  • 'URBAN LEGENDS': Matt Haney work at Cantrell Gallery.
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette cartoonist John Deering and former colleague Matt Haney will open “Urban Legends,” a theme show featuring paintings that place fantasy figures in everyday environments, at Cantrell Gallery on Friday, Aug. 5. A reception from 6-8 p.m. for the artists is set that evening. Haney, also a cartoonist and illustrator, has a degree in fine art from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Deering, chief editorial cartoonist for the Democrat-Gazette, also has two comic strips in syndication: “Strange Brew” and “Zack Hill.” He is also exhibiting sculpture. The show runs through Sept. 17. Cantrell Gallery is at 8206 Cantrell. Deering is also the featured artist at Heber Springs’ Bryan Sink Loft Gallery, 109 ½ W. Main, where he’s showing paintings and prints with a Native American theme. Terry Riciano, Deb Dalwrymple and Diana Parker are also exhibiting work there. Deering’s is one of several exhibits at Heber Springs’ galleries that opened last week with the town’s third Monthly Gallery Drive. News of the drive reached the Times too late for advance publication. Seven other venues are regular participants in the monthly art event: The Jitterbug Coffeehouse, 111. W. Main; Common Ground, 113 W. Main; the Gem Community Theater Gallery, 119 W. Main; Shelton’s Jewelry, 203 W. Main; Seven Springs Art, 213 W. Main; Salon Art 411, 411 W. Main; and The Gallery Next Door, 1218 S. 7th. See the calendar for a listing of August shows at Heber Springs. Artists interested in displaying their work at upcoming gallery drives or businesses wishing to participate should contact organizer Corrie Sink at 501-691-3315. The next gallery drive will be Aug. 27. Another artist from the daily paper, photographer Benjamin Krain, will be in the spotlight as the Hot Springs Convention Center opens a show of his works, “A Common Light,” on Friday, Aug. 5. The convention center gallery and others downtown Hot Springs galleries will stay open until 9 p.m. that evening for the monthly gallery walk. Other shows opening Friday include “Ladies Only,” works by Blue Moon Art Gallery artists Kay Aclin, Wendy Belanger, Megan Chapman, Suzi Dennis, DebiLynn Fendley, Deborah Norton, Alison Parsons, and Jeanne Teague; paintings by Dean White and Carolyn Howard at Artists Workshop Gallery, and landscapes by Sandy Hubler at Gallery Central. Garbo Hearne, co-owner of Pyramid Art, Books & Custom Framing and Hearne Fine Art in the Museum Center at 500 President Clinton Ave., has been named to the board of directors of the Mid-America Arts Alliance, a regional arts organization that supports touring exhibits. Her husband, Dr. Archie Hearne, is a partner in the business. The gallery opened in 1988 and has been located in the Museum Center since 1997. Hearne, whose gallery showcases contemporary African-American art by nationally known artists, is also a certified appraiser of fine art. She also serves on the board of the Arkansas Arts Council and the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. Little Rock sculptor Eduardo Gomez has been selected to show his work in the 14th annual Loveland Sculpture Invitational Show and Sale Aug. 12-14 in Loveland, Colo. Gomez will show five bronze abstract sculptures. The Loveland Sculpture Group, which created the show, includes four artists whose works were selected last year for installation along the River Market walking path that leads to the Clinton Library and at Little Rock National Airport.
