Show/Artist: Fourth Dimensionalism, Timmy Graham

learn more
Redding Gallery celebrates the work of Philadelphia-based artist Timmy Graham, as the final month of his exhibition takes fourth dimensionalism on a color journey. Graham’s work has made a palpable impression on Downtown Wilmington, as his techniques melding math and science with art, and incorporation of current social themes, captivate observers in his massive oil paintings. Inspired by the theory of relativity, color relates to measured distances on the electromagnetic spectrum as every brushstroke becomes an individual plane.

Show/Artist: San Miguel de Allende, Kathe Morse

learn more

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. The windows are barred from the outside but the people are friendly. American expatriates, Mexican families and art students share the town. The Zocalo or Jardin is the central gathering place where people sit and stroll surrounded by vendors selling ice cream, corn and balloons and Mariachi groups scan the crowd looking for listeners. The streets are steep and cobblestoned where tiny stores and restaurants are hidden, not easy to find but wonderful to discover. There are weekly market days where bargaining is the norm and frequent street festivals which included weddings and feast days of saints where musicians and masked paraders make noise and fill the streets. 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.

Show/Artist: Prima Facie by Paul Simon

learn more
Paul Simon specializes in portraiture. Soft pastels provide me with an expressive medium that can be enriched by using black and other dark hued papers, allowing the brilliance of pure pigments found in pastels to stand out as the dark substratum peeks through. Pastels can be applied in multiple layers, and this can be facilitated by the judicious use of fixative sprays. But this can also lead to the common trap of overworking the image. This exercise requires discipline to exercise restraint and protect the freshness of the medium.

Show/Artist: “Transformed Terrain” Rosemary Luckett

learn more
Rosemary Luckett’s first exhibit in Wilmington is inspired by connections between an altered natural terrain and the people who change it directly or indirectly, from close by or from a distance, on purpose or unwittingly. Further insight comes from artist Rene Magritte who taught, “the apparent visible and the hidden visible…in nature are never separate

Luckett’s detailed ink collage drawings point to the circle of life on Earth. They act as metaphors for American culture and commerce when rubber duckies are paired with live ducks and fish lines emerge from a human head. The fun in looking at these works is to discover connections between seemingly disparate entities. Finely-honed technique, a penchant for repeating forms, and a strong concern for the environment combine with a questioning mind and a sense of humor to form surreal landscapes; stories of the altered natural landscape and how each person unwittingly contributes to its transformation. Light refreshments.

Show/Artist: The Art of Mark V. Turner

learn more
Mark V. Turner is a self-taught, urban outsider painter, with a studio near Bellefonte. His 630+ works, over nearly twenty years, span abstract, fine art representational, and a blended style 2-D mixed media. He’s received eighteen awards for painting since 2008, including seven first place awards; one of which was given by Edward Loper, Sr. and his wife Janet…“Everything I’ve learned about painting has come from reading, going to museums to study how great painters made their works; and by problem-solving classic questions of shape, light and shadow while at the easel in the studio. Because of my colors, lines and textures, viewers want to touch the paintings. It’s as if their eyes demand their fingers prove what they are seeing is really there.”
