Delaware Division of the Arts | Department of State | Kent County | New Castle County | Sussex County | Date Posted: Tuesday, June 26, 2018



On view from July 6-27, 2018
Free closing reception on Friday, July 27 at 5 p.m.

Wilmington, Del. (June 26, 2018) – Jason Weaver: Works on Paper, an exhibition showing a range of work from academic figure studies to people in contemporary street settings, will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery from July 6-27, 2018. A free closing reception to meet the artist will be held on Friday, July 27 from 5-7 p.m.

Weaver’s main subject matter is the human form and he typically works in charcoal, chalk or graphite on paper.

Weaver says, “I enjoy the challenge of capturing a mood. The overall goal is to bring the viewer in, and even if for a moment, relate it to the subject. The human form has a sort of organic symmetry that is difficult to capture but is rewarding when it strikes a chord with the viewer.”

The Mezzanine Gallery is open to the public weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and  is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington.
