"Darkness on the Delta," William Dunlap, mixed media on canvas, 2015, at Greg Thompson Fine Art.
Weather permitting, North Little Rock has the cure for cabin fever on Friday, with several events to offer:
(classical painter Stephen Cefalo's outfit) is hosting the a 12-hour "Draw-A-Thon"
from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Argenta GAllery, 413A and 413B. You don't have to draw to attend, but for those who want a day of drawing with a variety of models, draped and undraped, and want to watch others draw, this is the event for you. There will be long and short poses by the models (those who've come to watch only get to be in the draped model area). There will also be refreshments; entry is $10 at door and no reservations are needed. Proceeds will go to Studio Argenta's future full-time classical art training program in Argenta.
For the 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. ArtWalk, add in Rex Deloney's
