhibition of work by 14 members of the Latino Project, "Downtown Throwdown."

Other ArtWalk venues include StudioMAIN, Pennington Studio/Claytime Pottery and the House of Art.
