100 artists in Newport Saturday

  • Henley, "On the Loch at Dornie"

An artist who participated in this event last year told me it was a great show and lots of fun: The Blue Bridge Center for the Delta Arts's 4th annual Delta Visual Arts Show. The show opens tomorrow at 10:30 at several venues in Newport and runs through 6 p.m.; a reception will be held from 4-6 p.m.

The show will feature 100 artists from five states, most of them having a connection with the Delta, either personal or in favored themes. Susie Henley was kind enough to send me notice of the show, so I'm giving her the picture spot above.

Venues are the Iron Mountain Train Depot on Front Street, the Newport Business Resource Center on Hazel STreet, the old Post Office on Hazel Street and the old First National Bank on Front Street (also called the John Minor Building).

Along with the exhibits will be workshops — Arlette Miller on watercolors, Eva Haley on the "Value Sketch," Ariston Jacks on Drawing Technique and Frank Plegge on basic digital photography. Joe Martin will demonstrate clay sculpture technique and Jeff Ellis will demonstrate woodcarving. There will also be children's art workshops. Call 870-523-1009 to sign up for a workshop; space is limited.

Art Bucks will be awarded as door prizes during the show. There will be three drawings during the day for $100 to be spent toward purchase of art from the show, and another drawing at the reception for $200.

MJ’s Art Cafe will sell soup and sandwiches on the second floor of the Newport Business Resource Center.
