JONESBORO – The 26th Delta National Small Prints Exhibition (DNSPE) opened Thursday evening at Arkansas State University’s Bradbury Art Museum (BAM) with a public reception for the artists and arts patrons, according to Garry Holstein, director of BAM.

Miranda K. Metcalf, juror for the 2022 exhibition, reviewed entries from artists in the U.S. and beyond.  She saw the title, medium, dimensions and statement associated with each print, but not the artist’s name or residence.

Metcalf, who is founder and host of “Hello, Print Friend,” a weekly podcast, selected the prints to include in the exhibition and also determined which artists would receive purchase prizes, with their work becoming part of A-State’s permanent collection.  Others received sponsorship awards.

A full-color catalog of the entire exhibition is available to visitors and the artists.

“DNSPE serves as a record of traditions and innovations in the field of printmaking. When viewing the works throughout the years collectively, we see the evolving parameters of the printmaking field,” Holstein said in his director’s statement.  “In individual artists, we see their consistent vision as their art progresses over decades. This year allows us to welcome back three of the artists who were awarded purchase prizes in the inaugural exhibition.”

The purchase award-winning entries include (in alphabetical order by the artist’s last name):

• Dr. Mitzi Scotten Purchase Award (in honor of Bert Henry Shubert): “Death and the Printmaker,” 2021, etching, by David Avery.
