For 40 years The Delaware Contemporary has upheld its commitment to bring to the community the most innovative expressions of contemporary art. At the epicenter of what we do stands a devoted group of staff who work tirelessly to create exciting exhibitions, education programming, special events, deliver our marketing, manage our website, keep the building secure, and welcome visitors to the galleries. In the honor of our upcoming 40th anniversary, The Delaware Contemporary will showcase the artistic talents of our staff in the heart of the museum, the E. Avery Draper Gallery. Our staff members are not only dedicated and talented in their fields, but also active visual artists. This exhibition offers visitors a wide variety of nuanced and intriguing visual experiences in various media and processes such as photography, painting, fiber arts, and printmaking. Participating staff members include: Paul Andreas, Wenlu Bao, Jillian Decker, Morgan J. Hamilton, Mary Ann McClone, Tatiana Michels, Meagan Mika, Tia Santana, Kate Testa, John Webb, Courtney Widdoes, and Willie Yao. 100% of the proceeds of works available for sale will go back to the museum’s exhibition and education programming.
