  • EGGSACTLY: John Deering's entry in Eggshibition.
On a weekend of several major art shows in Central Arkansas (see Artnotes on page 46), the biggest is Eggshibition XIV — Coming of Age, at Clear Channel Metroplex on Friday, March 11. The benefit auction of plaster eggs decorated by area artists benefits Youth Home Inc. and has moved this year from its long-time home at Robinson Center. The event gets started at 7 p.m. Tickets are $45 and can be bought at the door or reserved by calling 821-5500. Among the 100-plus artists who’ve painted eggs this year are Chris Barrier, Mary Cockrill, John Deering, Matt McLeod, Ms. Otis, Les Waite, Renee Williams (all of Little Rock), Rhonda Hicks of El Dorado, Hank Kaminsky of Fayetteville, Steve James of Heber Springs, Nancy Conley, Lynette Cox and Jason Gamill of North Little Rock, Arden Boyce of Russellville. Celebrities Sela Ward, Robin Williams, Chevy Chase, Jermain Taylor, Harry Connick Jr. and Andy Roddick have also contributed eggs. Hors d’oeuvres and desserts, beer and champagne will get visitors in the buying mood.
