Small Works on Paper in Searcy Through Feb. 23

Arkansas Arts Council - Monday, February 12, 2018

Through Feb. 23, the 2018 Small Works on Paper touring exhibition will be on display in the Elizabeth Mason Gallery at Harding University at 915 E. Market Street in Searcy. Hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free.

Small Works on Paper is a juried visual art exhibition that showcases artwork no larger than 18 x 24 inches by Arkansas artists who are members of the Arkansas Artist Registry, an online gallery showcasing the artwork of Arkansas artists. Thirty-nine pieces are featured in a year-long show that will travel to 10 galleries in the state.

This year’s entries were juried by James Phillips, an associate professor in the Department of Arts at Howard University in Washington, D.C. He selected six artists to receive purchase awards. Purchase award winners receive the cash amount equivalent to the value of their selected works. Funded by entry fees, the purchase award pieces become part of the exhibition's permanent collection.

The artists selected to receive purchase awards are Terry Lynn Dushan of Fayetteville, Robert Simmons of Little Rock, Rex R. DeLoney of Little Rock, Mitchell Skinner of Grady, Melissa Foster of Conway and Elissa Gordon of Mountain Home.
