“Each painting is an uncompromising visual document of my journeys and experiences.”
The tumult of the past several years is palpable in the thin lines of conte crayon, broad fields of rich charcoal, and brushstrokes of oil paint laid down on stretched canvas. Each one of Monique Rollins’ gestures is saturated with energy, and each composition teeming with emotion—a devastating pandemic, the war in Ukraine, the joy of new life. Throughout her career, Rollins has united the complex and dual nature of existence and consciousness into a singular composition. The works are unified by a twisting line that follows the peaks and valleys of life like a thread spun by the Fates.
Rollins continues to push her dual commitment to line and color, and her recent drawings and paintings from 2022 show no exception. Over the years, Rollins has created a unique visual vocabulary I refer to as biogeometric abstraction. The pairing of biomorphic and abstracted geometric forms creates allusions to remembered landscapes or endless spaces. Like abstract expressionist painters of the 1940s and 1950s, Rollins simultaneously aligns and divorces drawing and color, and the results are dynamic. The urgency and forcefulness with which one form intersects another is balanced by a calm field of color, a space into which one can disappear. These are works of exuberance but not frivolity. Exquisite Delineations is a bold grouping of Rollins’ drawings and paintings that showcase the graphic and affecting impact one can achieve when these two essential elements of art are expertly combined.
Exquisite Delineations is presented by John William Gallery and 1313 N Market, LLC. The show runs through Wednesday, January 5, 2022. Join us for the Art Loop reception from 5-8pm. Art goers are encouraged to check out newly opened The Chancery Market Food Hall before or after their visit! Enjoy delicious, curated food vendors, drinks, and plenty of comfortable seating.
Monique Rollins is a contemporary painter inspired by the colors of the Venetian renaissance and the contemporary Italian land and cityscape. Rollins’ portfolio consists of oil paintings, acrylic paintings, charcoal drawings, and paper collage paintings on canvas incorporating a number of mediums including pencil, acrylic, watercolor, and pen and ink. Each painting is an uncompromising visual document of her journeys and experiences, her interest in human emotion, allusions to place, memory, and fleeting moments of the conscious and unconscious. She is a master colorist and gesturalist. Her drawings and paintings continually cross-pollinate aesthetically to produce painterly drawings that uplift the viewer. Rollins’ work has been exhibited internationally for over a decade, including at Kyro Art Gallery in Pietra Santa, Italy; Metroquadro Miami Gallery; Gallery Onue in Seoul Korea; Gallery 83 in Kyiv, Ukraine; Barbara Davis Gallery in Houston, TX; the Dante Alighieri Society in Venice, Italy; the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Paris, France; Metroquadro Gallery in Turin, Italy; the Zhu Naizheng Research Center for Art in Beijing; Andre Zarre Gallery in New York City; Tayloe Piggott Gallery, Wyoming; Art Central Hong Kong and many public sites throughout the city of Wilmington, Delaware, her home town, as well as many prominent private collections in North America, Asia, Europe, and the Caribbean.

From the artist: When I was young and receiving my first impressions, I remember an underlying magic and mystery emanating from the physical world. The sky, the trees, the stones, the stars, around every corner there was some potential wonder that required only the spark of imagination to ignite. My belief is that the artists’ job is to explore the mystery - not to solve it, not to offer an explanation, but to say, here it is, make of it what you will…

Discover the diverse and complex work of young emerging artist, Amos Lemon Burkhart (1998-2018). Through Lemon’s work, visual media, and participatory interactives, visitors will explore the complexities of emotional turbulence, anxiety, and trauma, questions about love, sex and gender identity, and issues around substance use and abuse. An observer of the quirks and oddities of the human race, Lemon’s wit, humor, and despair is revealed through his work.
Through this exhibition curated and toured by the Amos Lemon Burkhart Foundation, his work is used to spark often difficult, yet necessary conversations around mental illness, substance abuse, gender identity and other issues that affect teens and young adults. By touring this exhibition to schools throughout the country, the Foundation seeks to shine a light on how the making of art can serve as a critical mode of art for anyone wrestling mental health and other acute issues.
Amos Lemon Burkhart was a driven young artist who created hundreds of paintings, works on paper, digital art and animations between the ages of 15 and 19. He died tragically at 19, drowning in an accident fueled by a combination of Xanax and alcohol. He briefly studied life drawing at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and experimental animation at CalArts, as well as in high school art classes. In his own studio in a barn, Lemon restlessly worked to understand and express his own turbulent interior life in images, text, sound and motion. The complexities of emotional lability, anxiety, and trauma, questions about love, sex and gender identity, and issues around substance use and abuse are revealed in complex, layered images. A ceaseless observer of the quirks and oddities of the human race, Lemon’s wit, humor, and despair are all right there in his work - if you look closely enough.
This exhibit runs December 2, 2022 – February 12, 2023. Join us for the Art Loop reception on December 2nd from 5-7pm.

Baby grand Gallery:
Beth Trepper: Ireland, my ancestral homeland, has beckoned me to her shores more than twenty times, many accompanied by my beloved partner, Bill. Hiking daily from the door of our rural seaside cottage in the rugged west of Ireland, we grew intimately familiar with the mountains, rivers and bog land of this gorgeous country.
Bill passed in 2014. My world was rocked; I was forever changed. I had no idea how I would forge a life without him, and I certainly never expected to return to Ireland. But I did. Something drew me back, again and again. Ireland stirs my soul, nourishes me, bathes me in her warmth, her stirring music and breathtaking beauty. Like an intimate friend, she has helped me through my grief and brought joy back into my life.
“The Madwoman of the Bog” was inspired by my loss. To this day, when I walk the green fields and barren plains of Ireland, I look for Bill. I feel his presence, I hear his laughter. I long for him. I always will. I began to imagine a woman, so overcome with grief when her lover vanishes, that she spends eternity searching for him. Her story is more tragic than mine, yet I feel her pain and despair. I have spent the last several years shooting self-portraits to illustrate my poem. Nowhere in Ireland is there a more mysterious and mythical region than the bog - the ancient natural wetlands from where peat is harvested for fuel, where an entire ecosystem of plants and wildlife are sustained, and from where some of Ireland’s greatest legends originate.
What better place than the bog for the Madwoman to appear, to haunt the landscape, to launch her epic, futile journey?

We all have passions and dreams to be discovered, pasts to be guessed at, and futures that are still to unfold. SOULS is a collection of portraits that seeks to both capture and tell some of those stories. Long fascinated by the human condition, Flavia Loreto aims to go beyond the physical externalities of her subjects, and to capture their very essence.
The exhibition, hosted in the hallways of Wilmington’s Music School of Delaware, shows 20 black and white portraits of men and women in different ages, nationalities and professions. The portraits are labeled only with the subject’s first name, ceding power to the audience to go beyond the image, imagining the stories behind the photographs and also to create new stories of their own.
Born and raised in Rome, Flavia Loreto developed her passion for portrait photography as a way to connect to others, and to better understand emotions and feelings. After 20 years living and working as a photographer in Germany, Flavia relocated to the US, where she continues to study the human condition through her photography. Among her exhibitions: Donne (Düsseldorf 2013), A Day in Naples (San Francisco 2017). She collaborated on books like - L’arte in cucina (Mondadori 2018) - and - La Valle del Silicio (Italian Foreign Ministry 2019).
Old Swedes Historic Site606 Church Street Wilmington, DE 19801
Join us for the Art Loop reception from 5-9pm with music, cash bar, appetizers and onsite, free parking.
Artists’ Statement: The History of America has always been a unique source of inspiration for artists. While growing up on Long Island and now residing in my adoptive state of Delaware I’ve learned to appreciate the beauty and historic charm of both regions. At Old Swedes and in other parts of this area there are stories of both local and national interest to be discovered.
Using my background in painting and illustration I like to express my fascination of these historic surroundings by depicting the people, both well-known or otherwise, which have help mold their communities along in this quickly changing world. I enjoy using various media such as graphite, wash and oil. My style leans toward an Americana and primitive look in many cases which I believe is well suited to the subjects I draw and paint.

Taking it to the next level, Nupur draws inspiration for her art from day-to-day experiences and surroundings.

Masters Fellow Linda Blaskey was a writer from the start: “I was always getting into trouble in school because I was writing stories rather than paying attention in class.” Fortunately, she had encouraging teachers, and once she set out on her path, there was no turning back.
Emerging artist Stephanie Boateng has owned a business since she was 18 years of age selling prints, originals, and stickers of her art. Now the recent University of Delaware graduate is beginning her career as a professional artist, hoping to share the joy she feels when making her work. “My portraits are very emotional beings,” created to be “an experience of happiness, love, and beauty” both for herself and her viewers.
Established artist Joseph Barbaccia is “continuously excited about how a specific medium which is traditionally used in one genre can be expanded to a successful level in another.” In 2018 he moved to Georgetown, Delaware where his workspace was smaller. He landed on polymer clay as “the perfect choice.” The material – with its transparency and a full color spectrum – allows him to create in both two and three dimensions.
Emerging artist Maia Palmer, in addition to her career as an artist, is also a faculty member at Cab Calloway School of the Arts! She is the high school Visual Arts teacher, and loves sharing her talent and passion for the arts with her students. She particularly enjoys “the immediacy of drawing . . . the grittiness of charcoal. I love that I can work directly with my hands on the paper.” Her large scale charcoal self-portraits address her personal journey as a migraine sufferer.
About Cab Calloway School of the Arts: Cab Calloway School of the Arts (CCSA) is the premiere public school with an arts-based curriculum in the state of Delaware.

ARTISTS’ STATEMENT: Prepare, then risk. Whether the project at hand is a Calligraphic Document, a Watercolor Painting or a combination of the two, the dynamic stroke is the holy grail of my work. Bravery in handling the pen and brush yields power. Much preliminary work goes into laying down the master stroke. I practice until the stroke is ready and then execute confidently and fearlessly. Hopefully, the proverbial “Stroke of Genius” is achieved. While a subject may be quiet, this is not the same as uncertainty and even calm pieces must be executed bravely.

Living in the Newark – Elkton area since 1969, Lynne attended the University of Delaware, taught in Delaware public schools, and volunteered locally since retiring in 1997. A chance rescue of a 112-pound golden retriever named Boo in 2003 changed Lynne’s life and sent it on a course toward pet therapy. Now, founder and executive director of the pet-therapy organization, PAWS for People, Lynne is a believer of the profound and positive impact a visit from a pet can have on anyone – not only those physically, emotionally, or psychologically in need. Overseeing PAWS 650+ therapy teams, 13 employees, and 190 partnering sites where PAWS’ teams visit keeps Lynne out of trouble – most of the time. When she discovered the magic and vibrancy of alcohol inks during a class given at the Newark Arts Alliance, she quickly turned her spare time from emails to inking, inking, inking! She shares her love of alcohol ink through art festivals, demonstrations, and teaching classes.

Artist Statement: I fling paint. I shoot it through a straw. I drip it. Splatter it. I use a brush and palette knife but mostly my fingers. Whatever my intuition says, I do. The colors that call out to me are the ones that end up on the paper.
Everyone is creative. Though we don't need any special talent to make art, many of us are too inhibited to let our creative intuition have much of a say in our lives.
Intuitive painting is a path for cultivating inner trust and becoming comfortable with not knowing what will show up. It’s about the process, not the product. Lack of concern about what the final piece looks like puts a quick end to inhibition.
My art is an invitation to the viewer to accept the beautiful mess inherent in their own lives as I welcome it in mine.

'Neo Pop' is largely the term used to describe Joshua's body of work. The thought process takes on a satirical view of social, popular and cultural statements and ideas. He examines the American dream thru color while combining the cult of celebrity, comic aesthetics, music heroes, portrayed by strong projective narratives. While using familiar visual signs and icons, he arranges bright, layered paintings. Joshua uses a large arsenal of mediums that include aerosol, acrylic, oil and ink to just about anything he can get his hands on to give life and form to his style.
Sip, snack and enjoy objects d'art this 4th Friday in Historic New Castle. The show will be on display through the month of March with the last day on the 25th.**Don't forget to shop our vast array of art and antiques while enjoying the show.
