The 59th Annual Delta Exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center, to open June 9, will feature 73 works by 57 artists from seven states, the Arts Center announced today. Read the list of accepted artists in the news release here. Of the 57 artists, 42 are from Arkansas. (Others may have Arkansas ties.)

As was the case last year, the juror was presented with more than a thousand entries from which to select. This year's juror Betsy Bradley, director of the Mississippi Museum of Art, chose significantly more works than last year's juror, art dealer Elizabeth Garvey, who chose only 52 works by 30 artists.

Besides the image above, of Fayetteville artist Kellie Lehr's 6-by-4-foot oil, you can see images of some of the Delta selections at my previous Delta post, which took advantage of the connectivity of Facebook. Winners of the show awards, including the $2,500 Grand Award, two $750 Delta Awards and a $250 Contemporaries Delta Award will be announced at the member preview June 8. Bradley will give a lecture at 6 p.m. that evening.

  • ACLU asks court to enjoin antiabortion bills

    Lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union asked Judge Kristine Baker to grant an injunction against four laws passed this year by the General Assembly that would: * Make abortion after 15 weeks riskier by outlawing what the medical profession considers the safest procedure, dilation and evacuation; * Require doctors to inform local police when an abortion performed on a teenager age 14-16 absent any indication of abuse and that police create a record of the teenager's abortion and be provided the fetal remains; * Require abortion providers to ask women seeking an abortion if they know the sex of the fetus, and, if they do, obtain all of their previous obstetrical records to determine if they have a "history of aborting fetuses" of a certain sex, as the lawyer for the state said today in court. * Require notification of a woman's partner — or abuser — that she intends to have an abortion, ostensibly so they can agree on the disposition of the remains of the fetus.
