Small Works on Paper On Display in Fayetteville

Arkansas Arts Council - Thursday, March 31, 2016

The 2016 Small Works on Paper visual art exhibition is on display at the University of Arkansas in the Mullins Library through April 30. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sunday 1 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Now in its 29th year, 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.

Forty works by 37 Arkansas artists are featured in the show that will travel to 10 galleries throughout the state in a yearlong show. The entries were juried by Kati Toivanen, professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Ten artists were selected by Toivanen 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 Kathy Attwood of Eureka Springs; Margo Duvall, Amy Edgington and Robert Reep, all of Little Rock; Clarke Galusha of Norphlet; Matt Kaye of Camden; Penny Jo Pausch of Jonesboro; David Rackley and Rachel Trusty of Russellville; and Steven Vickers of Van Buren.
