All you lucky folks who have the moolah to buy art will find plenty to buy at the Arkansas Arts Center, if this 43rd "Collectors Show and Sale" is like previous "Collectors" shows, starting today.

Drawings and other works on paper and contemporary craft from 26 New York galleries are in the Strauss and Smith galleries through Dec. 31. Now is your chance to buy the Arthur Davies above or work by George Ault, Robert Arneson, Thomas Hart Benton, Pierre Bonnard, Carolyn Brady, Chuck Close, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Lesley Dill, Viola Frey, Jane Hammond, Childe Hassam, Edward Hopper, George Inness, Franz Kline, John Marin, Reginald Marsh, Samuel Palmer, Camille Pissarro and John Henry Twachtman, just for example. Director Todd Herman and Deputy Director Joe Lampo selected the works for the show/sale.

Even if you're low on dough, this show is worth going to. You can look; you don't have to buy.
