Heins Barn Owl

  • Hein’s “Barn Owl”

Rene Hein’s “Birds of Arkansas” is this month’s exhibition at Ketz Gallery, 705 Main St., open 5-8 p.m. tonight for Argenta ArtWalk. Ketz says in a news release that Hein has expanded her bird paintings to include species native to Arkansas, which should make them irresistible to birdwatchers, which would include yours truly. Some may grouse that they’re not exactly representational — barn owls aren’t red — those would be colorless types who care more for details than art.


Ketz is also showing landscapes by Louise Carlisle and new work by Marty Smith and Diane Plunkett. Apple cider, wine and beer will be served.
