The Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery is pleased to extend the current exhibition of original work by Harold Kalmus through June 19, 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. A second reception will be held for the exhibition where the public can meet the artist on Friday, June 5, 2015 from 5:00-8:00 p.m.
Harold Kalmus will show a variety of his figurative sculpture including large scale portraits, smaller full figure compositions, and figure study reliefs. Described as a “contemporary realist,” his style reflects a mastery of anatomy. Kalmus injects a narrative or story through the use of the figure, symbols and gestures.
Harold Kalmus received his BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art, concentrating on the study of sculpture, art theory and anatomy. He has kept an active studio in the historic community of Arden, Delaware.
