This event occurs daily, every weekday.
Established Color, an exhibition of vibrant still life paintings by Thomas Del Porte, will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery from September 7-28, 2018. Del Porte received a 2018 Fellowship in Visual Arts: Painting. The artist will host a free opening reception on Friday, September 7 from 5-7 p.m.
In his work, Del Porte intends to tell a visual story within each stroke of paint. His paintings are made with little jeweled, thorn like curls, each stroke acting as an individual recording of a moment in time. He explains, “I paint from direct observation, in the attempt to capture a unique portion of the infinite gifts of light, line, color and spaces that nature provides. My goal is to communicate a visual quality that reveals something new within the movement and drama of the images I translate.”
The Mezzanine Gallery, open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located on the second floor of the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington.
