The Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of work by Denise Dumont during the month of June. Recent Paintings will be on view from June 3-24 with an opening reception on Friday, June 3 from 5 – 7 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public and Ms. Dumont will be in attendance to discuss her work.

A landscape painter, Dumont paints both urban and coastal scenes in an impressionist style. She works mostly on location in the plein air tradition. Dumont explains, “I return often to the places I feel most connected to and aim to convey more than simply how a place looks, but some aspect of its character and how it feels to me.” Learn more about Denise Dumont with our YouTube Meet the Artist video series.

The Mezzanine Gallery is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington, DE 19801 and open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The Gallery schedule of upcoming artists through August 2016 is available on our website.
