Sally Van Orden’s Silk Paintings in the Mezzanine Gallery in September
Sally Van Orden will present an exhibition titled Fossilized Memories in the Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery from September 7-28, 2012. The Gallery, open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington. There will be a reception to meet the artist on Friday, September 7 from 5-8 p.m. as part of Wilmington’s Art Loop.
