Byron Werners work at Laman Librarys Argenta branch

  • Byron Werner’s work at Laman Library’s Argenta branch

Thea Foundation, Ketz Gallery, Greg Thompson Fine Art, Laman Library Argenta and other venues up and down North Little Rock’s Main Street have Argenta ArtWalk events lined up for tomorrow night. I’m posting now to get Candy fans a head start on weekend art-going plans.


Thea Foundation, which is celebrating its 10th year, will feature works from its collection by Henri Linton, V.L. Cox, bronzes from Royal’s Light and Time Design Studio, “Blue Dog” artist George Rodrigue and others in its gallery space at 401 Main. Audrey Dean Kelley will provide live music for the evening, 5:30-8 p.m. at all venues.

Ketz is featuring “Matthew Castellano’s Tour de World,” the artist’s homage to his grandfather in the form of historical photographs combined with bike drawings and stamps from foreign countries. New-to-the-gallery artist Caren Garner and regular John Kushmaul will also have work on display and Ketz says it will serve “summer libations and delicacies.” That could be lemonade and watercress sandwiches or booze and cool crudities … you’ll only know which it is by going and finding out.


Laman Library’s Argenta branch is featuring the pop collages of former Hollywood cameraman Byron Werner, and G.T.F.A. continues its show of landscapes by Charles Harrington and adds work by Robyn Horn, J.O. Buckley and Robert Rector.

Claytime Studios, Argenta Bead and the “Gathering of Artists” independents are also on the ArtWalk roster.
