Showcased in this exhibition are recent gifts that have significantly expanded the University’s holdings in contemporary art, including sculptures and works on paper by Frank Gerritz and Lisa Hoke, paintings by Floyd Coleman, Donald McLaughlin and Peter Williams; and drawings by Felrath Hines and Elmer Bischoff. The acquisitions by these and other artists on view reflect the generous gift from collector Donald Rothfeld of several works, as well as gifts from Dorothy Hines, Floyd Coleman and others. We are also indebted to friends and donors who made possible the acquisition of Peter Williams, Absolutely Hilarious.

he Old College Gallery is housed in Old College, a National Historic Register building constructed in 1834, on the north campus of the University of Delaware in Newark. Following renovation, Old College Gallery reopened in fall 2010 at the home for the University of Delaware art collection.

Highlights on view include significant works by Brandywine School artists Howard Pyle, Stanley Arthurs, Frank Schoonover, and N.C. Wyeth; Pre-Columbian and Southwest Native American ceramics and American sculpture and painting of the 20th century. A select collection of Russian icons from the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries is also on view.
