WHAT IS ART LOOP
MUSIC, FOOD, ART & FUN
The Loop is Wilmington’s signature arts and creative community experience. Explore Wilmington’s downtown and other wonderful neighborhoods through a self-guided tour of the art, artists, and spaces that inspire a vibrant city. The Loop takes place on the first Friday of each month from 5:30 – 9:00 PM (no Loop in January or July). The Loop is a program of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs and made possible through partnership with many amazing artists and venues.

MEET THE ARTISTS
Ansel AdamsAnsel Adams had taken plenty of color photographs, but the public will never see them, by his own request. I am no Ansel, but like him, I to believe color can be rigid and restrictive. I prefer the more simplistic approach, the art of tone. Charcoal is an ordinary, which when placed in the right artists hands, becomes extraordinary.
Francis Di FronzoFrancis Di Fronzo, a Philadelphia painter, was awarded one of twelve Pew Fellowship in the Arts in 2004. During this pivotal moment in his artistic career, landscape painting became “a stage for everything in life. Anyone who looks at a landscape painting can identify immediately.” In his paintings, Di Fronzo depicts highly realistic scenes of the natural world, which are both beautiful and poetic, but also deeply mysterious, and at times ominous and foreboding.
Carlo ViolaCarlo Viola a Retrospective of Fine Art Photographs Carlo has been making fine art photographs for almost 50 years. He is now presenting a major retrospective of this work. His style can be best described as abstract realism. He has had more than 15 major local exhibitions of his work, and they have been extremely well received.
Elisabeth BardElisabeth Bard studied fine art and photography at Hiram College in Hiram, Ohio and worked as a graphic artist with 20 plus years experience. She returned full-time to photography during the 1990’s and makes this the main focus of her creative endeavors, viewing herself primarily as an artist who just happens to use a camera. Abstracts focusing upon texture, color and time are her main love and focus. Elisabeth has exhibited locally, including local museums such as the Biggs Museum and the Delaware Art Museum, and has won multiple awards for her work including the prestigious Delaware Emerging Artist for Photography for 2011 and placed first and third in the Brandywine Plein Air Competition in 2015.

Since his debut at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in 1999, he has been a featured performer as faculty at the Eastern Music Festival and Texas Music Festival, performs annually at the Techne Music Festival, and was a founding member of the ensembles Trilogy, the Johannes Trio, and Brightmusic.
