Three Hot Springs galleries are pitching in again to help the Arkansas Parkinson's Disease Association's annual silent auction during this Friday's Gallery Walk event. Auction items, including works by Jimmy Leach, Margaret Kipp and Angela Core, will hang in American Art Gallery, Gallery Central and Alison Parsons gallery; bids may be placed between 5 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. High bidders will be able to pick up their items at the close of the bidding. All proceeds go to the association.

New exhibits opening Friday include Justus Fine Art's third annual “Tree Show,” artworks inspired by trees by Robin Hazard-Bishop, Steve Griffith, Dolores Justus, Rebecca Thompson and others. “Perhaps a few more trees will be planted and a greater appreciation of their importance will be an even broader result” of the exhibit, Justus said in a press release. Blue Moon Gallery is showing new oils and acrylic paintings by Matt McLeod of Little Rock; his painting, “Capital Traffic,” was on the cover of the Arkansas Artists Calendar issued this year by the Governor's Mansion Association. Studioloud, the new gallery at Spencer's Corner, opens its “Bombs Away Art” exhibit on Friday. All the galleries along Central Avenue will be open late for Gallery Walk.

The Old State House Museum opens a new exhibit Friday: “Sparkle & Twang: Marty Stuart's American Musical Odyssey.” The exhibit, on loan from the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville, includes such jewels as Patsy Cline's makeup case, Johnny Cash's “Man in Black” suit and a sparkling cowboy outfit made for Elton John, along with hand-written lyrics, letters, instruments, photographs and more from Stuart's collection. The show runs through Oct. 5.

On Tuesday, the Art of Architecture series brings Michael Hughes to the Arkansas Arts Center for a talk at 6:30 p.m. Hughes is assistant professor in the University of Arkansas School of Architecture. He'll talk about the evolution of the teaching of architecture.

Collage artist Nancy Dunaway was the juror for this year's Student Competitive Exhibit now in Gallery I of the Fine Arts Center of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Dunaway chose 73 works from 280 entered for the exhibit. Awards were to be announced after press time, April 2.

Visitors to the Arkansas blog will have seen the photographs of Don Nelms, who likes to capture the scenery around his Ozarks home. Now, visitors can see his work at the new Nelms Gallery outside Jasper. The gallery features more than 150 of Nelms' photographs, which he has transferred to canvas. The gallery is four miles west of Jasper, off Highway 74. Two big white rocks mark the entrance. There are hiking trails on the property as well.

    Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union asked Judge Kristine Baker to grant an injunction against four laws passed this year by the General Assembly that would: * Make abortion after 15 weeks riskier by outlawing what the medical profession considers the safest procedure, dilation and evacuation; * Require doctors to inform local police when an abortion performed on a teenager age 14-16 absent any indication of abuse and that police create a record of the teenager's abortion and be provided the fetal remains; * Require abortion providers to ask women seeking an abortion if they know the sex of the fetus, and, if they do, obtain all of their previous obstetrical records to determine if they have a "history of aborting fetuses" of a certain sex, as the lawyer for the state said today in court. * Require notification of a woman's partner — or abuser — that she intends to have an abortion, ostensibly so they can agree on the disposition of the remains of the fetus.
