On Thursday Dec. 7th and Friday Dec. 8th paintings from my new series will be on show and for sale as part of the ANTIGALLERY Christmas Show. This is the second time I've participated in this exhibition. The ANTIGALLERY is held at SWAY Nightclub in Little Rock and features the work of Arkansas LGBTQ Artists and Allies. Accompanying the art show will be excellent drag performances.
Friday will be a fun night to come out as it coordinates with 2nd Friday Art walk in Little Rock. Many downtown museums will be open late and participating with art, performances, and refreshments from 5 - 8 pm.
