1/17: Robert Straight
Trifecta represents the three formats Straight uses in the execution of his work: three-dimensional sculptures, constructed structures, and the more conventional rectangular paintings. Though different in form, the underlying theme of time is present in each piece. A single path of color, a bold line, an irregular shape all convey a journey through time while newspaper collage signifies the day he created each piece.
2/21: Maryanne Pollock
Maryanne Pollock's abstract work finds affinity with the Washington Color School, where the application of pure color creates glowing visual sensations. Her spontaneous and improvisational style explores the effects between nurture and nature through the creative process. Controlled shapes mimic the use of human genome symbols to signify scientific theories.
3/21: Studio Artist
The Delaware Contemporary’s twenty-six studios form a collaborative community of artists. All studio artists exhibit annually in the Hatch Gallery.
4/18: James Newton
Local artist James Newton shares a story about the arts in Wilmington and how Percy Ricks influenced a generation of African-American artists. The exhibition touches on the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Occupation and Riots in Wilmington Delaware.
