In the Studio by Charles Allan Guerin


Oct 5, 2018 to Oct 26, 2018
08:00 AM until 04:30 PM

This event occurs daily, every weekday.


In the Studio, an exhibition of drawings by Charles Allan Guerin, will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery from October 5-26, 2018. Guerin received a 2018 Honorable Mention from the Delaware Division of the Arts for his works on paper. The artist will host a free opening reception on Friday, October 5 from 5-7 p.m.

Guerin's current drawings are pure trompe-l'oeil, a slight-of-hand mixture of the real with the illustrated; two dimensional perspective with three dimensional illusion. They are still life drawings that capture the process of drawing, mixing the subject with the resulting drawings, but in a setting typical of the daily work environment of the studio. In these works, the viewer loses sight of the reality of what is depicted as the subject often becomes confused with content and process.

This creative activity is not unlike the author of a novel whose characters become alive in the authors mind and literally speak their dialogue to the author as he/she writes the scene. For Guerin, his process is the subject, capturing chance compositions and dynamic tension between multiple levels of perceived reality.

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.
