There’s new public art in Argenta that celebrates the North Little Rock’s once-hated, now-embraced moniker “Dogtown.” The sculpture, at Sixth and Main streets, was designed by Terry Bean and fabricated of steel (it’s one of two Bean sculptures installed; more are on the way.) The Argenta Arts Foundation provided the photo above, plus information on tonight’s art offerings, 5-8 p.m. on Main Street:

Katherine Rutter, whose watery and fine-lined paintings of ambiguous human and animal creatures have earned her a national reputation as a muralist, is showing paintings in a show called “Meet Me in the Water” at the Thea Foundation (401 Main St.), where she’s painted a mural on the wall as well.


The Latino Art Project has a new show, “In Bloom,” at regular host venue Core Brewery (411 Main).

Abstract printmaker Dustyn Bork of Batesville and photographer/painter Heidi Carlsen-Rogers of Bella Vista put up a show of new work, “Flowers and Facades,” at the Argenta Branch of the Main Library (420 Main St.).


Larry Pennington’s “About Face” show of photography is on exhibition at Argenta Gallery (413 Main St.), where profits from sales benefit the Argenta Arts Foundation. (Adjoining gallery StudioMAIN continues its “Year in Review” show of creative design.)

Greg Thompson Fine Art (429 Main St.) continues its “Southern Abstraction” exhibition of work by Arkansans Robyn Horn, Dolores Justus and Sammy Peters and top regional talent.


Up in the 700 block, find Barry Thomas Fine Art & Studio (711 Main St.), where the impressionist will demonstrate technique

Theatergoers: Remember the Main Thing’s production of “Orange Is the New White,” a comedy about exactly what you think it’s about, at the Joint Theater (301 Main St., curtain at 8 p.m.).
