> DESCRIPTION

The Delta Exhibition of Painting and Sculpture was founded in 1956 to feature contemporary work by artists from Arkansas and bordering states. Today, the 56th Annual Delta Exhibition has grown to encompass works in all media and is a showcase for the dynamic vision of the artists of the Mississippi Delta region.

Brian Rutenberg will serve as juror for the 56th Annual Delta Exhibition. Born and raised in the Lowcountry of coastal South Carolina, Rutenberg is an artist now living and working in New York City. Rutenberg holds a B.A. from the College of Charleston and M.A. from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Rutenberg will select the artworks to be exhibited and will assign the $2500 Grand Award and two $750 Delta Awards. Additionally, a $250 Contemporaries Delta Award will be selected by the Contemporaries, an auxiliary membership group of the Arkansas Arts Center. 

“The most soulful and honest works of art usually begin with a local footprint, a tether connecting many parts to one heat source, one place, in order to explore a broader panoply of ideas,” said guest juror Brian Rutenberg. “With over 1,300 images from 468 artists, this was certainly the most challenging exhibition I’ve ever juried.”
