..and the waters rise by Jenna Lucente
The Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs announces the second exhibition in a joint venture with the The Delaware Contemporary on display in the lobby of the Louis L. Redding City/County Building. This self-guided exhibition features three paintings by The Delaware Contemporary studio artist, Jenna Lucente. Lucente’s landscapes present a vision of a marred environment through the effects of flooding and climate change. Her paintings explore ruination and the irreconcilable differences that often infiltrate dialogue as we individually, and collectively, try to navigate through the sullen results. Deluged, lost, and searching, Lucente’s anonymous figures appear to eerily meander half-submerged through swollen waters. Overwhelmed by the inundation, the figures grasp each other for support as they brave the environment. The figures represent global familiarity: everyone you know and don’t know. Lucente’s work investigates how a disaster can strip away all excess translated with a sense of stillness and simplicity. The veil of monochromatic color harmony unifies each image, while revealing to the viewer a covert message of the existential new normal.
San Miguel de Allende, Kathe Morse continues: no April reception
Kathe Morse’s exhibits continues through April, but there Is no reception on April 5th. San Miguel de Allende, a magical place, is located 4 hours north of Mexico City but still in the heart of Mexico. I spent time there in 1972 as an art student, again for several days in 2003 with my husband and again in 2018. It is a place of colorful painted buildings, built in the 16th and 17th centuries that look plain from the street but often contain beautiful courtyards and arched entrances to rooms. I loved this town in 1972 when it was a sleepy little place. I found it more crowded and noisier on this recent visit but still as beautiful and enchanting. I hope my pictures capture and become reminders for me and others of its spirit and energy.

The Grand Gallery
Through Her Eyes by Kristen Margiotta
Oil painter and published illustrator Kristen Margiotta presents an exhibition of her oil paintings and drawings spanning almost a decade. Fears within, whether real or imagined are explored in Margiotta’s character driven oil paintings. Many of the paintings featured will be exhibited together for the first time, creating a new narrative that continues Margiotta’s story of Cherry as she explores the Other World filled with dark nemeses as fear personified. The presentation within the hall of the Grand Gallery will create a unique and fitting space as if the viewers are stepping within the walls of Margiotta’s dark and introspective paintings. Live music by Justin Koerner. Prints, books, and merchandise will be available during the reception hours of 5-8pm, Friday April 5th.In recent years my work is evolving and perhaps returning to earlier imagery focusing on symbolism. I’ve also returned to portrait painting, something I’ve greatly missed over the years. The beauty of the evolution of my work is seeing that all of these different facets still feel like me and are all coming from the same place. I have never been a fan of labels, or boundaries. Those are dangerous. I just want to keep painting and growing as an artist and continue making connections with people through my art. That’s what it’s all about for me.

Wilmington, DE 19801
“I Couldn’t Think of a Title” featuring James Wyatt
My work honors varied subject matters in a surreal nature – some well-known figures and others are derived from personal thoughts. The energy from my subjects evolve into dynamic beings through a 3D technique which came out of necessity. Lacking supplies as a young artist forced me to use scraps that eventually became my signature 3D accent detail today. Typically, eyes are drawn into the vibrant tones from a distance, contrasting layers, and unconventional materials. Eventually, it’s human nature to move closer with a desire to touch my work.
Sand Storm Warning by Velvet Poindexter
I have been creating one-of-a-kind sand mixed medium artwork since 2010. They are a fusion of art captured in sand, acrylic paint on wood to create textured dimensions. Every grain of sand is uniquely me. There is so much art that cannot be touched. I want people to touch and feel my emotions through art. I found art to be my outlet…my love for seeing experiences across all boundaries and our future. PLEASE TOUCH.
SPATIAL PERSPECTIVE II – Anthony Sealey Photography
The geographical scientific definition of this term is the following: “A way of identifying, explaining, and predicting the human and physical patterns in space and the interconnectedness of various spaces”. This is a little complex for my simple mind. The word Spatial, simply relates to “space”. The word Perspective, “a point of view”. Space can relate to things both physical and emotional. We all are affected by and surrounded by space every minute of our lives. It affects the home we buy, how fast we drive and every relationship we have with others. Whether a space is physical or emotional, they are looked at with a unique point of view. Perspectives are limitless, since we all see things differently. My objective has always been to take photographs that evoke personal thoughts and emotions, rather than dictate my perspective on others. For this reason, my works remain “Untitled”. The goal is that we learn about each other through our differences by recognizing the beauty in our diverse views and being drawn closer because of them.
Join Delaware Humanities and the Wilmington Public Library for the grand opening of the exhibit “DEstination: Space.” The exhibit delves into the past, present, and future of space exploration and Delaware’s invaluable contributions. The Wilmington Public Library is the exhibit’s first stop as it travels for one year throughout the state of Delaware. Refreshments available.
BLACKOUT, a solo exhibition by Rick Hidalgo and THE FIRE THEFT, group exhibition curated by Rick Hidalgo
Roderick Hidalgo constructs an experience that places the viewer in a land of textures, objects, and structures. His work shifts between part painting and part sculpture where objects become habitats in a cellular aesthetic. As such the work is both meditative and sensual. “I want people to relate to my work at their core levels–where they came from; it’s the one thing that connects us all.”
THE FIRE THEFT, group exhibition curated by Rick Hidalgo
An ensemble of eleven local artists who explore the gamut of human emotion with the output of painting, sculpture, glass, mixed media, and drawing. Ultimately, all the work is imbued with enchanting expressions of identity or place communicating information and ideas.
Studio artists John Breakey and Anne Oldach

Ephemeral by Frank DePietro
New Paintings by Frank DePietro, Contemporary realist paintings inspired by close observations of the natural world. Much of Frank’s recent work focuses on lotuses, leaves, and water lilies from the ponds at Longwood Gardens. “My paintings are inspired by close observations of the natural world… I attempt to capture ephemeral moments on canvas in a crisp and technically sharp manner… They are reflections of the relationship to the changing notion of what nature is and what meanings our relationships to it have given us.”
New Castle, DE 19720
Through the Eyes of Shen Yun – An Artist’s Journey by Dawn Majewski
With each of the mediums I choose to use – such as: pastel or oil paint for portraiture (people, animals, or objects); watercolor or pen & ink (landscapes and structures); or any other choices for various work including illustration – I try to approach the work as if I were the eyes of each person visualizing what one sees allowing the use of dimension through art. Though watercolor is my preferred method, it is also one of the more difficult materials to use due to its “once it’s applied” technique which you can’t erase or go over like other mediums.
