Writing in 3D: Creating Landscape, Place, and Setting

Landscape not only creates a distinct sense of place in our writing, it opens up metaphors, provides context, and offers detail and nuance to both fiction and nonfiction. How do we develop this writing? What do we choose to focus on?  This workshop will offer examples both in fine art and (weather permitting) in nature and cityscape and will help writers at all stages of their projects and their writing careers develop setting – indoors or out – as a physical presence in their writing. This session is for participants interested in fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. *Note: This workshop may include some walking on gravel paths in the Museum’s Sculpture Garden and standing outside.

Damsels Not In Distress

The Art of Perspective

The success of any work of fiction or narrative nonfiction depends almost entirely on its narrative strategy. Not only which character(s) tell(s) the story, from what vantage point, in the past or present, but why those choices are optimal and how they contribute to the overall effect the author is aiming for. In this session, we will begin by defining narrative strategy, then discuss its relationship to an author’s choice of perspective and his/her manipulation of narrative distance. This session is for participants interested in fiction.

The Art of Perspective: Who Tells the Story by Christopher Castellani is available for purchase in the Museum Store.

Worth a Thousand Words: Making Poetry from Art

“Ekphrasis is, basically, ‘Description’ in Greek. An ‘ekphrastic’ poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art. Through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the ‘action’ of a painting or sculpture, the poet may amplify and expand its meaning. A notable example is ‘Ode on a Grecian Urn,’ in which the poet John Keats speculates on the identity of the lovers who appear to dance and play music, simultaneously frozen in time and in perpetual motion…” ~Poetry Foundation, glossary term. In this workshop, we will do some practice exercises, talk about the definition and joys of Ekphrastic writing, and visit the Pre-Raphaelite Gallery to write about a work of art of our choosing. This is a kick-start for any poet that can be used for years to come. This session is for participants interested in poetry.

Exploring Delaware’s Literary History

Not only had American literary artists like Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Twain, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Hart Crane, and F. Scott Fitzgerald played roles in Delaware’s literary history, and interacted with our local poets and authors, our past literary artists also provided insights into our local and national social and cultural environment. Who were John Lofland, George Alfred Townsend, Margaret E. Chandler, Anne Parrish, John Biggs Jr, to name only a few? This workshop will explore Delaware’s rich literary tradition. Open to writers and non-writers.

Docent Tour of The Original Mad Man: Illustrations by Mac Conner

This comprehensive and lively installation explores the work of one of America’s original “Mad Men.” McCauley (“Mac”) Conner (born 1913) created advertising campaigns for a variety of products during the decade when the advertising industry was at its height and centered on Madison Avenue. His illustrations for leading women’s magazines such as Redbook and McCall’s animated a wide range of popular literature, from romantic fiction and detective stories, to topics of import such as Cold War anxiety and juvenile delinquency. His work is a “time capsule” of an era when commercial artists helped to redefine American style and culture.

Shattering Time: Alternate Structures for Personal Essay and Memoir

One of the biggest difficulties for those writing creative nonfiction–whether a single personal essay or a full-length memoir– is how to structure the experience, which often centers around a significant person or event. Typically writers “begin at the beginning” and move chronologically though time, adhering to the order of events as they happened. Often, though, this chronological time line creates the organizational problems that so overwhelm the writer. Participants in this workshop will learn a number of unique, fun, alternatives to the chronological time line–along with examples–that will infuse new life–and structure–into the personal essay or memoir. This session is for participants interested in creative nonfiction or memoir.

Instructor: Maribeth Fischer

Maribeth Fischer is the author of  two novels, The Language of Goodbye (Dutton 2001), and The Life You Longed For (Simon & Schuster, 2007) She has published essays in such journals as The Iowa Review, Creative Nonfiction and The Yale  Review and  has received two Pushcart Prizes for her essays: “Stillborn,” 1994 and “The Fiction Writer,” 2014.

Picture It! Using Collage to Shape Your Story

How do visuals inform and inspire our writing? In this workshop, we would use found images via magazines, art catalogues, and other print media to create a collage that represents a work of fiction. We can examine collages, brainstorm ideas for a piece of fiction (either short fiction or a larger work) and then use the collages to inspire an original piece of work started in class. This session is for participants interested in fiction.

Instructor: Jessa Mendez

Jessa Marie Mendez is a Nuyorican writer and editor currently living in Wilmington, Delaware. Her most recent project, Rough Magick, an anthology that she co-edited with award-winning author Francesca Lia Block, was included in Luna Luna Magazine’s roundup, “40 Books Published in 2015 That Should Be On Your Shelf.” She has appeared in the Wilmington edition of the national reading series Listen to Your Mother and performed original work at the Delaware Art Museum in partnership with the Latin American Community Center and Delaware Shakespeare Festival.

Sunday Matinee & Film Discussion: The Best of Everything (1959, 121 minutes)
Sep 10 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Discussion led by Shelly Reuben

During the years before she was published, Shelly Reuben worked at various advertising agencies in New York City and experienced first-hand the excitement and drama of life as it is portrayed in The Best of Everything. In this romantic movie, three ambitious women of 1950s Manhattan contend with romantic disappointments, office politics, and the threat that their dreams for a fulfilling career will be cut short by marriage, children, and inertia. Inspired by Mac Conner’s illustrations, this screening and talk will draw comparisons between Conner’s imagery of women and the lifestyle, fashion, and careers of women.

Connected: The Day Before Tomorrow Live Performance
Sep 16 @ 7:00 pm

By Emad Jano Hemede. Dance choreographed by Diane Sharp-Nachsin and performed by SHARP Dance Company.

The Day Before Tomorrow is an interactive work of art by Syrian visual artist Emad “Jano” Hemede, a former international artist-in-residence through the University of Delaware’s Art Bridging Cultures program and the English Language Insitute, with choreography by Diane Sharp-Nachsin and performed by SHARP Dance Company. Located in the outdoor labyrinth at the Delaware Art Museum, the live performance depicts the beauty of Syria and the destruction of war through a landscape of flour.

In the first of two performances, Jano will use flour as a medium for creating art. In the second performance, a company of dancers will “destroy” the art, inviting the audience to experience how difficult it is to create beauty and how fleeting existence truly is.

This performance is part of the Museum’s Connected Series, which features events produced by the community, for the community. This event is free and open to the public.

** This event will be cancelled if inclement weather. Please check delart.org for updates.**

About Emad Jano Hemede

Syrian artist Emad “Jano” Hemede is a former international artist-in-residence through the University of Delaware’s Art Bridging Cultures program and the English Language Insitute. Born and raised in Aleppo, Syria, Jano made his living in the capital, Damascus, where he ran a small gallery in one of the oldest, and busiest, parts of the city. Jano regularly met art lovers from all around the world. The experience of connecting with people from different cultures through art is the inspiration for this artistic philosophy: communicating the historically and artistically rich realities of Syria through creative aestheticism that is universal in its inclusiveness.

With the outbreak of the Syrian Civil War in 2011, Jano moved to the United States, where he currently resides. He has since been working on a number of projects that share deep curiosity about the United States with nostalgic yet hopeful faith in the colors, stories, and futures of his home country of Syria.

A sculptor and oil painter by tradition, Jano incorporates acrylic paints into his art because they are water based. To Jano, water symbolizes the essence of life, a valued commodity often not available to his native people. His future work will describe his dream of the Syrian future, “which is nothing but its beautiful past.” Learn more at http://www.emadjano.com/.
