Living in Mythology by Jean Diver


Apr 6, 2018 to Apr 27, 2018
08:00 AM until 04:30 PM

This event occurs daily, every weekday.


Living in Mythology, an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Jean Diver, will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery from April 6-27, 2018. A free opening reception to meet the artist will be held on Friday, April 6 from 5-7 p.m.

Inspired by Howard Pyle, Jamie Wyeth, Gustave Klimt, and Brandywine school art, Diver creates work filled with symbolism and metaphors. Her paintings fluctuate between past and present, a pictorial convention of landscapes and abstract color fields. In this body of work, Diver's mythological narratives are set in romantic landscape of fall and spring - young males, a young girl, and a black pug and cat are her subjects. Her work is a mix of the romance of projecting wishes for a better future to the humor of bad luck.

The Mezzanine Gallery, open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington.
