I'm very pleased and humbled to report that one of my pictures was chosen to tour the state next year as part of the 2012 Small Works on Paper exhibition. SWOP is part of the Arkansas Arts Council, and it will visit ten cities across the state. The opening will be at Laman Library in North Little Rock.
The picture chosen was taken in January of this year, during a very cold and foggy night at the Big Dam Bridge:
The 2012 Small Works on Paper is scheduled to visit 10 cities in Arkansas:
January: North Little Rock - Laman Library
February: Hot Springs - National Park Community College
March: Bentonville - Northwest Arkansas Community College
April: Fort Smith - Fort Smith Regional Art Museum
May: Forrest City - East Arkansas Community College
June: Helena - Delta Cultural Center
July/August: Pine Bluff - Arts & Science Center
August/September: Conway - UCA Baum Gallery of Fine Art
October: Stuttgart - Arts Center of the Grand Prairie
November: Hamburg - Ashley County Museum
This will be the fifth time I've had a picture included in Small Works on Paper, and the fourth year in a row (I imagine they're getting pretty tired of me there). This is the shot currently touring the state as part of the 2011 tour:
