"9 Zen Nuns," a sculpture by Oxford, Miss., artist Rod Moorhead, is the Grand Award winner in the 54th annual "Delta Exhibition," the Arkansas Arts Center's highly anticipated juried show of work by regional artists.

This year's Delta includes 54 works by 50 artists in all media; to be eligible, artists must have been born or work in Arkansas and its contiguous states. Juror Tom Butler, executive director of the Columbus Museum in Columbus, Ga., waded through 900 works to make his selections; 31 of the artists whose works will appear in the show are Arkansans. Two Arkansans, David Bailin and Keliy Anderson-Staley, won Delta Awards, and locals scooped up honorable mentions as well.
