The Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of original work by Michael Quattrociocchi from April 2 – 24, 2015. The Gallery, open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington. (The Gallery will be closed on April 3, 2015 due to a state holiday.) A reception will be held for the exhibition where the public can meet the artist on Friday, April 10, 2015 from 5:00-8:00 p.m.

The exhibition, titled Point of View – Imaginative Fine Woodworkiing, presents a selection of fine wood craftwork. Quattrociocchi expands on traditional craft and artisanship through the use of narrative and figural accents married to traditional casework types. His work includes small chests and sets of drawers that are enhanced through the use of decorative wood species and sculptural figurative additions.

Michael Quattrociocchi is an award-winning wood craft artisan based in Milford, Delaware. He has shown his work throughout the state including at the Rehoboth Art League and The Biggs Museum. He has been featured on WHYY’s First program and received numerous awards and recognition for his outstanding work.
