Louis Watts
, whose minimalist works on paper devoted Delta Exhibition goers have seen for several years running, will hold a closing reception for his exhibition "Work: Deconstruction, Reconstruction, Communication and Labor" on Saturday, Dec. 6, in his unique venue near the Bentonville square, the Truck/Art Gallery. The mobile gallery is a former potato chip truck, and "Work" is its first show; click on the link for more images from the show. The works include drawings and collages, all in a black and white palette. About the image above, Watts writes:

Untitled VIII: (Apoptosis series) explores ancient ideas of rebirth as a result of destruction. Using a process of laying out, fixing, and then destroying the drawing with a rubbing technique to create a new composition, the piece meditates on deriving new meaning by breaking down old constructs to create new experiences. 

The reception is set for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the truck, which will be parked across the street from 21c Hotel, 200 N.E. A St. All works are sold by bid; bidding concludes at the end of the exhibit. After the reception, folks will reconvene at the Hive Bar in the hotel.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
