Edge of Destiny, an exhibition of paintings by Terrance Vann, will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery from March 2-29, 2018. A free opening reception to meet the artist will be held on Friday, March 2 from 5-7 p.m.
Wilmington artist Terrance Vann received a 2017 Delaware Division of the Arts Emerging Fellowship in Painting. This exhibition features all new work and some of Vann’s most ambitious paintings to date. His themes often deal with the human experiences of development and awareness in hopes to inspire critical thoughts from the audience. He describes his style as “living at the intersection of street art and fine art.” Several of the works feature complex fragmented characters painted on a large scale with colorful graffiti-esque backgrounds. Utilizing symbols and words, Vann’s works promote mindfulness and tell stories. Will Power, a portrait of Vann’s significant other, Keyanna, is a tribute to her, illustrating this new direction in his work.
The Mezzanine Gallery, open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington.
