Turned Wood Heirlooms – John creates his lathe-turned heirlooms using local wood species as well as exotics from throughout the world.

Deborah Flanagan Jewelry
Jewelry – Deborah’s designs are classic, modern and minimalistic. Each piece is personally handcrafted and therefore unique. She is inspired by geometric shapes and their relationships to one another. Many of her pieces are hammered which creates facets to reflect light causing a sparkling affect. Working directly with metal, she fabricates her pieces from sterling silver wire or sheet metal. Using hammers, saws, heat and drills, she coaxes the metal into delicate pieces for adornment.  She is very conscious of how her designs will be worn and enjoyed by her customers. dfjewelry.etsy.com

About the Exhibition

Juried Craft Exhibition
October 20, 2018 – January 27, 2019

For over 90 years, the Delaware Art Museum has showcased contemporary craft in its temporary exhibitions by artists working locally and throughout the region. Capitalizing on the Museum’s popular annual exhibitions of drawings, prints, paintings, sculptures, and watercolors, the first juried Contemporary Crafts Show was formally established in 1958. Since then, a rich array of woodwork, ceramics, furniture, jewelry, textiles, metalwork, glass, enamel, and leather has been selected by jurors from museums and universities located throughout the United States. Selected by Haystack Mountain School of Crafts Director and juror Paul Sacaridiz, the 2018 Juried Craft Exhibition will celebrate this long history and one of the most vital modes of artistic production today.

Holiday House Tour: Celebrating Timeless Classics
Dec 8 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

The theme for this year’s tour – Celebrating Timeless Classics – started as just an idea; we didn’t have any houses. We wanted to enlist local builders and architects to help choose beautiful homes, but we didn’t know what we’d discover. Now, after visits to these homes ourselves, we realize that we are lucky to be invited into the new grand homes of the Brandywine Valley. The residences have been built for today’s style of living – gracious, relaxed, family oriented – and will surely stand the test of time.

Thank you to our presenting sponsors, Dewson Construction, Period Architecture and Porter Construction who identified these homes for us. The six are all different; some definitely reflect the heritage of the stone farmhouses of the past, but others chart new territory.

Doors will be open on December 8 to:

  • Elegant Highlands Classic on Kentmere Parkway
  • New English Country Manor in Greenville
  • Fox Hollow, the beautifully appointed home of one of our sponsors
  • Surprise Prairie Style residence set among the Brandywine Valley rolling hills
  • Tranquil Retreat, minimalist in decoration yet so inviting and restful
  • Chester County Hillside Estate, where attention to architectural detail and spacious rooms and vistas entice us to linger

Tickets

Tickets will be available to purchase at the front desk after October 17. If you purchase your tickets online and elect to pick them up at the Museum, they will be available starting November 1. If you choose to have your tickets mailed to you, they will be mailed after November 1. Tickets will be available for purchase at retail locations after November 1.

October 20, 2018 – January 27, 2019

For over 90 years, the Delaware Art Museum has showcased contemporary craft in its temporary exhibitions by artists working locally and throughout the region. Capitalizing on the Museum’s popular annual exhibitions of drawings, prints, paintings, sculptures, and watercolors, the first juried Contemporary Crafts Show was formally established in 1958. Since then, a rich array of woodwork, ceramics, furniture, jewelry, textiles, metalwork, glass, enamel, and leather has been selected by jurors from museums and universities located throughout the United States. Selected by Haystack Mountain School of Crafts Director and juror Paul Sacaridiz, the 2018 Juried Craft Exhibition will celebrate this long history and one of the most vital modes of artistic production today.

The Crossing
Feb 7 @ 8:00 pm

“The Crossing…imbues the music with both energy and awe.” – Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle

Performance repertoire:
the little match girl, by David Lang
selections from the Jeff Quartets

The Crossing is a professional chamber choir conducted by Donald Nally and dedicated to new music. It is committed to working with creative teams to make and record new, substantial works for choir – most often addressing social issues – with the possibility of changing the way we think about writing for choir, singing in choir, and listening to music for choir.

Highly sought-after for collaborative projects, The Crossing’s first such partnership was as the resident choir of the Spoleto Festival in Italy, in 2007. Since then, collaborators include the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), American Composers Orchestra, Network for New Music, Lyric Fest, PRISM Saxophone Quartet, Beth Morrison Projects, Pig Iron Theatre Company, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Mostly Mozart Festival, National Gallery of Art, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum, Institute for Advanced Study, Carnegie Hall, National Sawdust, and Northwestern University. The Crossing holds an annual residency at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center in Big Sky, Montana. The Crossing has presented more than 60 commissioned world premieres, including works by Michael Gordon, John Luther Adams, David Lang, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Gavin Bryars, Ted Hearne, Caroline Shaw, David T. Little, Robert Maggio, Gabriel Jackson, Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, and Hans Thomalla.

With a commitment to recording its commissions, The Crossing has issued 14 releases, receiving a Grammy Award for Best Choral Performance in 2018, its second nomination in as many years. The Crossing, with Donald Nally, is the American Composers Forum’s 2017 Champion of New Music. They are the recipients of the 2015 Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence, three ASCAP Awards for Adventurous Programming, and the Dale Warland Singers Commission Award from Chorus America.

Rennie Harris
Mar 8 @ 8:00 pm
Rennie Harris @ The Grand Opera House

In Lifted, 2009 Guggenheim Fellow, Dr. Lorenzo “Rennie” Harris merges the powerful rhythms of house music with moving gospel vocals for a contemporary exploration of community and spirituality through dance. Loosely based on the story of Oliver Twist, Lifted follows a young black man from trouble to triumph as he is ultimately “lifted” by his church community. With choreography by Rennie Harris and music directed by Steven Sapp and Mildred Ruiz-Sapp, this new work promises to be an exhilarating dance narrative.

“A tapestry of elegantly fluid popping and locking…phenomenal.” – The New York Times

Concerts on Kentmere: Pyxis Piano Quartet @ Delaware Art Museum

Pyxis Piano Quartet performs chamber concerts that include works from the sonata, duo, and trio repertoire as well as traditional and contemporary masterpieces for piano quartet.

Compelling, engaging and informative, the vibrant performances of Pyxis Piano Quartet have become increasingly sought after in the mid-Atlantic region. The Philadelphia Inquirer has described Pyxis as “excellent,” and Christine Facciolo (deartsinfo.com) stated in a recent review “balance, ensemble, superb intonation and sensitive interpretation characterized this performance.”

Each concert begins with a short curator talk exploring connections with the collection.  The Thronson Café serves drinks and light fare before each concert; coffee and desserts are served at intermission.

The DelArt Readers will select a book (or a collection of articles, or a film) each month. Our selections will have an arty or creative slant to them as we attempt to cross boundaries, giving our readers the opportunity to learn, question, debate and champion texts of every kind.  Our meetings occasionally take place off site as we explore and embrace the creative community of greater Wilmington. RSVP encouraged but not required—email ejarvis@delart.org.
