In 2017, Dolores Pye Josey left a long life fully committed to the deepest and most enduring perception of the world around her, its forms, its colors, and its movements. She spent her life in creative activity through painting, contemporary dance, ceramic arts and the art of Yoga. Shortly before her death, her first and only book, Crossing Boundaries, a novel of the old west, was published. That work, as in the other areas, had to do with human perceptions of self, of each other, and of the world and its myriad forms and meanings. Dolores spent two years at the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque before moving to the University of Illinois and completing her B.A. in Fine Arts. She received the M.A. in painting at the University of Delaware and the M.A. in dance Education at the Laban Centre, London England. Wine, cheese and crackers will be served.
Grace United Methodist Church900 North Washington St. Wilmington, DE 19801
It is clearer than ever how so many of us sit in the posture of waiting. We find ourselves in holding patterns; waiting for the test results, for our congress person to act, for the next wave of bad news, for a glimpse of hope in these dark times. In the Christian Church, that is what the season of Advent (leading to Christmas) is all about. In the popular carol, “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” the lyrics speak of waiting for home in the midst of exile, longing for freedom in the midst of captivity. Grace Church and One Village Alliance present work of community artists as part of our pre-advent celebration. Works will explore these themes of waiting in the face of fear and uncertainty, of finding hope in the in-between space of “not yet.”
Join us for Christmas themed live music, fun fellowship, yummy food for sale...and of course, art! Live music featuring 3-2-1 Winds playing holiday favorites plus delicious local food for sale, including holiday cookies!

The photographers range in age from 14 to 95 years old, and are mostly amateur through advanced enthusiast.
baby grand: "Pacem in Terris Traveling Peace Youth Art Exhibition "
The Pacem in Terris Traveling Peace exhibition features art created by Delaware youth. Their art answers the questions, “What does peace look like?” and “What does the world that you want to live in look like?” The exhibition was conceived as a dialogue between our younger citizens and us— they showing us the world they want to live in, and us, understanding their vision, charged with a responsibility to respond. Last year, Pacem in Terris invited local youth to create art that is a vision of peace— that answered the question, “What does peace look like?” and “What does the world that you want to live in look like?” Over 650 artworks from 42 schools and community organizations submitted inspiring work that will be exhibited at The Delaware Contemporary, September during PeaceWeek Delaware. Through a generous grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, Longwood Foundation and Wilmington Flower Market, the Pacem in Terris Traveling Peace Youth Art Exhibition will travel as part of the Pacem in Terris Traveling Peace Youth Art Exhibition. For more information on the show see the Youth Peace Art website.

In Hannibal's extensive research of the subject matter, drawings are the first in this multi-step process in creating each translation. A drawing and then a master coded tracing followed by individual tracings for each fabric used involves multiple hours in finding the correct fabrics that relate to each other in texture, color, dimension and pattern, which are of the utmost importance. Each piece of work requires patience in cutting and gluing with intricate positioning along with many underlayments of fabrics to give each translation a three-dimensional quality. The eyes are made of silk and oil pastels to give soul and character to the work.
Hannibal Lee was trained in the Brandywine tradition under the teachings of Carolyn Wyeth, sister of the famed Andrew Wyeth at Chadds Ford Pennsylvania. Training in the tradition of realism then moving toward abstract in watercolors and oils, Hannibal wanted to express his view of Art and a more unique and original way after being introduced to fabrics by friend.
His work has been exhibited in numerous juried shows. He has been an invited guest artist at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Exhibition of College. He personally exhibited at the Delaware Art Museum, Guild Hall in Long island New York, Sande Gallery in New York City and most recently at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington Delaware. Permanent collections include: The Hershey Library in Pennsylvania, The Alfred I. Dupont Institute and Methodist Country House in Wilmington Delaware.

MALICE’S RESTAURANT, Hennessy Experiment by Natalie Hutchings Natalie Hutchings, explores social constructs of history and the willingness of many to view societal ills from a distance through rose colored glasses. Hutchings creates an altered rendition of classic Americana through the window pane of the ubiquitous diner. Props such as vintage tables, tablecloths, menu boards, countertops, and fake plants set the stage to trigger memory of the sins of institutionalized racism, patriarchal abuses, and the colonial impetus that spawned and still nourishes them. decontemporary.org/hennessy-experiment-hutchings Natalie Hutchings is a multidisciplinary artist, futurist, and educator. She is a member of the Vox Populi artist collective in Philadelphia, PA. Hutchings received her MFA from the University of Delaware in Studio Art and a BFA from Towson University in Interdisciplinary Object Design, a hybrid of digital fabrication, craft, and sculpture. As a graduate student, Hutchings was a winner of the Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Awards from The International Sculpture Center (Sculpture Magazine) and was a 2018 Fellow of the Delaware Public Humanities Institute (DeLPHI) for her research in Material Culture Studies. She has exhibited in Berlin, Germany; Dallas, TX; Portland, OR; Baltimore, MD; Wilmington, DE; and, Philadelphia, PA.
GESTURE OF MOTION, Haeley Kyong, The idea of relativity is pronounced in color theory, where hues activate and affect the perception of adjacent hues. Although color appears independently identifiable, they are merely illusions based on their placement next to each other. Relativity is also significant in patterns and the use of repetition, conveying a sense of perceived movement. decontemporary.org/gesture-of-motion Haeley Kyong received her BFA in painting from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ and holds an M.Ed and MA in Applied Linguistics from Columbia University, NY. Kyong has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions and public art projects; has commissioned work for corporate offices; and is the recipient of numerous awards and publications. She currently holds a studio in New Jersey and at The Delaware Contemporary.
A HISTORY OF THE WORLD - SORT OF, Hugh Atkins and Jenna Lucente, “Let there be light, and there was light. And we may have landed on the moon. That would be after the pyramids were built, mind you. In their uniquely distorted and opinionated timeline of the world, Atkins and Lucente present the absolute truth. “In 2020, history isn’t dead, but it is unreliable... and everyone knows it. But then, everyone knows everything. Wait! Is that right? I’ll Google it... decontemporary.org/atkins-lucente Hugh Atkins’ art involves dismantling images and putting them back together in different forms. Why? Good question. To discover new perspectives on what seems to be. Atkins is a visual artist whose lyrical work yields compositions typically forming melanges of human forms, landscape, and intricate borders. Jenna Lucente uses layers of mylar and manipulated imagery to juxtapose past and present. How do you know history? As it really was? Or through the lens of pop culture and the homogenization of events? Lucente is an artist and educator currently living in Delaware. She recently completed a public art commission that includes 28 glass windows for the above-ground Arthur Kill train station in Staten Island, New York.

Artist and SciArt Educator, Dolores Bartholomew will present her award-winning “Meanings of the Heart Art” series. Using the holiday season as her inspiration, Dolores explores the theme of Traditions and Memories and how essential they are for creating lasting bonds of connection among us. It will consist of heart-warming images of the holiday season and will cover many different kinds of traditions that occur throughout the exhibition. Her work is intended to help us reflect and focus on how families, friends, and community can enjoy the many customs and share them with others as a way of creating lasting and warm memories that science has shown brings individuals and communities closer at heart. Dolores will share her family practice of counting down to Christmas with an Advent Calendar as part of the exhibition in which every day, starting from Dec 1st to the 24th she will reveal a new work of art or inspirational phrase of the calendar that will be on display in the gallery. Each will be a suggestion of how we may take a mindful moment and share in the act of kindness or activity. She will also draw upon how the holiday season is celebrated around the world with her illustrated series of the celebration of 12th Night and how we may celebrate each of the 12 days of Christmas with illustrations of a customary cookie and a tradition of other world cultures.

Steve Oliver's approach to creating wildlife and nature art is by trying to capture each animal's character and personality. Using acrylics, ink or colored pencils, each of his subjects are brought to life in vivid color and meticulous detail, while surrounding them with a captivating and interesting background. In this exhibit, you are invited to explore his recent original works on canvas, which is combined with some other pieces that offer a glimpse into some of the earlier works on illustration board. Throughout this collection, the artist hopes you can appreciate and enjoy the natural world as seen through his eyes and as he has depicted it in his art.
Steve has been doing art most of his life, but for the past thirty-five years has enjoyed a rewarding career as a wildlife and nature artist.
Known for strong compositions using details to accurately capture animals and the natural world. Close attention to light, color, atmosphere and mood are also consistent in Steve’s artwork. While very proficient with several mediums, he works primarily with acrylic paints, but frequently combines the paint with colored pencils and ink. For many years, Steve has been painting on Strathmore illustration board, but for the past 2 years, he has also been working on large canvases.
In addition to receiving numerous awards and much recognition for his animal art, Steve is a longtime signature member of the worldwide organization, The Society of Animal Artists and has taken part in many regional, national and international wildlife art shows.

Art and nature go hand-in-hand and there’s no better place to see that brought to life than at DMNH! Join us as we celebrate the opening of Yesterday: A snapshot of nature, an installation created and curated by FourYouth and members of our community as part of November’s Art Loop.
FourYouth Productions’ photography students visited the Museum in August to learn about Earth’s geology and biology, as well as how scientists use our scientific collections to research Earth’s natural history. Students developed an understanding about how Earth’s landscape and living organisms evolved in response to various environmental factors.
A few weeks later, the students led a photography class for our visitors demonstrating various techniques, and capturing images of fossil, rock and skeletal specimens from the Museum’s education collection. Through the images on display here, FourYouth hopes viewers gain a better understanding of our collective past and a greater sense of responsibility to protect the future of our natural world.
FourYouth Productions is a 501c3 non-profit organization fostering the development of underprivileged youth through educational programs. Through project-based learning connecting photography with science and engineering, students excel academically, create amazing art, and learn to be entrepreneurs by selling their artwork.
All images on display are available for sale with proceeds benefitting the museum and FourYouth’s Student College Fund Initiative.
Admission is free.
