Bitter Homes & Gardens presented by The Bearded Ladies

The Bearded Ladies

Philadelphia’s famous cabaret company, The Bearded Ladies, go back to their roots with this outdoor cabaret that asks: “If plants had voices, what would they sing?” This hour-long botanical spectacle will feature flowers, ferns, weeds, and vegetables singing and dancing their way through the big questions that face our plant brethren. Led by Jebediah Eatin-Good, a friendly ear of corn, this bio-diverse cabaret features a range of music from Bill Withers, Bob Dylan, and Tom Waits to RaeLynn and Faith Hill, as well as original songs by resident composer Heath Allen. Join The Bearded Ladies afterwards for a post-show talk on satire.

Adults and families welcome. Bring your own lawn chairs and/or blankets. Food and drinks available for purchase in the Thronson Café. Performance will take place in the Copeland Sculpture Garden (indoors if inclement weather).

IX Preview Weekend
Sep 23 @ 4:00 pm – Sep 25 @ 4:00 pm

Imaginative Realism combines classical painting techniques with narrative subjects, focusing on the unreal, the unseen, and the impossible. In partnership with IX Arts organizers, the Delaware Art Museum will host the first IX Preview Weekend, celebrating Imaginative Realism and to kick off IX9–the annual groundbreaking art show, symposium, and celebration dedicated solely to the genre. Imaginative Realism is the cutting edge of contemporary painting and illustration and often includes themes related to science fiction and fantasy movies, games, and books. A pop-up exhibition and the weekend of events will feature over 16 contemporary artists internationally recognized for their contributions to Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, Marvel, DC Comics, Blizzard Entertainment, and Wizards of the Coast, among others.

The weekend will also include after-hours events, performances, exclusive workshops with artists, talks, film screenings, artist signings, live demos, and games.

Ticket information, event details, and registration will be available this summer. 

Imaginative Realism

The Imaginative Realism tradition harkens back to many of the great 19th century Romantic, Pre-Raphaelite and Victorian artists such as John Martin, Edward Burne-Jones, and John William Waterhouse, and moves through many of the great Golden Age illustrators of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including Howard Pyle and N.C. Wyeth, both well-represented in the Museum’s collection. Rarely seen fantasy works from Pyle and other Golden Age illustrators not usually on view will be displayed in the Museum’s permanent collection galleries during IX Preview Weekend.

With the mass exposure to imaginative subjects that has come with science fiction and fantasy movies, games, and books throughout the 20th century and up to the present, the imagery of these artists is more deeply embedded in the public consciousness and popular culture than ever before.

About the Artists

The artists represented include Greg Hildebrandt, illustrator of the original Star Wars poster; Boris Vallejo, who is famous for his illustrations of Tarzan and Conan the Barbarian; Charles Vess, whose award-winning work graced the covers of Marvel and DC Comics; and Donato Giancola, known for his paintings for Lucasfilm, DC Comics, Playboy Magazine, and the Syfy Channel.

Other featured artists include Julie Bell, Bob Eggleton, Stephen HickmanRebecca Leveille-Guay, Ruth Sanderson, Jordu Schell, Matt Stawicki, Matthew Stewart, William O’Connor, David Palumbo, Dorian Vallejo, Michael Whelan, and Mark Zug. Each artist will present original work in the pop-up show, covering the gamut from illustration through personal/gallery work in a wide range of mediums. All artists represented will be present at the Museum over the course of the weekend.

About IX

Launched in 2008, IX is the first, groundbreaking art show, symposium, and celebration dedicated solely to Imaginative Realism–bringing artists, students, collectors, and art fans together for an annual gathering intended to inspire and create further awareness and zeal for Imaginative Realism and the realm of the fantastic.

IX is the world’s largest gathering of artists, students, and collectors of Imaginative Realist art. Each year, over 200 artists come to IX from around the world for five days to exhibit their work, finding inspiration and buyers in equal measure. Over the years, the show has been attended by artists from all over the United States, Canada, Spain, Australia, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Croatia, and the Netherlands–featuring well over 1,000 pieces of original art and countless books, prints, and other materials each year. In addition, art collectors from as far away as the United Kingdom and continental Europe attend annually.

IX 9 will be held in Reading, Pennsylvania at the GoogleWorks Center for the Arts October 19 – 23, 2016. For more information, visit imaginativerealism.org.
