I'm very pleased to report that one of my photos was selected to tour the state next year, as part of the Small Works on Paper exhibition. SWOP is part of the Arkansas Arts Council, and will visit eleven cities across the state.
The picture chosen was taken in April, along Route 66 in Newkirk, New Mexico. It shows a rusty old car, left to bake in the sun by the ruins of an old gas station.
The 2011 Small Works on Paper is schedule to visit:
January - Conway, AETN Atrium
February - Alma, Alma Performing Arts Center
March - Fayetteville, Univ. of Arkansas Mullins Library
April - Harrison, North Arkansas College
May - Blytheville, The Gallery at the Ritz
June - Batesville, Batesville Area Arts Council
July - Lake Village, Guachoya Cultural Arts Center
August/September - Searcy, Harding University
September/October - Hope, Univ. of Arkansas Community College at Hope
November, Texarkana, Texarkana Regional Arts & Humanity Council
This is the fourth time that I've had a picture included as a part of Small Works on Paper, and the third year in a row. This is the shot currently touring the state as part of the 2010 tour:
