Calling all cell phone photographers: 'Explore Arkansas' instagram show coming to Mugs Cafe

I am looking forward to the "Explore Arkansas" exhibition of Instagram photos at Mugs Cafe, 515 Main St. in Argenta, thanks to pix forwarded to me by Mugs gallery director Diane Harper and Pastor Tommy Wallace, who created the @ArkMoPhs account on Instagram (find the group on Facebook here). The smart phone has turned us all into photographers, so it's a medium we can all relate to, and comparing what's on your phone to what the @ArkMoPhs folks have hung on the walls at Mugs should be great fun. Mugs will be open after hours (5-8 p.m.) Friday for Argenta ArtWalk if you are headed that way. "Explore Arkansas" runs through July 15. 

The show was a competition; jurors were Josh St. Germain, a "mobile photographer" from Massachusetts; Arkansas photographer Kelly Shipp; Shotz photo-sharing founder Mitchell Hughes, and artist David O'Brien
