Delta Exhibition Winner is Soiree Alumni

David Bailin of Little Rock is the recipient of a Delta Award from the 54th annual Delta Exhibition, to be held Jan. 27-March 28 at the Arkansas Arts Center, Ninth and Commerce streets, Little Rock.

Leslie Newell Peacock said, “Bailin’s linear charcoals are like the newspaper clippings he says guided his thoughts, if not his images [ ….. ]. They tell stories in black, white and shades of gray. His drawing ability, intellect and sometimes humorous regard of the human condition are unmatched hereabout – perhaps anywhere. He’s a master….”

This master and recent Delta Award winner is also a Soiree alumni. He was a feature in Soiree’s art section in the May 2005 issue.

The piece entitled “Recking with His Place in the World,” highlighted Bailin’s life as an artist in Little Rock. You can read the entire article here.
