The Art of Kara Hinson
Glow by Kara Hinson

Kara Hinson is a Delaware based visual artist. Her art prominently features representations of black women in a variety of medium including vivid, layered watercolor portraits and illustrative ink/digital drawings. As a child, she was always encouraged to be artistic by the number of artists in her family. Although self-taught for most of her childhood, Kara graduated from West Chester University in 2007 with a minor in Studio Arts. During her studies, Kara found a love for figure drawing and further developed her drawing skills.

After a hiatus from art for many years, Kara found new inspiration in watercolor - drawn to the unpredictability of the easily flowing pigments. Layers of surrealistic colors create a dreamlike atmosphere in which her paintings focus on the diversity and strength of women. Often incorporating themes of nature, astrology and nostalgia, her work aims to offer inspiration and tranquility.

Kara has exhibited at The Delaware Art Museum, The Delaware Contemporary, Chris White Gallery, and DCAD. Her art is for sale in many shops throughout Delaware and Pennsylvania and she has vended in a variety of art markets in the Northeast for over 5 years. Kara has collaborated with several brands and designers including Buzzfeed, Ritual Shoppe and Henry Masks.

Join us for the Art Loop reception from 5-7pm. Refreshments will be served.

JaQuanne Leroy solo exhibit “The Anthology: Trust The Process”
Stop Stressin by Jaquanne LeRoy

This exhibit explores the artistic development of JaQuanne LeRoy through the years, 2014-present. The abstract expressionism of his visual art reveals the personal, spiritual, and emotional growth that came along with JaQuanne’s artistic growth. Art — just like growth — isn’t always pretty. Through this immersive show, JaQuanne invites you into his messy process as a designer, showing early sketches and mockups for murals, paintings, and flyers he’s done over time.

JaQuanne LeRoy has had a residency with the Delaware Art Museum, and his work has been featured in the Grand Opera House Gallery, the Delaware Contemporary, and the Delaware Children’s Museum. Join us for the Art Loop reception from 5-9pm.

Wit, Humor, Despair: Amos Lemon Burkhard
Lemon Eye-by Amos by Amos Lemon-Burkhart

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.

Vision of Peace by Jada A.

Grand Gallery:

Celebrate Humanity, the marks people make in the world. Treasure the local, the small scale, the eccentric, the ordinary: whatever is made out of love, courage and resolve. Respect what people have built for themselves. Capture the dignity, the beauty in the human experience, as cluttered and complicated as it is in our lifetime. Simply…create living art.

What is your vision of a peaceful world?

What does peace mean to you?

Over 700 students from 40 Delaware schools and community organizations answered those questions by submitting inspiring artwork and descriptions for the Pacem in Terris 6th Annual Visionary Peace Youth Art Exhibition. Local art and peace leaders selected the strongest messages of peace to travel throughout Delaware as part of the exhibition.

This juried exhibition showcases a diverse collection of beautiful, original, inspiring visions and messages of peace. The young artists, between 5-18 years old, submitted their artwork from public, private, and charter schools or community organizations. Seven additional collections of Traveling Peace youth artwork are concurrently exhibited at galleries and locations across the state. For details, see the Pacem in Terris website at

We are grateful to the young artists and their art teachers, along with the volunteers, generous sponsors, and donors for their support. Special thanks to Jerry’s Artarama and our partner, The Delaware Contemporary. This exhibition is supported, in part, by grants from the Laffey McHugh Foundation and The Delaware Division of the Arts. The Delaware Division of the Arts is a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware Art events on
