Back in early 2012, Conway quartet This Holy House released their debut, 12 tracks titled Love and Hope in the War Times. The collection ranged from the furious, feedback-propelled rock stomp of “Three Pieces for the Devil’s Chess Game” to the banjo-fueled rock ’n’ roll of the opening track, “Love and War.” The record was an exciting debut, with songs roaring along on big crests of music and other, quieter moments when This Holy House slowed down and entered atmospheric rock territory.
The newest exhibit at the Arkansas Arts Center is the 12th National Drawing Invitational: Outside the Lines, which presents works from some of the best graphic artists in the U.S. The exhibit starts Friday at the Arts Center and continues through Oct. 5. The exhibit’s start is marked by a 6-7 p.m. Thursday opening lecture by exhibit co-curator Laura Roulet titled Contemporary Mid-Atlantic Drawing: Noun + Verb. The lecture is free for members and $15 for nonmembers.
