The Big Season Preview:
Arts for Our Sake

What’s hot on the local scene? Only more cabarets, circuses and Tony winners than David Amado can wave a baton at. That’s what. Here are the stars and shows you’ve got to see.



Carina Evangelista, the new curator at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts, came to Wilmington to create crowd-luring exhibits, such as Lauren Cotton’s “Wavefronts,” which includes “Composition No. 3 (Consequences).” “Wavefronts” is on display at DCCA through September 21.

Cultural destinations can make or break a city. In Wilmington, great contemporary art exhibits might be a great lure for visitors. At least that’s how Carina Evangelista sees it.
Evangelista is the new Gretchen Hupfel Curator at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts. Her mission: Create shows that draw crowds.
“There are many small cities that become destinations primarily because of a museum,” she says.
But contemporary art extends beyond the constructs of a museum. In July, for example, DCCA resident artist Richard Saxton collaborated with The Buccini/Pollin Group and a nonprofit vocational training program for at-risk youth, to create a bus shelter on Market Street.
“Art doesn’t exist in a vacuum. It’s not created out of spontaneous combustion,” Evangelista says. “Contemporary art is the visually compelling medium that reflects the tensions and harmonies of its environment. The DCCA is unique in its position as a site where one could view contemporary works from the region and beyond, given the relatively small size of Wilmington.”
Evangelista’s challenge is to chart new directions while honoring past successes. The DCCA presents more than 30 exhibitions a year. She’ll work to ratchet that success up a notch.
She’ll use experience she accumulated in her native Philippines as an Asian Cultural Council Fellow and curatorial creds from New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Her main role will be to organize exhibitions that tackle contemporary issues and thrill audiences. She’ll expand the scope of shows that feature regional artists by drawing parallels with the larger art world and by showing documentaries.
“I think the trick will be to organize well-researched, well-conceived exhibitions that are both sexy in appeal and substantive in content,” she says, “shows that stop you in your tracks at first sight but also linger long after you’ve left the galleries.”
 

“Man Proposes, God Disposes” by Sir Edwin Landseer is one of 60 paintings from the Royal Holloway Collection, which will be on exhibit at the Delaware Art Museum beginning January 31.Must-See Exhibits

“Philadelphia Collects: Works on Paper”
Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts Through September 22
Works from private collections are rarely seen in public. So when you consider that “Works on Paper” gathers works from Andy Warhol, Chuck Close, Jasper Johns, David Hockney, Robert Motherwell and Joan Baez from the homes of Philadelphia collectors, this is a no-brainer.

“Double Lives: American Painters as Illustrators, 1850-1950”
Brandywine River Museum September 7-November 23
Critics have quarreled for eons over the difference between easel painting and illustration. This exhibit, which represents the work of Winslow Homer, N.C. Wyeth, Frederick Remington, John Sloan, Grant Wood and Rockwell Kent, explains why.

Community Overnight
The Delaware Museum of Natural History October 17
Sleepovers are not for Boy Scouts anymore. For one night only, anyone can roam the museum until the wee hours. Guides will direct sleepy heads through “The Night Sky” to explore comets and constellations, then they’ll encourage stargazing. “Eyes on Earth” will explain space technology used to predict storms and monitor forest fires. Bring a flashlight for the scavenger hunt. Wake to a nice breakfast.

“Feeding Desire: Design and the Tools of the Table, 1500–2005”
Winterthur Museum & Country Estate November 1-February 1
For anyone who eats, here’s the dish: Flatware is fun when you consider its evolution. “Feeding Desire” explores the transformation of the act of eating into the art of dining. The Tiffany Foundation is sponsoring the exhibit, and no name says refinement better than Tiffany.  

“Forgotten Dreams: the Paintings of Edward Grant”
Biggs Museum of American Art November 5- February 21  
Grant, who trained and worked locally, enjoyed a stellar career that spanned seven decades. His earliest works exhibit social realism of the late 1920s and 1930s, followed by influences of cubism and abstraction. Grant’s later works became some of the most distinctive interpretations of life on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

“Paintings from the Reign of Victoria: The Royal Holloway Collection, London”
Delaware Art Museum January 31-April 12
When it comes to Victorian art, few exhibits can match the depth of this collection, which includes 60 of the era’s most important paintings. The collection is also a time capsule of British visual culture of the 19th century, academic to avant garde, including the work of Royal Academy presidents like Frederic, Lord Leighton and several Pre-Raphaelite artists.

 

Staying In the Loop

Art on the Town,” otherwise known as “The Art Loop,” draws more than 2,000 people to Wilmington every first Friday of most months, connecting art lovers with emerging artists whose work only gets more expensive as their reputations blossom. (Read: Buy now.) Linking 30 venues, including the Delaware College of Art and Design, the Wilmington Public Library and several corporate locales, the loop explodes with exhibits—some pint-sized, some that flex major muscle. Most locales offer wine and cheese. Others feature live music. Two shuttles start at 5:45 p.m. and end at 8:30 p.m., in time for after-parties. This year’s party locations include the LOMA district (200 block of North Market Street), Delaware Art Museum, the OperaDelaware studios and Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts. Brochures stamped at five venues earn a free after-party drink, a ticket to Theatre N or a family pass to the Delaware Art Museum. Be there. For more, call 576-2100.

Rock of Ages

Exodus doesn’t refer only to the Hebrew flight from Egypt. It also describes the declining attendance in churches of all denominations. Once-faithful flocks have left, ironically, to find some soul.
But music is bringing them back.
“People have to go out of their way to visit our downtown church,” says Jenny Warren, a pastor at First & Central Presbyterian Church in Wilmington. “Very often they come for the music.”
Warren attributes the phenomenon to music minister David Schelat, who orchestrates noontime concerts that are open to anyone who wants to chill during lunch. It doesn’t hurt when folks pick up a few church bulletins.
Scott J. Ward, minister of music at First Unitarian Church in Wilmington, directs Special Music Sundays, which incorporate readings and poetry. “Because of our belief in honoring many cultures, I’m able to bring a variety of music to the church,” Ward says. That includes Mozart, African-American spirituals and Broadway tunes. Music, however, is more than entertainment. “People comment that we can spread messages about love, peace and anti-racism with music,” he says.
The Concord Concert Series, under the direction of Matthew Pressley, is packing pews at Concord Presbyterian Church with a mix of opera, gospel, pop and musical theater. “This program is designed to represent what we consider our signature: creatively and energetically dynamic professional programs, but with no limits on style or genre,” says Pressley, who has earned a host of awards from the National Opera Association.
At Epworth United Methodist Church in Rehoboth Beach, concerts feature the works of Mozart, Handel, Vivaldi, Faure, Schubert and Strauss. Donations are helping to defray construction costs for Epworth’s new Mary Lee Music Wing.
Dover’s Crossroad Christian Church is reaching new members by incorporating contemporary music into services. “We have a lot of Top 40 listeners in our church,” says Pastor Anthony Wallace, “so we use more Top 40-style music to reach them. It’s working.”

Director Michael Gray, famous for curling the edges of the already edgy, will make “Cabaret” even darker and sexier. Watching this tuner in OperaDelaware’s intimate black box space, audiences will likely feel like flies on the wall witnessing some pretty licentious encounters.

“No Child” a play by Nilaja Sun
The Delaware Theatre Company January 14-February 1
“No Child” will stimulate a dialogue about America’s public school system by examining how we educate teens. The DTC’s season centerpiece, the drama will be directed by Anne Marie Cammarato, who  draws deep and honest performances from the actors.

“An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin”  
 DuPont Theatre March 10-15
Both won Tonys for “Evita.” But LuPone recently earned another for her portrayal of Rose in the revival of “Gypsy.”  Trust us. The earth will move.
 

Katie Branca will perform as Myrta, Queen of the Wilis, in Mid-Atlantic Ballet’s “Giselle,” October 10-11.Stars You’ve Got to See

Richard Dowling and Roo Brown at Bethel United Methodist Church Hall
Pianist Dowling, lauded by the New York Times, will open Coastal Concert’s 10th season at Bethel United Methodist Church in Lewes September 27. His first concert will be a solo performance of works by Mozart, Ravel, Chopin and others. The second will be a family concert, “Babar the Elephant,” narrated by Brown, a professional actress from Lewes.

Katie Branca in “Gizelle”
Branca, of Ursuline Academy, is an extraordinary dancer who will play Myrta, Queen of the Wilis, in Mid-Atlantic Ballet’s “Giselle” October 10-11. Another: Cassidy Bonilla of Cab Calloway School of the Arts. She stole the show in All-State Theatre’s production of “Les Miserables School Edition” in June. Mature vocals and acting make her one to track.

Steve Tague and friends in “The Hostage”
Tague won raves for playing the title role in UD Professional Theatre Training Program’s “Cyrano de Bergerac.” This year he’ll play with the Resident Ensemble Players, a new professional company of respected regional actors and PTTP grads. REP’s season will start October 22 with “The Hostage,” a play by Brendan Behan about an IRA hostage scheduled for execution.

Jeffrey Chapman and Youna Jang in “La Boheme”
Chapman, a Delaware native, will sing the role of the painter Marcello in OperaDelaware’s “La Boheme” November 2, 7-8. Fans will remember Temple University alumna Youna Jang, who collected many a bouquet last year for her performance in “Madama Butterfly.” Jang will sing the role of Mimi.  

David Warick and Amy DeBartolomeis in “Cupid Shoots Self In Foot IV”
Warick and DeBartolomeis are the founders of the Delaware Comedy Theatre, an improv troupe in Rehoboth Beach. See them and a cast of similarly nutty folk in “Cupid Shoots Self In Foot IV” at Baywood Greens in Millsboro on February 13.
