FRIDAY 11/15. 5-8 p.m. Downtown North Little Rock.
The monthly after-hours art event in the Argenta Arts District features, among other events, exhibitions by painter Justin Bryant, at the Thea Foundation, and photographer Brandon Markin, at Laman Library’s Argenta Branch. Bryant, recently named a 2019 Interchange Artist Fellow for the Mid-America Arts Alliance, is showing paintings inspired by the Paul Laurence Dunbar poem “We Wear the Mask,” partially hidden portraits of African-American figures. The show runs through Nov. 26. Markin’s show, “Songs for the Broken Hearted,” his first solo, includes silver gelatin prints that represent “a period of tumultuousness and unsettled longing,” the photographer said. Markin’s exhibition runs through Dec. 13.
