The Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery is pleased to present Just Above Water, an exhibition of photographs by Mark Houlday. The exhibition will be on view from July 1-29. Please note: the Mezzanine Gallery will be closed on Monday, July 4.

The opening reception will be Friday, July, 8 from 5-7 p.m. in the Carvel State Office Building. The reception is free and open to the public and Mr. Houlday will be in attendance to discuss his series of low angle photographs of ponds, rivers, and bays in Sussex County captured from the bow of his kayak.

Mr. Houlday has been a serious amateur photographer for several decades. Although his subjects and method of photography have evolved over time, his love for this art form remains steadfast. His current body of work is about his connection with water and the natural environment and his concern over the on-going degradation of our ecosystem.

Mr. Houlday’s work has been shown in numerous group shows. His work has been exhibited at the Newark Arts Alliance, Biggs Museum, Helen Graham Cancer Center, Cecil County Arts Council, and the Yorklyn Art Center. Learn more about Mark Houlday with our YouTube Meet the Artist video series.
