Gallery Walk, held the first Friday of each month, gets underway tonight in downtown Hot Springs. Gallery Walk features the opening of new art exhibitions showcased in downtown fine art galleries and studio spaces from 5-9 p.m.

"We know that community cases of COVID-19 are rising and hope that all Gallery Walk attendees will adhere to CDC guidelines by continuing to wear masks and utilize social distancing. Please remember to enjoy and support our local art scene while keeping our community safe," the event's sponsor, the Hot Springs Area Cultural Alliance, posted on its Facebook page.

According to HSACA, the following galleries will be open for Gallery Walk today, unless otherwise noted:

All Things Arkansas

610 Central Ave.

Features products from Arkansas, made in Arkansas, and relating to Arkansas.

American Art Gallery and Gifts LLC

724 Central Ave.

Featuring Valerie Hanks-Goetz with new work and demonstrating pine needle basket weaving.

"To see someone smile when looking at the work of my hands is the greatest compliment I can receive because it means they are sharing my smile. I wanted to do something that I enjoyed, something that would not need to be upgraded or replaced in a year, something that would bring honor to my family and tribe, the Muskogee Nation of Florida. I find art in unusual places has grown from the Muskogee belief that everything has a purpose and nothing should be wasted," Hanks-Goetz says in a news release.

Claude Lambert will be present with his knives; Ernie Bolieu will show jewelry and discuss Southwest Design; and there will be wall art by Jimmy Leach, Patricia Bailey, Margaret Kipp and Carole Beam.

Artists' Workshop Gallery

610-A Central Ave.

Visit Artists' Workshop Gallery's Facebook page and website at http://www.artistsworkshopgallery.com for more information about the gallery and its artists.

Two area artists, Jan Briggs and Joy Clark Hill, are the gallery's featured artists for August.

"Enthusiasm and passion abound in all Jan Briggs' works," a news release said. "Inspiration for her art comes with each new day, bringing an eclectic display of color, subjects and styles. She works in a variety of media, including pieced watercolor, a technique she developed. Animals, rural barns, churches and landscapes are but a few of her favorite subjects," all of which will be seen in her August exhibition.

"Drawing for as long as she can remember, Jan has always enjoyed many types of art. She is a longtime resident of Hot Springs and attended Henderson State University, later finishing her BFA degree in Studio Arts. She has won numerous awards for her work and her paintings hang in many commercial and private collections across the country. She is active in several arts and community organizations," it said.

Hill is originally from Texas and moved to Hot Springs Village in 2007. In addition to art, her passions include gardening and music. "While she enjoys many art genres, Joy is particularly fond of modern and abstract painting. Her art is distinguished by deliberate strokes of vibrant and energetic colors, using unique techniques and textures. She enjoys telling a story of her thought process in her paintings, allowing the viewer to participate in the creative interpretation of her work," the release said.

"Music is a theme in her recent works and she often uses sheet music as the first layer. Her August exhibit will feature some of the famous guitars that shaped the face of early rock 'n' roll and still influence modern sound today. Joy's entertaining art may be seen in galleries and private collections across the United States."

Miniature Art featured artists for August are June Lamoureux and Pati Trippel.

Call 501-623-6401 for more information. The gallery's hours on Monday, and Thursday through Saturday, are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and, on Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
