Lauren E. Peters and Ken Mabrey: ON BEING HUMAN

October 5, 2018 - November 28, 2018

Event Navigation

Opening reception to be held October 5, 5-9 pm during Art Loop. 

Lauren E. Peters

Peters’ work addresses the fluidity and multifaceted nature of identity. Each painting is based on a single photograph, utilizing a variety of clothing and props to switch between various personas. While the costumes may be thought of as disguises, they are created to bring the different realities beneath our “normal” appearance to light. 

Lauren E. Peters holds a BA in painting and has been working in the genre of self-portraiture for the past three years. She was awarded the 2018 Delaware Division of the Arts Fellowship for painting in the “Emerging Artist” category. 

 

Ken Mabrey

Ken Mabrey’s linear, expressive brushwork recalls the work of Reginald Marsh and Peter Paul Rubens with fantastical and voluptuous figures. His playful sketches, referred to as “mark-makings,” contain vast color range.
