Norwood Creech of Lepanto and Tim Jacob of Little Rock both love to paint the Delta, and they do so in long, narrow sweeps that capture the topography and agricultural nature of the area. You can see their work in "The Arkansas Delta Duo: The Art of Tim Jacob and the Art of Norwood Creech" at the Delta Cultural Center in Helena/West Helena. A reception will be held 5-6:30 p.m. Friday, June 12; the show runs through Aug. 22. 

The DCC press release describes the work thusly: 

Tim Jacob began painting regularly in 2002 and uses a technique he calls “puddle painting,” which consists of watery overlays of color bordering impressionism. Jacob is interested in the effects and reflections of light, either natural sunlight or artificial light, of automobiles or buildings. He also has a love of the flat, desolate, stark, landscapes of the Arkansas Delta, and feels that in many ways they represent a step back in history and lifestyle.

Norwood Creech calls the agricultural flatlands of Northeast Arkansas home. The Delta landscape is her primary subject matter. She studies the crops and the tree lines, and incorporates structures that are typical of the agricultural landscape, such as water towers and farm houses. Several of her paintings depict Indian mounds that are found in the Northeast region of Arkansas. One special place that Creech has included in this showing is the historic Dyess Colony and the boyhood home of singer Johnny Cash at Dyess, Arkansas.

Galleries are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
