  • Gregory Johnson's "Butterfly Girl," one of the works to be unveiled Friday.

Fourteen sculptures selected for Hot Springs' annual "Invitational Sculpture Exhibition" on Bathhouse Row will be unveiled at 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 15. The ceremony begins at 5:30 p.m. in front of the Superior Bath House; Master of Ceremonies Davis Tillman will lead a procession and Kristin Howry Grant will provide musical accompaniment.

Artists whose sculptures were chosen for the four-month display are John Ellis of Batesville; Maritza and Terry Bean of Little Rock; Raouf Halaby of Arkadelphia; Wayne Summerhill of Hot Springs; Al Glann from Tuscon, Ariz.; DeWayne Hughes of Troup, Texas; Gregory Johnson of Cumming, Ga.; John Wolf from Midwest City, Okla., and Joe Slack from Oklahoma City. The work, both figural and abstract, is in bronze, marble, copper and steel.

An artists' reception is at 6 p.m. at the Quapaw Baths and Spa with food by Lee's Restaurant and Grill. The sculpture is for sale. The city buys one or more work each year for permanent display.
