"Small Works on Paper: 2006-2011 Retrospective,"
a touring exhibit sponsored by the Arkansas Arts Council, opens today at Pulaski Technical College's Ozarks Gallery in the Ottenheimer Library. The college is located at 3000 W. Scenic Drive in North Little Rock. Reception for the retrospective is 1 p.m. Sept. 27.

The show includes 33 purchase award winners selected from past "Small Works" shows; the current "Small Works" exhibition is at Ouachita Baptist University's Hammons Gallery through Sept. 20. The "Small Works" shows always include strong work by Arkansas artists (here's a review of the 2012 exhibit), so the retrospective of winners should be particularly dense with good pieces.

Like the annual "Small Works" show, the retrospective exhibition will tour as well, to colleges in Malvern, Hope, Camden, Ashdown, Nashville, DeQueen, Hot Springs, Helena, Forrest City, Batesville and West Memphis. The show will stay at Pulaski Tech through Oct. 24.

"Small Works on Paper" features work no larger than 24 by 24 inches. It was created in the 1980s by members of the Arkansas Artist Registry maintained by the Arkansas Arts Council.

    Smart Mobility Inc. engineer Norm Marshall explains in this Congress for New Urbanism article why highway departments' arguments for highway widening fall short of reality (as the graphic above does as well): He says its because their modeling is out of whack, both in its estimates of the effect of expansion on travel times and the effectiveness of boulevards, and he uses the plan to widen Interstate 30 from six lanes of traffic to 12 or more as an example.

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
