AT THE AAC: Self-portrait Rivera and other Latin American works.
  • AT THE AAC: Self-portrait Rivera and other Latin American works.

July is here, and so is Diego Rivera.

On Friday, July 6, the Arkansas Arts Center opens an exhibit of work by Latin American artists in the collection of the Inter-American Development Bank. The collection includes the work of the famed artist and muralist Rivera, surrealist Wifredo Lam of Cuba, who's shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Chilean artist Roberto Sebastian Matta, who will be familiar to those who took in the Historic Arkansas Museum's “Latin American Graphics” exhibition in 2004.

Also opening Friday at the Arts Center: “Jan Matulka, Modern Lines,” modernist works on paper by the Czech immigrant (1890-1972) who taught at the Arts Student League in New York. The exhibit was organized by the McCormick Gallery in Chicago and the artist's estate.

In Hot Springs, an exhibit of new paintings by Darrell Loy Scott goes up Friday, July 6, at Taylor's Contemporanea, 204 Exchange St. Scott works in a primitive style in high-gloss paint. The artist will be at the gallery Friday for the city's monthly Gallery Walk from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Coming up next week:

MEDIUMS at 3000 Kavanaugh Blvd. is hosting a reception for printmaker George Frederick Nash from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, July 12. 2nd Friday Art Night on July 13 brings “Notes from the Underclass: The Carnival Series,” paintings by Mitchell Crisp and Joseph Santoro, to the Cox Creative Center. Art Night runs 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Arts Center will offer tours of the Latin American show that evening, Hearne Fine Art will host a reception for abstract painter Dianne Smith (she'll give a talk at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 14), and River Market Artspace gallery will host a “proceeds night” to benefit the Friends of the Old Mill. The Historic Arkansas Museum and Ten Thousand Villages will also be open, and the Darragh Center will show the film “I Shot Andy Warhol,” the story of the radical feminist Valerie Solanas, who shot Warhol (not fatally) after being rejected by him and his friends.

The rubber-wheeled trolleys will transport gallery goers, and this month's celebrity trolley rider is Bobby Roberts, head of the Central Arkansas Library System.

    Chad Morris' clear and present hurdle last week, upon being anointed as the Arkansas Razorbacks' sixth permanent head football coach in a quarter-century of occupancy in the Southeastern Conference, was to convince grumbling, listless fans that his credentials were something greater than the seemingly pedestrian 14-22 record in three seasons as the lead pony for the long-besieged SMU program.
