As one of the longest-running and most prestigious juried art exhibitions in the region, the Annual Delta Exhibition represents the Arts Center’s commitment to artists living and working in our community today – and to continuing to grow artistic talent in the region. Expanding the Delta Exhibition into the community is part of the Arts Center’s mission to remain vibrant, accessible and community-oriented while the MacArthur Park building is under construction. The exhibition will be displayed across four locations in downtown Little Rock and North Little Rock. The Argenta Branch of North Little Rock’s Laman Public Library joins the roster of previously announced host venues in North Little Rock. The 62nd Annual Delta Exhibition will open with a lecture by Fedor on June 18 at the Central Arkansas Library System’s Ron Robinson Theater. Showcasing artists born in or living in Arkansas and its border states, the Annual Delta Exhibition presents a vision of contemporary art in the American South. Founded in 1958, the exhibition provides a unique snapshot of the Delta region and features work in all media. The exhibition reflects the region’s strong traditions of craftsmanship and observation, combined with an innovative use of materials and an experimental approach to subject matter. Artworks from the exhibition will also appear at the Historic Arkansas Museum in Little Rock and the Thea Foundation and ACANSA Gallery in the Argenta Arts District in downtown North Little Rock. The 62nd Annual Delta Exhibition is organized by the Arkansas Arts Center in collaboration with Historic Arkansas Museum, Thea Foundation, ACANSA Gallery and the Art Gallery, Argenta Branch of the William F. Laman Library. The exhibition is sponsored by Mrs. Lisenne Rockefeller; Terri and Chuck Erwin; Judy Fletcher, In Memory of John R. Fletcher; Friday, Eldredge & Clark, LLP; JC Thompson Trust; AAC Contemporaries; Bank OZK; Phyllis and Michael Barrier; East Harding Construction; Marion W. Fulk; and Barbara House. The Grand Award is supported by The John William Linn Endowment Fund.
