The Delaware Art Museum presents Different Views: Painters of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Delaware in Wilmington, a juried exhibition that runs through January 23, 2011. The exhibition features paintings from 38 members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and is the institute’s first juried art show in its 30-year history. The diverse paintings ranging from abstract expressionism to realism are a part of the Museum’s Outlooks Exhibition Series, which encourages community involvement in the creation of museum exhibitions.
After receiving more than 120 paintings from amateurs, former art professionals, and novice painters, The Osher Institute narrowed its selection to 38. The chosen 38 pieces span traditional and experimental techniques in oil, acrylic, watercolor and other media and encompass a diverse range of themes, including landscape and seascape, the figure, domestic and architectural scenes, and nature.
Different Views debuts on November 5 during Wilmington’s Art on the Town, when local cultural institutions offer extended hours and free admissions on the first Friday of each month. Admission fees for the museum are: Adults (19 – 59) $12, Seniors (60+) $10, Students (with valid ID) $6, Youth (7 – 18) $6, and Children (6 and under) free.
