Argenta ArtWalk. A special exhibit of work by veterans. A five-year anniversary celebration. The opening of a new permanent exhibit at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute. An exhibit featuring 170 photographs by 19 photographers. All this weekend. Maybe this will help you plan:

Argenta ArtWalk, March 16: The third Friday monthly art stroll through downtown North Little Rock has a number of shows to see, starting at 5, 5:30 and 6 p.m. Start at 5 p.m. at three new AA venues: Blake's Furniture (Peggy Roberson), Chop Salon (Steve Spencer) and Argenta Healing Arts (Erin Lorenzen). Also starting at 5 p.m.: Karen Garner's exhibition of watercolors, many of African animals, at Ketz Gallery. At 5:30 p.m., the Thea Foundation is hosting Arkansas League of Artists members Melanie Johnston (Japanese woodblock), John Woodridge (oil paintings), Mary Ann Stafford (pastel) and Kateri Joe (mixed media), who'll show their work and demonstrate technique, and the Thea Visual Arts Scholarship Winners are exhibiting as well. The Pickoids will provide music. At 6 p.m., Greg Thompson Fine Art opens an exhibition of 40 vintage photographs by the celebrated misanthrope Mike Disfarmer, in a show and sale curated by Jennifer Carman.

M2 Gallery's "Five-Year Anniversary Show," March 16: Across town, at 11525 Cantrell in the Pleasant Ridge Shopping Center, M2 celebrates from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday with an exhibit featuring etchings by noted Arkansas printmaker Evan Lindquist of Jonesboro back to 1964, new figure studies by Kentucky artist Jeaneen Barnhart and California artist Dan Holland and encaustic by Little Rock artist Cathy Burns.

"Blue-Eyed Knocker Photo Club Presents," March 17: An exhibition of photographs, most created in the darkroom, by 19 current and former students of Little Rock photographer Rita Henry opens with a reception from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday at Gallery 26, 2601 Kavanaugh Blvd.

"From Cardboard to Canvas," March 17: The Little Rock VA Medical Center Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) day center's Creative Expressions program, directed by Stephanie Goins, gives a creative outlet to veterans struggling with grief and other post-service stresses. Starving Artist Cafe, 411 Main St., North Little Rock, is featuring artwork by the veterans and portraits of them through March; reception is 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday night.

WINTHROP ROCKEFELLER INSTITUTE, March 17: It's not in Little Rock, but lots of folks from LR will head to Petit Jean Mountain Saturday afternoon for the unveiling of a new permanent exhibit at the institute, "270: Lt. Gov. Winthrop P. Rockefeller, A Lifetime of Service." (The 270 refers to the lieutenant governor's office number at the State Capitol.) Remarks by several dignitaries, including Lisenne Rockefeller, widow of the late lieutenant governor, will open the exhibit at 2 p.m.; a reception will follow.

Heights neighborhood merchants are helping raise funds for the Little Rock Zoo on Thursday night, posting docents and animals at "Zoo Depots" along Kavanaugh Boulevard from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Stephano's celebrates "Zoo Break" with the "March of the Penguins" art and animals from Out of the Woods Rescue.

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art curator Kevin Murphy has a busy week: He'll give a lecture on American Art at 5:45 p.m. Thursday, March 15, at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville's Fine Arts Center, room 213. Then on March 16, he'll join Crystal Bridges Museum's Eleven restaurant director Case Dighero in a museum event for members and guests ($30) that will pair paintings with beverages. You must be 21 or older to attend; individual memberships at the museum are $55 a year ($75 for a family of two).
