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.

Miyamoto is Black Enough
Jun 6 @ 8:00 pm

Speaking truth to power on subjects ranging on colonialism and slavery, police brutality, gentrification, gun violence, and being black in America, MiBE challenged, protested, looked inward and outward, insisted on waking us up from apathy, to feel the power of words to the beat and heat of the music, to have imprinted in our memory the pain, the anger, the fight we have to fight. Bonair-Agard sent the audience into the night with one final refrain, and etched into our minds an anthem for a social movement–“BE ALIVE, BE BLACK, BURN, BUILD.” – Arts and Culture Texas

Miyamoto is Black Enough is a collaborative exploration of meaning and conversation, named after Ariana Miyamoto, a Japanese national who grew up as a self-described mixed race “hafu,” the child of an African American father and Japanese mother. After winning Miss Universe Japan 2015, many Japanese expressed concern at her lack of “pure” parentage—that she was not Japanese enough.

In Miyamoto is Black Enough, a contemporary band that boasts two hafu of their own—a Trinidadian-Brooklynite Black man, and an Irish/Finnish/Swedish hip-hop influenced drummer—Miyamoto is certainly Black enough.

This work celebrating Miyamoto’s legacy is a blend of hard driving rhythms and biting social commentary that utilizes steelpan, cello, drums, and poetry/vocals. Drawing from a melange of musical styles, M is Black Enough forms a brash symphony that nods the head, moves the feet, and asks the listener/viewer to challenge and disturb her own comfort. The resulting work is a bold narrative about people, justice, struggle, joy, and celebration.

Miyamoto is both a building frenzy of excitement and a cerebral jaunt through one’s own belief systems, leaning towards a joy that refuses itself unless it is foundation’d in justice.

Four remarkable artists form the cohort that makes this project possible: Andy Akiho as composer and performer on his trademark steelpans; Roger Bonair-Agard with poetry and spoken word; Jeffrey Zeigler as cellist; and Sean Dixon on drums.

“…'(M)iyamoto,’ incandescent in its synergy between music and poetry, is already more than good enough.” -LA Times

Music by ANDY AKIHO
Text by ROGER BONAIR-AGARD
Performed by ANDY AKIHO, steelpan; ROGER BONAIR-AGARD, vocals; SEAN DIXON, drums; & JEFFREY ZEIGLER, cello
Produced by National Sawdust

This engagement of Miyamoto is Black Enough is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Painting in Plein Air with Gouache (2-day workshop)
Jun 15 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
Painting in Plein Air with Gouache (2-day workshop)

A two-day workshop in painting outdoors with gouache (opaque watercolor). Techniques will include choosing a landscape composition, gouache paint handling, mixing a wide range of colors from a simplified palette, and creating textures for trees, grasses and other landscape elements.

Paint provided, students bring remaining supplies. All levels.
Instructor: Charley Parker

Supply List

  • Gouache paint will be provided for the workshop: Enough paint in the recommended “core palette” colors will be provided as needed on the workshop days. This will allow you to try working in gouache before making an investment in paint.
  • Other suggested materials:
    • Brushes: Short handled synthetic brushes labeled for mixed media or acrylic (stiffer than watercolor, not as stiff as oil)
      • 1/2 inch flat wash (or shader) – ideally, 2 of these (for dark and light colors)
      • 1/4 inch flat wash (or #6 or #8 flat shader) – ideally, 2 of these
      • #6 or #8 round – ideally, 2 of these
    • Paper: Heavy (140lb / 300gsm) watercolor or mixed media paper — hot press, vellum or cold press surface (not rough). A nice inexpensive choice is Strathmore Series 400 Mixed Media pads, 140lb, vellum surface.  Either 9×12” or 6×8”.
    • Palette or mixing tray: Watercolor palette or mixing tray with mixing area. You will need more mixing area than color wells.
    • Small spray bottle (mister) for keeping your palette wet.
    • Water containers: Water jar for rinsing brushes (a medium size plastic peanut butter jar works well), 3/4 full of water. It’s also nice to have a small jar (like a jam jar) for clean water. You might also want a little spice jar for holding brushes while you paint.
    • Sketchbook for initial sketch, & pencil or markers
    • Portable easel, pochade box, or other support for painting outside. The simplest arrangement is a small drawing board or lapboard and a folding chair. Try it at home to make sure it works for you. You may want a second chair or folding table to lean your board against.
    • Clips — Office clips or potato chip bag clips for holding your paper on your drawing board
    • Paper towels —You will only need a few
    • — Sunscreen, hat, snacks, drinks, or whatever you need for spending a few hours outside.
  • When buying your own gouache paint:
    • Some good brands are Winsor & Newton Designer’s Gouache, Holbein Artist’s Gouache and M. Graham Artists Gouache. The “core palette” as provided in the workshop (15ml tubes):
      • Ultramarine Blue
      • Cadmium Yellow Pale or Cadmium Yellow Light (not “Cadmium Yellow Light Hue”)
      • Perylene Maroon (Winsor & Newton), or Alizarin Crimson
      • Burnt Sienna
      • Phthalo Green (or Viridian)
      • Permanent White (Titanium White) – (37ml tube), you will use more white than other colors.

Performance: Los Pleneros de la 21
Jul 11 @ 8:00 pm

Special Guest: El Grupo Ámbar de Delaware

Put on your dancing shoes for the infectious sounds of Puerto Rican bomba and plena! After the performance, enjoy a dance party featuring DJ Willie until 11 pm.

Los Pleneros de la 21, the premier East Harlem-based performing ensemble and non-profit community organization, was founded in 1983 by Juan J. ‘Juango’ Gutiérrez (National Endowment on the Arts’ Heritage Fellow, 1996) and the legendary Master Plenero Marcial Reyes Arvelo. Having toured extensively both nationally and internationally for over three decades, ‘LP21’ is considered by many as New York’s preeminent Bomba and Plena ambassadors to the world, bringing Puerto Rican culture to Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Latin America, Australia, Berlin, The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, The Kremlin (former Soviet Union) and countless other international cities and prominent venues.

The LP21 ensemble, an exceptional mix of Puerto Rican Folk Masters and professional musicians, are all united in their common cause to expose the importance of traditional Puerto Rican music, has pioneered the road for bomba and plena performance and is responsible for expanding platforms for continued performance, learning and the presentation of Bomba and Plena—paving the way for many other musicians who now share their stage.

LP21’s latest album, Los Pleneros de la 21 Live at Pregones: 35 years of Bomba & Plena (Truth Revolution Records, Nov 2018), is an ode to the group’s long arduous yet satisfying journey – milestone indeed, of a lifetime of work, blood, sweat, tears and laughter of countless dedicated bomberos, pleneros, educators and cultural advocates, raising their spear in the name of Puerto Rican Bomba & Plena, and the makers of this tradition. The album marks a new era for LP21, with a younger generation of musicians taking leadership in re-envisioning LP21’s style and persona

LP21’s landmark community-based cultural and educational programs, such as Bomba and Plena Community Workshops for adult and kids, Bomba and Plena In the house for NYC school children, and Cultural Legacy Programs, have created a common space for the recognition, education and practice of Puerto Rican culture and identity. While in Wilmington they will be working with students from the Latin American Community Center.

Performance: Fanm d’Ayiti by Nathalie Joachim with the Spektral Quartet
Jul 25 @ 8:00 pm

Fanm d’Ayiti (Women of Haiti) is an evening-length work for voice, flute, string quartet and electronics developed by composer/performer Nathalie Joachim. Commissioned by St. Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Liquid Music Series, Fanm d’Ayiti is a celebration of some of Haiti’s most iconic yet under recognized female artists, as well as an exploration of Joachim’s Haitian heritage. The project features original songs incorporating the recorded voices of Joachim’s grandmother and the girls choir of her family’s home farming village of Dantan; new arrangements of songs by some of the greatest known female voices in Haitian history; and recorded interviews with these artists about their lives fighting for social justice and uplifting the people of Haiti. Developed in a two year Liquid Music Virtual Residency, Fanm d’Ayiti premiered in March 2018 with members of SPCO in St. Paul, MN, and will be presented in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 season with Spektral Quartet.

Flutist and composer Nathalie Joachim (Eighth Blackbird, Flutronix), “an edgy multi-genre performance artist who has long been pushing boundaries with her flute” (The Washington Post)

SPEKTRAL QUARTET actively pursues a vivid conversation between exhilarating works of the traditional canon and those written this decade, this year, or this week. With the New York Times writing that “they have everything: a supreme technical command that seems to come easily, a capacity to make complicated music clear, and, most notably…an ability to cast a magic spell”, Spektral is known for creating seamless connections across centuries, drawing in the listener with charismatic deliveries, interactive concert formats, an up-close atmosphere, and bold, inquisitive programming.

“Eat Little and Live Long” a meal with Makeda Thomas
Aug 15 @ 7:30 pm

From the artist: “When a house fire destroyed my 100+ year old Brooklyn home earlier this year – and with it, not only the entire “analog” archive of my twenty year career in dance, but all of the research and documentation for my newest work – I grieved the loss of intellectual and cultural memory, and its impact on future work. More than before, I value embodied knowledges – not as ephemeral – but as the only true materiality.” “`Eat Little and Live Long’ is a new archive; a gathering that merges food, dance, and storytelling; an opportunity with artists and supporters of my work; a way to share and to practice; to make good on the ancestral knowledge to transform stories of loss into tales of togetherness”

Menu to be announced!

Performance: The Light Fantastical by Makeda Thomas
Aug 16 @ 8:00 pm

Exhilarating modern dance performance that explores Caribbean culture

The Museum is thrilled to host world-renowned Trinidadian dancer and choreographer, Makeda Thomas, on August 16. During this 40-minute performance in Fusco Grand Hall, Thomas and two dancers from her company will perform a captivating modern dance titled The Light Fantastical, a contemporary exploration of Caribbean culture through dance. This improvisational piece is imbued with metaphor for art and technology that comes out of Afrofuturist culture—or more appropriately, “Caribbean Futurisms.” It considers how Caribbean cultural forms navigate time and space, and innovate new histories, sciences, and aesthetics. As part of the performance, the Museum’s Fusco Grand Hall will be transformed into a space that will pull viewers into The Light!

The Light Fantastical will be preceded by a special 20-minute performance by professional dancers from Wilmington’s own Pieces of a Dream Dance Company.

“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”.

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.
