The Arts & Science Center invited amateur and professional photographers to capture the natural beauty and human experience of the Delta in this juried photography exhibition. Photographs of the landscape, people, artisans, musicians, wildlife, buildings and transportation give viewers a glimpse into the Delta Rhythm & Bayous Highway, which runs through the Delta from Pine Bluff to Lake Village along U.S. 65, and into Greenville and Leland, Miss., along U.S. 82.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Pine Bluff Advertising & Promotion Commission and Barbara House. It will remain on display in the International Paper Gallery through Saturday, April 20, 2019.
The Arts & Science Center, located at 701 S. Main St. in Pine Bluff, is open Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and closed Sunday and Monday. Gallery admission is free.
