Twenty Questions and Other Works on Paper by Ron Meick, October 7-28

Ron Meick“Twenty Questions” refers to the title of a series of prints in the show and is a playful reference to the game in which questions are asked about an object to discover its identity. Meick’s work explores the artists’ role in questioning the philosophical issues that define the meaning of an art object.

The exhibition will be on view from Oct. 7-28, with an opening reception on Friday, Oct. 7, from 5-7 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. Meick will attend to discuss various printmaking techniques and sounds utilized in this recent body of work.

Meick received a 2016 Individual Artist Fellowship in Works on Paper and will have additional pieces at the Award Winners XVI exhibition on view now through October 23 at the Biggs Museum of American Art in Dover.

Gallery Information

The Mezzanine Gallery presents solo exhibitions of work by Delaware artists in disciplines including painting, photography, sculpture, crafts, folk, and media arts.

This opportunity is available to Delaware's emerging and established visual artists who have won Individual Artist Fellowships, or have been chosen by the Division's annual Gallery Panel.

Visual Images Registry

The Visual Images Registry, located in the Division's office in Wilmington, contains digital images and information about Delaware visual artists. The Registry is available for review by artists, curators, art consultants, collectors, architects, and others who are interested in artists' work. Artists in the Visual Images Registry are also considered for exhibits in the Mezzanine Gallery. A panel of arts professionals review images each spring to choose exhibitors. To be a part of the review, artists need to update their file by March 1 every year.

Professionals in the visual arts who are Delaware residents, at least 18 years of age, and not enrolled in a degree-granting education program, may establish a file in the Visual Images Registry. Files must be updated within three years of their submission or they will be removed to keep the Registry current. The Division does not apply a selection process for this service. All images will be accepted as submitted. There is no deadline to submit digital images.

Artists interested in having work included in the Visual Images Registry, may download the application and send it in with the requisite digital images.
