Event Details

Argenta Art Walk is our favorite night of the month! The galleries and businesses of Argenta are open late tonight and hosting artists, and we’re excited to feature artist Bri Peterson at Bang-Up Betty.
From Bri: “As a child, I was fascinated with insects. I imagined them living a life parallel to humans. I pictured two cicadas drinking coffee together in the morning before leaving for work. In college, I began collecting cicada shells once again. My collection started nostalgically- a physical manifestation of my childhood. I studied the aesthetics of the shell and recreated their form through observational drawings. As my collection of bug carcasses grew, so did my interest in entomology. Researching these creatures allowed me to peer inside the varying miniature worlds surrounding us that frequently go unnoticed. My observations of this micro world expanded into connections on a macro level. All living things have a connection with one another. All living organisms have an integral role in affecting the natural balance of our planet – physically and spiritually. My artwork is a visual exploration of how I view human connections with nature and with one another.”
Stop by Bang-Up Betty from 5-8pm Friday, December 16, during Argenta Art Walk to see and shop Bri Peterson’s Work. Bang-Up Betty is handmade jewelry, local art and clever gifts located at 429 Main Street in North Little Rock above Ristorante Capeo.
