2nd Friday Art Night in Little Rock

Greetings artists and patrons of

Last Friday night was the “2nd Friday Art Night” in beautiful downtown Little Rock in the River Market area. The weather was a little uncooperative with brief sprinkles of rain but the temperature was delightful. I got a chance to talk with Art Space gallery owner Debra Wood as several dozens of art patrons shuffled through admiring all different art mediums from the various talented artists from our state. Her gallery is located at 301 President Clinton Avenue.

We then made our way to talk with Reita Miller, the curator, from the Cox Creative Center on the 2nd and 3rd floors at 120 Commerce Street across from Sticky Fingers. Here we able to talk with a local musician Maria Miller who was entertaining the patrons as they perused the works of many talented artists from the surrounding areas. We also talked with one of the featured artists Bill Lewis, a Michigan native and long-time resident of Little Rock, whose water color renditions, gave us vivid illustrations of the Cliffs of Calico Rock, Carriage Ride, First Steps and Church in Eureka Springs.

The weather broke and gave us a dry pass back to the car where we recounted our wonderful evening that started at Rumbas for some Cuban cuisine and margaritas. All the magnificent art and the wonderful people and gallery owners we got to talk with. Reita Miller and Debra Wood were excited about what were doing with our web site and hopefully both will soon have a presence on As we made our way back home we looked forward to another exciting evening in beautiful downtown Little Rock at the next 2nd Friday Art Night.
