It's the wrong season to think about fall, unless you love to look at paintings by Mark Blaney, as I do. Blaney's painting above is at Greg Thompson Fine Art (429 Main St., NLR), which is open from 5-8 p.m. tonight (March 15) for Argenta's Third Friday Art Walk. Thompson's exhibition is the annual "Spring Show" and includes work by Donald Roller Wilson, Wolf Kahn, Edward Rice and others.

Matthew Lopas, the Hendrix College art professor known for his fish-eye-lens paintings, has a show at the Argenta Branch of the Laman Library (420 Main St.), "The Expanding Vision of Matthew Lopas." The Argenta Art Walk reception will also feature music by Ben "Swamp Donkey" Brenner and a demonstration of sketching by self-taught artist Scarlet Sims.

The Innovation Hub (201 E. Broadway) says it's celebrating Women's History Month, Mardi Gras and St. Patrick's Day, which sounds like quite a party: There you can print T-shirts and see work by printmaker Danielle Napolitano.

Impressionist Barry Thomas is opening his studio (711 Main St.) for Art Walk; Denise Luft will be painting and showing her work.

The Latino Art Project is holding a one-day art auction, "Sin Fronteras," from 5-8 p.m. tonight to benefit the Hispanic outreach nonprofit Seis Puentes at Argenta Gallery (413 Main St.). Contributing artists include Lourdes Valverde, Charles Degollado, Inez Valdés, Luis Atilano, Isaac Helguera, Luis Saldaña, Sabrina Zarco, Juan Barragán, Elías Robledo and Lisandra di Liberto.
