About the Exhibitions

Posing Beauty in African American Culture
Curated by Deborah Willis, Ph.D., Posing Beauty in African American Culture explores the contested ways in which African and African American beauty have been represented in historical and contemporary contexts through a diverse range of media including photography, film, video, fashion, advertising, and other forms of popular culture such as music and the Internet. This exhibition will take place in Gallery 10.

Angela Fraleigh: Sound the Deep Waters
Directly inspired by the Delaware Art Museum’s Pre-Raphaelite and American illustration collections, this commission from Angela Fraleigh presents a contemporary look at gender and identity through the lens of historic narrative art. Fraleigh’s opulent paintings are populated by female figures freed from the social constructs of their time. This immersive exhibition will be installed in Gallery 9.

Performance: Raye Jones Avery & Adagio with Dennis Fortune, Musical Director

“Between” is the sophomore release from Raye Jones Avery. A native of Philadelphia, Raye grew up in Wilmington, Delaware where she has been a staple in US arts world. As Executive Director of the Christina Cultural Arts Center, Raye has been one of the driving forces in the continued flourishing of creative arts in the Mid Atlantic region. Now, Raye is stepping out to make a more personal statement on her 2nd CD, produced by Dennis Fortune. Fortune also produced Raye’s debut recording project “Sistah Girl’s Lament”. E. Shawn Qaissaunee produced and arranged selections on “Between” as well. Between” was independently produced and recorded at Reeds Refuge Studio 505 in Wilmington.

Raye’s multi-genre influenced style brings new life to standards such as “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and “Where Were You” by Stevie Wonder, John Legend’s “Ordinary People” and the Beatles’ “She’s Leaving Home”. “Between” also includes an original spoken word tribute to Clifford Brown. “Raye will perform musical director and pianist Dennis Fortune.

“Between” is an eclectic collection of selections that convey the miraculous ability to feel joy even in the presence of life’s tribulations. Raye describes her work as a “personal artistic statement about living. It’s about transcendence without losing my song”.

Personnel:

Raye Jones Avery, vocals
Dennis Fortune, musical director, piano
Cliff Kellum, bass
Harry Butch Reed, drums
Lynn Riley, woodwinds
Darnell Miller, guitar/vocals

To complement the exhibition Posing Beauty in African American Culture, we are filling a wall of our entryway with portraits of our community members. 100 frames will slowly fill with photographs of locals, to add dimension to the portraits in the special exhibition itself. There are multiple scheduled events this fall/winter where visitors will have the opportunity to be photographed for this project. One of them is before Raye Jones Avery’s performance on October 24.

We’d love to include your face in the wall of local portraits. A local professional photographer, Joe McSetridge, will be at the Museum on Thursday evening, October 24 (6-8 p.m.) to shoot photographs. Participants will receive a digital copy, and also receive a print copy once the photographs come off the walls in 2020. It would be our honor to include your face in this project. If you are interested in participating, please sign up using the link in the ticket confirmation email.

Connected: Beauty is… Reception & Exhibition
Dec 12 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Connected: Beauty is... Reception & Exhibition

Using the camera as a tool for creative expression, Stay Focused puts the student in control of the narrative, challenging them to view the spaces around them in new ways in order to share perspectives that are important to them. Founded and facilitated by photographer Shannon Woodloe, Stay Focused covers the history and core elements of photography, culminating in a theme-based photography project.

The project, “Beauty is…,” will be the students’ photographic responses to the marketing billboard for the Museum’s exhibition Posing Beauty in African American Culture, which poses the questions, “What is beauty?”

A reception and exhibit of student works will be held December 12, 2019 from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.

This Connected Series program is being offered in partnership with Serviam Girl’s Academy and Children and Families First’s Community Schools program at Bancroft Elementary School.

ABOUT THE CONNECTED SERIES

Connected is a new program series featuring events produced by the community, for the community. All events are free and open to the public. Learn more.

Performance: Joel Ross Good Vibes
Feb 13 @ 8:00 pm

“…Ross’ precocious creativity, facility, and confidence were downright shocking. His style is so unique and developed that it changed my image of the vibraphone itself. Though his musicality [shone] through brightly, I was most impressed by the revolutionary way in which he approached the physicality of the instrument, reworking classic limitations as creative allowances.”

Chicago native Joel Ross has performed with historic and seasoned artists – Herbie Hancock, Louis Hayes, Christian McBride, and Stefon Harris – as well as with cutting-edge contemporaries like Ambrose Akinmusire, Gerald Clayton, and Marquis Hill. Twice selected as a Thelonious Monk Institute National All-Star and a 2013 YoungArts Jazz Finalist – he’s also had the opportunity to perform at the Brubeck, Monterey, Seattle, and Chicago Jazz Festivals -and- at internationally-celebrated venues like Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in New York, SF Jazz in San Francisco, and Club Vibrato in Los Angeles.

Playing the drum kit as early as three years of age, Ross learned other percussion instruments & approaches beginning in grade five, in his tenth year. When starting his work on Vibes, he engaged both classical and jazz works, and did so throughout high school. In his last year there, Ross also began playing the piano in a more serious way.

Ross recently completed a two-year fellowship with the Brubeck Institute Jazz Quintet in California. Winning first place at the 2016 BIAMP PDX Jazz Festival ‘Jazz Forward’ Competition, he was also a winner of the Keep an Eye International Jazz Award, in Amsterdam. A fitting addition to the Marquis Hill Blacktet – before their 2016 European tour – Ross has just recorded his own debut album “Good Vibes,” to be released in August. He will be performing, also, with his newly minted Joel Ross’ Good Vibes ensemble.

Performance: Pyxis Piano Quartet – Continental Bridges
Mar 12 @ 7:30 pm
Performance: Pyxis Piano Quartet - Continental Bridges @ Delaware Art Museum

With the Museum’s beautiful Chihuly Bridge overhead, Pyxis turns to music that spans time and geography and links composers to their homeland. Joaquín Turina’s Piano Trio is filled with the fire of Spain, and Zoltán Kodály’s Intermezzo draws on his beloved Hungarian folk tunes. The evening’s major work is Dvořák’s justly famous and masterful Piano Quartet in E-Flat Major.

At 7:30 p.m., a Museum curator will present a 15-minute pre-concert talk. You are also welcome to arrive early for dinner and light fare in the Museum’s Thronson Café. The concert begin at 8:00 and will feature complimentary desserts and coffee at intermission.

Season tickets are $90 for Museum Members, $105 for Non-Members, and $75 for students with a valid ID.
Individual tickets are $30 for Museum Members, $35 for Non-Members, and $25 for students.

About Pyxis Piano Quartet

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.”

Step Afrika! | Drumfolk
Apr 3 @ 8:00 pm
Step Afrika! | Drumfolk @ The Grand Opera House

: Back by Popular demand, Step Afrika! returns to Wilmington with its blend of the percussive tradition of stepping with African and contemporary dance. The Company’s newest creation, Drumfolk, inspired by the Stono Rebellion of 1739, explores this little-known event in American history that forever transformed African-American life and culture. When Africans lost the right to use their drums, their rhythms found their way into the body of the people, the Drumfolk. New percussive forms took root leading to the development of some of our country’s most distinct performance traditions like the ring shout, tap, and stepping.
