THE MEZZANINE GALLERY TO EXHIBIT RHYTHMIC CHAOS BY SUSAN BENARCIK
For Immediate Release
The Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works on paper and small sculptures by Susan Benarcik during the month of March. Rhythmic Chaos will be on view from March 4-24, with an opening reception on Friday, March 4 from 5-7 p.m.
Benarcik, a sculptor and printmaker, is inspired by the rhythm, harmony, chaos and balance in the patterns and shapes designed by nature. Rather than recreating the work of nature, she borrows forms from nature and transforms ordinary materials into dimensional sculpture and patterns that possess a balance of symmetry, imperfection, and consistent ‘otherness’. Benarcik’s love of horticulture and design inform a series of botanical drawings of fictitious plants that are also included in the show.

The Mezzanine 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. The Gallery schedule of upcoming artists through August 2016 is now available on our website.
