Opposites Attract
October 30 - December 3, 2019

A little tension can sometimes be a good thing. This month the artists at Gallery One are exploring the idea of opposites and how they can be attractive, at the same time creating “opposition”. Most of us are familiar with the color wheel and how the colors directly “opposite” each other are considered complementary, meaning that placed next to one another they create the strongest contrast and appeal in a painting. Though, when “mixed” they cancel each other out into a muddy gray (for example red and green).

Dark Shadows
October 2 - October 30, 2019

This month’s theme at Gallery One is not as ominous as it sounds. Artists have long embraced the shape and mood that creates beauty in the shadow. The play of light against dark helps to define the dimensions and heightens the drama of both the individual elements in a painting as well as the overall mood of the composition.

In My Backyard
May 1 - May 28, 2019

A backyard is a yard at the back of a house, common in suburban developments in the western world.

The Color Purple
January - February 2019

This month the artists at Gallery One embrace a color as a theme. While artists love COLOR, sometimes "The Color Purple" can be intimidating. To the viewer it can seem unnatural or aggressive - it lacks the familiarity of say a blue or a cream. But that makes purple unique. Purple has been seen symbolically as the color of royalty, power and mystery, with various shades having different meanings and feelings and evoking these energies in viewers.

Light Matters
November 28 - January 1

This month the artists at Gallery One embrace a theme intrinsic to all “Art” - “Light”. Light can be in all its forms, from the straightforward depiction of its illuminating effects to the more metaphorical emotions that the word Light conveys. This idea is summed up in artist Jeanne Mueller’s sentiment, “Do you feel happy if you wake up to a sunrise where the sun is peeping out as if to say, “Good Morning” rather than a gloomy, cloudy day? I know I do!  Another day is dawning and with it comes a new day filled with new adventures in life. “Sunrise at Cape Henlopen State Park” is Jeanne Mueller’s oil painting of the sun coming up over the ocean - always different and always beautiful.

The Shape of Things
October 31 -December 4

Initially, most of us identify an object by its shape. Artist Joyce Condry recalls “a beginning drawing class decades ago, the instructor told us to look for shapes in our subject matter such as seeing a house as a rectangle, the roof as a triangle, an orange as a circle, etc.  This month the artists at Gallery One go “back to basics” andexplore “The Shape of Things”.

Reflections

Sanctuary
May 30 - June 28

Sanctuaries are generally a place of refuge and protection. Delaware is gifted with many areas of sanctuary. “The peacefulness of our waters has become a sanctuary for me and everyone that lives here. Our beaches and nature vistas captivate me” and is reflected in Dianne Shearon’s acrylic “Tidal Marsh”. Artist Cheryl Wisbrock began “Assateague Daybreak”, acrylic, “on my easel before dawn, hoping to capture wildlife and savoring the quiet time in this pristine sanctuary.  I was alone when I set up, and was disappointed to find that I was still alonelong after sunrise... no ponies, foxes, bunnies. Absolutely nothing appeared in the early hours. However, I will always cherish the peaceful time enjoyed in this nature preserve watching daylight grow.”
