55TH ANNUAL DELTA EXHIBITION
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.

    I'm at anchor on a ship lying off Grand Turk Island, and I should have known better than to pick up the digital Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, particularly given the painfully slow download time on the ship's satellite Internet. But I did and began a slow burn.
  • Stop presses: Clintons ambitious

    Here are a couple of earthshaking developments: It turns out that Hillary Clinton is obsessed with privacy and that across the years former U.S. Sen. Dale Bumpers detected ethical failings in other politicians, even friends like Bill and Hillary Clinton.
  • The loss of skepticism

    The manufacture and dissemination of didactic fables pleasing to the viewing audience is what many journalists do. And that's becoming almost as true at MSNBC as at Fox News. Particularly in stories involving race and sex, that is to say, a lot of them.
