Stallings at ArtWalk 

And Gallery 26 celebrates 15 years.

This weeks' Third Friday Argenta ArtWalk on Main Street in North Little Rock features new exhibits, including one by previous Delta Exhibition winner Kendall Stallings; artist demonstrations at three venues, and concerts at the Thea Foundation.

Greg Thompson Fine Art, 429 Main St., is hosting a one-man show of paintings by Stallings, “Isolated Encounters.” Stallings, a native of Russellville who lives in Dallas, is known for his work that places men in suits (or the manmade) in nature; he won the Grand Award in the 2008 Delta Exhibition. The show runs through May 15.

Ketz Gallery, at 705 Main, will feature “Susan Harris: Southern Perception,” abstract work said to have a twist of New Orleans. The Little Rock painter's show will be up through April 15.

Bead artists Sage Holland, Beau Anderson and Vanessa Bunet (headed to Eurekan Art Studio in Eureka Springs on Saturday) will demonstrate lampworking at Argenta Bead, 703 Main St. Painter Amy Hill-Imler will demonstrate at the Laman Public Library's Argenta branch at 506 Main, and impressionist Doug Norton will demonstrate at Starving Artist Cafe, 411 Main. Thea's concert will feature student winners of its performing arts scholarships at the foundation, 401 Main, in performances at 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Also part of the party: the “Gathering of Artists” group show, which will be either in tents or at the First Presbyterian Church at 4th and Maple (undecided by press time), and work by Elena Petroukhina, John Woodridge and Rhonda Reeves at the Baker House Bed and Breakfast. ArtWalk runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.


Tonight (March 18), Stephano's Fine Art Gallery, 5501 Kavanaugh Blvd., opens a sneak preview of artists' eggs to be featured in the annual Youth Home fund-raiser “Eggshibition” coming up next week. The gallery will be open from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. for “Kavanaugh in the Heights,” and will have music by “Overcoming Murphy” (Anna Squire and Adam Cleave). The gallery is also featuring paintings by new gallery artists Matthew Gore, Jay Lane and Kevin Bell. Stephano's new hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Call 563-4218 for more information.


Gallery 26 has been in business for 15 years, and is celebrating that fact with a reception from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, March 20. On exhibit is work by Steven Wise, Kevin Kresse, Jeff Waddle and Emily Galusha. There will be cake, hors d'oeuvres, beverages, live music and a drawing for a door prize.
Little Rock painter and sculptor Kresse and Rogers painter Wise were among the gallery's first artists after Renee Williams and Steve Ross opened it in February 1995. The gallery now has 70 artists, including Addy-winner and painter Galusha and sculptor and painter Waddle. Daniel Broening is now Williams' partner in the business.
Gallery 26 is at 2601 Kavanaugh Blvd. See more work by the exhibiting artists at gallery26.com. Call 664-8996 for more information.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
