That’s quite a mug on old Bess, isn’t it? She’s found a good place at Mugs Cafe, which will be open from 5-8 p.m. tonight for Third Friday Argenta ArtWalk’s event in downtown North Little Rock. Denise White’s work will be joined by work by Patrick Fleming and Fran Austin in a show called “Puzzling Juxtapositions.” 

Also tonight: John Deering will be at the Argenta branch of the Laman Public Library demonstrating his work; Deering is a cartoonist for the Democrat-Gazette. New Argenta Gallery will be open for its first ArtWalk, showing barns by noted Northwest Arkansas artist George Dombek. First Presbyterian church at Fourth and Maple will be part of ArtWalk tonight, showing mixed media by Robert Spencer. Also open: the Thea Foundation, Greg Thompson Fine Art (with a sampling of works from the upcoming “Best of the South” exhibition), the Creative Space (Stefani Darnell, Monica Clark-Robinson, Carla McGoldrick, Paula Martin Morell), Art Connection and Claytime Gallery. Claytime will also offer a sample wheel-throwing class.
