Celebrating its 32nd year, Small Works on Paper is a competitive visual art exhibition showcasing artwork no larger than 18 x 24 inches by artists who are members of the Arkansas Artist Registry. The Arkansas Artist Registry is an online gallery featuring the artwork of Arkansas artists. Membership to the Arkansas Artist Registry is free and open to all Arkansas artists ages 18 and up.

An out-of-state juror selects a maximum of 40 pieces of artwork to tour with the exhibition. Cash prizes totaling $1,000 will be awarded in three categories: Best in Show, $500; Juror's Choice, $300; and Merit Award, $200. The 2019 juror is Robin Dru Germany, professor of photography and associate director at the School of Art at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. Germany holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Tulane University in New Orleans and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of North Texas in Denton. Her work has been exhibited nationally and is included in collections at the Center for Photography at Woodstock in Woodstock, New York; the Boise Art Museum in Boise, Idaho; and the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, Ariz.

Arkansas artists may enter up to three works of art on paper for a fee of $10 per entry or $25 for three entries. Works must have been completed within the last two years. Artists whose work is selected for the exhibition will be notified in September 2018. The 2019 exhibition will open at the Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas in Pine Bluff in January.
