100 artists in Newport Saturday

Posted By on Fri, Feb 24, 2012 at 11:47 AM

Henley, On the Loch at Dornie
  • 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.

  • ACLU asks court to enjoin antiabortion bills

    Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union asked Judge Kristine Baker to grant an injunction against four laws passed this year by the General Assembly that would: * Make abortion after 15 weeks riskier by outlawing what the medical profession considers the safest procedure, dilation and evacuation; * Require doctors to inform local police when an abortion performed on a teenager age 14-16 absent any indication of abuse and that police create a record of the teenager's abortion and be provided the fetal remains; * Require abortion providers to ask women seeking an abortion if they know the sex of the fetus, and, if they do, obtain all of their previous obstetrical records to determine if they have a "history of aborting fetuses" of a certain sex, as the lawyer for the state said today in court. * Require notification of a woman's partner — or abuser — that she intends to have an abortion, ostensibly so they can agree on the disposition of the remains of the fetus.
