The Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery presents Patterned Planes, an exhibition of paintings by Diane Lorio. The exhibition will be on view from September 2-30. Please note the Gallery will be closed on Monday, September 5 for Labor Day.

The opening reception will be Friday, September 9 from 5-7 p.m. in the Carvel State Office Building. The reception is free and open to the public and Ms. Lorio will be in attendance to discuss how her recent work reinterprets patterns in organic, social, economic, and mathematical contexts. This series shows patterning in a larger sense: in biological formats such as DNA, in mathematical systems that describe the world, and in the patterns of our choices.

Lorio also received a 2016 Individual Artist Fellowship in Painting. View additional paintings at the annual Award Winners XVI exhibition, which recognizes the 2016 Individual Artist Fellows‘ combined artistic accomplishments. The exhibit is on view now through October 23 at the Biggs Museum of American Art, Dover.

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.
