The 3rd annual Delta Visual Arts Show takes over Newport tomorrow, with work by 70 artists at three venues, workshops and receptions. The Iron Mountain Train Depot, the old Post Office and the Newport Business Resource Center will open at 10:30 a.m., and several artists will be working at their booths.

A rundown on the workshops, which should be a huge draw: Judith Killen, grant writing for artists; Sheila Cantrell, oil techniques; Austin Grimes, painting with water soluble oils; Donna Tate Hohn, drawing portraits with color pencil; Chad M. Irwin, upcycling and altered art; Ariston Jacks, creativity in drawing; Arlette Miller, watercolor; Sally Papich, acrylic painting; Dewana McIntosh, photo transfer techniques; Emmanuel Fitz, drawing structures; and Frank Plegge, basic photography. Reserve a seat at 870-523-1009.

MJ's Art Cafe in the Newport Business Resource Center will have soup and sandwiches available, and there will be receptions at each venue starting at 4:30 p.m. For more information, e-mail director@newportaredc.org.
