"Make a Face" by Paul M Simon, PhD

The show "Make a Face" displays a continuing fascination with larger-than-life portraiture, strongly inspired by faces of elderly subjects in foreign refugees that Simon and counters and his volunteer activities. Includes new subjects encountered in his travels and elsewhere and explores new directions including the human figure and provocative thematic juxtapositions. Soft pastels provide and expressive medium that can be enhanced by using dark cute papers, allowing the brilliance of the pure pigments found in pastels to stand out as the dark substratum peeks through. A disciplined approach and avoidance of overworked is required to protect the freshness of the medium.

After retiring from a 33-year career in biopharmaceutical research, Dr. Simon took up volunteering by assisting elderly or impaired non-driving individuals to remain Independent by driving them two appointments, shopping, etc and also with recently arrived refugees. He was inspired to take up more seriously what had been an occasional hobby, drawing and painting in general and portraits in particular.

"Arte Realista" by Ampara Rivera
Nora Lee's in Historic New Castle by Amparo Rivera

Delaware resident and Puerto Rican born artist Ampara Rivera enjoys capturing realistic local scenes of places she loves, and where she has traveled. Watercolor is her master medium. Says Rivera of her work: It is the immediacy of the paint and the way the pigment responds on your substrate to your personal emotional response to your subject. There can be no hesitancy while you are painting so you must decide where you will place each brushstroke of color and then let it do its magic. Certain colors do things with other colors allowing many things to form on both dry and wet surfaces that you just can't explain. It is only after a great number of years that you start to begin to understand many of its fine qualities as it hits the paper and bounces back through the pigment giving the ability it beautifies while unleashing the joy of the brushwork, color, and emotion landing the visual empowerment to one’s eye!

The Delaware Contemporary

200 South Madison St. Wilmington, DE 19801 (302) 656-6466
Margo Allman, Dan Jackson, Ken Mabrey


Margo Allman, a distinguished regional artist for over 60 years in painting, drawing, and sculpture, doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. In her first solo exhibition at The Delaware Contemporary, Allman searches for meaning from the vantage point of a seat on a New York City subway. Unlike the experience of a Denzel Washington thriller, Allman found her own "thrill" during frequent subway treks in the city that never sleeps. Embodying the belief that even the mundane elements of everyday life serve as stimulus for the imagination, Allman's innate tunnel vision explores the heads of other commuters in transit.

Primal Images: Journey from a Subway Seat presents 15 small and large-scale monochromatic acrylic paintings on paper and Tyvek, the virtually indestructible high-density polyethylene fiber sheets made by DuPont. "Not paper. Not fabric." This exhibition examines Allman's evolution as an artist. The head series diverges from the emotionally restrained geometrics of her emblematic egg-shape series to reveal ambitious, metaphysical paintings dating back to the 1980s. While her embryonic "ovoids" persist in subtle form, Allman sees her head series primordially as "heroic-sized visages or universal archetypes, both primitive and androgynous."

MATERIAL WORLD, studio artist exhibition Dan Jackson and Ken Mabrey

Daniel Jackson: In this new body of work, photographic still-lifes play with “impossible" compositions. Images feature temporary sculptures constructed in the studio that defy gravity and take on a surreal dimension, blurring the distinction between photography and computer-generated imagery.

Ken Mabrey: Ken Mabrey’s linear, expressive brushwork recalls the work of Reginald Marsh and Peter Paul Rubens with fantastical and voluptuous figures. His playful sketches, referred to as “mark-makings,” contain vast color range.

The Flow by Harold E. Howell

Artist Statement: There are those who would say, the study of nature is passé. I disagree. To me it seems as if it were never more relevant in this age of virtual reality and detachment from the physical world. My aim is not to copy what I see but to interpret, to follow my intuition, all of my senses and allow nature to flow through me. Nature is speaking, the universe is speaking, and we need to listen if we are ever to find our true place and the true meaning of our existence. Light refreshments.

"The Essence of Fine Art" Carol Mangano. Reception August 23rd, 5- 9.

Carol D. Mangano received her Bachelor of Science degree from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia. She has done graduate work from Tyler School of Art (Temple University) and University of Delaware. She has received her Master’s degree in Secondary Education from Towson University. She was born in Philadelphia and raised in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Carol has been a teacher for elementary through graduate school. She is currently retired but still teaches privately in Cecil County, Maryland. In November 2012, she received an award as an Outstanding Art Educator.

Artist Statement: An artist's journey begins while sifting through a treasure chest. The golden coins and jewels of the unknown capture the imagination. Sparking new interests, the treasures symbolize a world of exploration and potential rewards. Plein air painting has replaced lesson plans, as the artist follows the schedule of impressionistic / expressive styles of painting in oil and acrylics. Lovely weather or stormy warnings allow for the changing of the color palette. It's like a continuous summer vacation, engaging in a series of painting, discussing art with the curious bystanders and having school children become serious painters when adding a few strokes to an extra canvas.
