2013 Delta Small Prints: UPDATE

Posted By on Fri, Jan 25, 2013 at 4:37 PM

Arkansas State University's annual "Delta National Small Prints Exhibition" has opened at the Bradbury Gallery in the Fowler Center. This year's show features 55 prints from 46 artists from across the country. The juried exhibition, created by emeritus art professor Evan Lindquist, is in its 18th year; this year the show is dedicated to Don A. Tilton, a former vice president of the Jonesboro university and a long-time supporter of the Bradbury Gallery.

Just in over the etransom: Photographer John Bridges won the President's Award with his work, "Carnival."

Juror for this year's show was Anne Coffin, founder and director of International Print Center New York (IPCNY). In a news release, Coffin commented on her process of choosing the work for the Delta show:

“My selections process was pragmatic yet intuitive. I began by running quickly through the submissions to get a sense of the scope of the project; even at that point in the process several prints jumped out, demanding attention. I began a ‘maybe file’; the second and third times through, many more asked for another look. Many required multiple viewings as I wanted to be sure my reading of the print was fair. Soon, 90 had migrated out of the “big” file to form my initial selections. Already I regretted some of those that had been left behind, and went back to retrieve them. Reluctantly, I made some cuts, coming up with a final list, singling out prints that, for me, exemplified competence or mastery of technique in harmony with a commitment to a concept or idea that drove the project through to completion.

"Toward the end of the process, I looked also for dialogues between prints, pairings that I thought would strengthen the exhibition. I hope the show will convey the excitement I felt as I reviewed the work, looking closely at each of the submissions, sensing the adventure of creating a work of art with the fascinating array of tools available to artists in the medium of printmaking.”

The exhibition runs through Feb. 20. Bradbury Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, and by appointment.
