  • AT OVAL: Beverly Norton Walker's landscape.
When Oval Gallery held its inaugural juried exhibition last year, 16 pieces of art won a spot. Oval’s a year old now and its First Anniversary competitive show, judged by Barbara Pryor, has matured, too. This year, Pryor — an art collector and wife of former Sen. David Pryor — had 300 entries from 115 artists to consider for the exhibit. (Last year’s show was judged by gallery owners Pepper Pepper and Carla Koen.) She chose 87 entries — including paintings, jewelry, fabric, glass, sculpture, photography, ceramics and mixed media — representing the work of 58 artists from all over Arkansas and eight out-of-state artists. Winners of a purchase award and cash prizes of $100 and $50 will be announced at a reception from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19. All but the purchase award winner will be for sale, and all works are priced under $1,000. Among the Arkansas artists represented in the exhibit are Terry Bean, Sandie Moore Bettis, Tanya Fitzgerald, Angela Green, Tanya Hollifield, Dixie Knight, Tom Lean, Don Marr, Lam Tze Sheung, John Sykes and Beverly Norton Walker. Some of the artists in the show are from smaller Arkansas towns, including Cabot, Cave City, Mena, and Winslow. Oval is at 201 W. Capitol. There’s street parking and parking in the rear in the evening. On Saturday, Aug. 20, the gallery will show the winners in the 48 Hour Film Project competition held in July. The films start at 6 p.m.; tickets are $6. Bill Rowe, professor of art at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, will exhibit neon sculpture in an Austrian show called “New Art. New York: Reflections of the Human Condition.” The exhibit will run from December 2005 to May 2006 in galleries in Truan and Salzburg. Rowe’s in good company with Chuck Close, Lesley Dill and Sandy Skoglund, among others.
