The Selection Process

Each year the Arkansas Arts Council invites members of the Arkansas Artist Registry to submit 2-D artwork to be considered for Small Works on Paper. An out-of-state juror selects a maximum of 40 pieces. Up to $2,000 is available for juror-selected purchase awards, which become part of the Small Works on Paper permanent collection. Current Arkansas Arts Council advisory board members, staff of the Department of Arkansas Heritage or members of their immediate families are not eligible. For more information, please contact Cheri Leffew.
