In November 2011, the Delaware Art Museum began celebrating 100 years of supporting the visual arts in its community through its collection, exhibitions, and programs. To commemorate the Museum’s past annual exhibitions of painting and crafts—combined to form the Biennial in 1989—a juried Centennial will be on view from October 2012 through January 2013. The exhibition will feature a variety of media—drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, video, and installation—and include artists living either within the State of Delaware or within 100 miles of the Museum. Guest-juried by John B. Ravenal, the Sydney and Frances Lewis Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, this centennial exhibition celebrates the tradition of juried exhibitions in Delaware and the surrounding region while identifying the artistic trends that will characterize the region’s future. –
