David Warren, associate professor of printmaking at Henderson State University, won the $1,000 first prize in the Irene Rosenzweig Biennial at the Arts and Science Center in Pine Bluff for his linocut "Voyage." 

The Rosenzweig, which includes work by 29 artists in a variety of media, was juried by Coriana Close, art professor at the University of Memphis. 

Lisa Krannichfeld of Little Rock won a juror's award for her painting "Collar (in black and gold)." It's been a good year for Krannichfeld, who also won the Delta Award in this year's "Delta Exhibition" at the Arkansas Arts Center.

Other Arkansas artists whose work was selected for the show include Douglas Frank, Sandra Sell, Robert Reep and Carolyn Furnish of Little Rock, Eleanor Lux of Eureka Springs, Eric Mantle of Roland, Karlyn Holloway of Austin, Aaron M. Calvert of Arkadelphia, Ed Pennebaker of Green Forest, Louise Halsey of Ozark and Justin Bryant of Roe.

Irene Rosenzweig (1903-1997) was a Pine Bluff native who earned a doctorate from Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania, won the Prix de Rome Fellowship from the American Academy in Rome and was a tutor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt's family in the White House. The Irene Rosenzweig Foundation and the ASC Endowment Fund Inc. created the Irene Rosenzweig Exhibition Fund in 1992. 

The exhibition runs through Nov. 21. Also on exhibition there: "Pictorialist and Modernist: Howard Stern Photographs from the Permanent Collection" and "(Un)distorted: Perceptual Paintings by Matthew Lopas."
