Mark Lewis, TU Applied Associate Professor Art, was included in the 54th Annual Delta Exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock.
The Delta Exhibition of Painting and Sculpture was created in 1956 to feature contemporary works by artists from Arkansas and the bordering states. The Delta Exhibition has grown to encompass works in all media and displays the dynamic vision of the artists of the Mississippi Delta region. The Delta Exhibition is open to all artists who live in or were born in one of the following states: Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas. Fifty-four works by 50 artists were selected for the exhibition by Tom Butler, executive director of the Columbus Museum in Columbus, Ga. More than 900 works by 427 artists were submitted.
Lewis was awarded the Contemporaries Delta Award for his paper and powdered graphite collage, Peoria Ave., #5.
The exhibition will be held in the Townsend Wolfe Gallery of the Arkansas Arts Center from January 27 – March 28, 2012.
