I'm going to do a cut and paste job to get in all the artists (and their works) accepted into this year's Delta Exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center, which runs Jan. 27-March 28 next year. I'll also upload more images of the work as they become available.
Some stats first: Juror Tom Butler, executive director of the Columbus Museum in Columbus, Ga., selected 54 works by 50 artists from 900 entries by 427 artists. Of the 50 accepted, 30 are Arkansans.
