  • The Arkansas Arts Center hosts a preview of the 55th Annual Delta Exhibition Thursday.

6 p.m. Arkansas Arts Center. Free for members.

Arkansas Arts Center members will get a preview of what a news release promises will be an "innovative and provocative" Delta before the show's public opening Friday, Jan. 18, in the Winthrop Rockefeller Gallery.

If the work is to be more provocative than last year's Delta offerings it will have to include something to best "Taste" by Steven Jones, a terrific photograph of a naked woman clutching a fork and knife at a table; if more innovative, it will have to outdo Niles Wallace's huge knot of bundled carpet circles that art lovers and cats worldwide would appreciate.

Juror Monica Bowman, owner of The Butcher's Daughter Gallery in Ferndale, Mich., selected from 800 entries 45 works by 34 artists from Arkansas and contiguous states; 20 of the artists are Arkansans. In a departure from years past, winners of purchase awards and honorable mentions won't be announced until the members' reception; Bowman will make the announcement after she gives the talk "Risk, Failure and the Materialization of Place" at 6 p.m.

It's all about getting you there.
