Little Rock photographer Tim Hursley tells a great story about seeing this two-headed calf in a junk store in Northeast Arkansas and deciding he had to have it. It took a while, but success was his, and now the photograph this nationally-known lensman made of the calf (now in his studio) is the $2,500 Grand Prize winner in the "Delta Exhibition" of the Arkansas Arts Center, which opened today.

Elizabeth K. Garvey, co-founder and owner of Garvey-Simon Art Access Inc., was juror.

If you've been keeping up with Little Rock artist David Bailin, you know he's been doing a lot of erasing in his work. He's been afraid he would just erase himself right out of the world. Fortunately, that has not happened. He won a Delta Award ($750) for his charcoal on paper "LAMP" (below).

The second Delta Award went to yet another Little Rock artist, Katherine Toler, for her installation, "Hush/Flux."

Honorable mentions went to Julie Brook Alexander of Houston, Texas, for her work "Intersection"; Pokey Alrutz of Springfield, Mo., for her work "2121"; Michael Elliott-Smith of Alexandria, La., for his work "Juniper and Moon"; Paula Kovarik of Memphis, Tenn., for her work "Pollinators"; and former Delta winner Mark Lewis of Tulsa, Okla., for his work "Admiral and Lewis." Lawrence McElroy of Alexander won the $250 Contemporaries Delta Award for his "Portrait of Gabriel Sword."
