John Shipp, Andy Warhol and home plates

It will be sporty times tonight at the Thea Center for the Arts, which will be showing cut-paper artwork of Little Rock artist John Shipp, a rare original Andy Warhol print of a pig and home-plate-shaped paintings being auctioned in the "Home Plate Heroes" fund-raiser for the Jim Elder Good Sport Fund. Thea, at 401 Main St., celebrates Argenta ArtWalk from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. (Other venues get going at 5 p.m.)

Shipp, a chiropractor, learned the cut-paper technique from his father and has been working with the technique since 2004, a news release said.

Pirates fans, take note: Jennifer Wilson has the home plate for you, a painting of the Flying Dutchman.
