Edward Loper, Sr. is one of Delaware’s most celebrated artists, having lived his entire life in the state and taught generations of local artists. His son, Loper, Jr., was equally prolific, taught at the Christina Cultural Arts Center, and participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the region. This is the first comprehensive, museum exhibition to showcase the paintings of these two important artists together. The Loper Tradition opens the Delaware Art Museum’s new Distinguished Artists Series honoring local artists with continued impact on this region.


Research for this exhibition has been undertaken by Dr. Leslie Wingard through the support of the Alfred Appel, Jr. Curatorial Fellowship. | Images: Quebec City (La Porte Street), 1978.
