Easter Seals Arkansas presents one of its annual fundraisers, Art & Soul, at Noah's Event Venue in West Little Rock. The event includes food from Ya Ya's, live music, and a live and silent auction featuring art by local artists (including me) and children and adult artists of Easter Seals. General admission tickets are $50 and are still available online.

Gallery 26 in Hillcrest presents its 21st annual Holiday Art Show, featuring work by 60 Arkansas artists. The reception is 7-10 p.m., and the exhibition runs through January 9.
Holidays in the Heights: Lots of shops in the Heights will be open outside of their normal business hours to kick off the holidays with special deals and visits from Santa.
Local jewelry brand Bella Vita celebrates its 1-year anniversary with a party at the brand's studio and storefront. Bella Vita will be collecting blankets, coats, and undergarments for The Van at the event.
Fan of the koi fish mural at Sixth and Main streets in downtown Little Rock? That's all Matt McLeod. The Little Rock artist celebrates the grand opening of his gallery across the street from 5-8 p.m. on November 12.
The Arkansas Art Educators Association presents the first ever Arkansas Art Teacher Exhibition at Argenta Library. The exhibit has been up since October 30, but a November 13 reception is when winners of jury-selected awards will be announced. (Across the river, November 13 is also 2nd Friday Art Night in downtown Little Rock.)
The Arkansas Arts Center Museum School Sale is one of my favorite places to do some early Christmas shopping. One small change from the past few years: This year the sale is located at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds. If you're a member of the Arts Center, remember that you can go Friday for a preview party. Saturday is open to the public.
Fans of the Jimmy Fallon spin-off Lip Sync Battle will probably be interested in this Little Rock Lip Sync Battle at Argenta Community Theater. Benefiting Relay for Life of Greater Little Rock, the fundraiser will feature tunes lip-synced by local media celebs. Tickets are $50.
The second annual Holiday Pop Up Shop, featuring gifts and goods from Arkansas crafters (including, again, me), opens in StudioMAIN on South Main Street in Little Rock. The shop will be open every day of the week through December 6, and art demos and food tastings are part of the lineup.
Moooore shopping events. There's a theme as we near Christmas, no? The Promenade at Chenal celebrates its eighth annual Celebration of the Lights, where there will be a chance for photos with Santa, music, face painting, the lighting of the Christmas tree, and of course, coupons for use in the shopping center.
