DE Division of the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship recipient Terrance Vann will show at the baby grand for the first Wilmington Art Loop of 2017 on February 3, 2017. The baby grand is located in The Grand Opera House at 818 N. Market Street, Wilmington, DE 19801. The reception will take place from 5-8pm.
The INNER VISIONS Art Show will feature twelve original works by Vann- all new and never before shown. Other notable Wilmington artists and musicians will give live performances throughout the event, including painters Alim Smith and Smashed Label, singer and pianist Jea Street, and DJ Ryan Foxx. Drinks will be available for purchase and refreshments will be provided by Chef Thug Life.
“When I was approached with the opportunity to show at an institution like The Grand, it pushed me to explore new concepts and challenge myself, because I really want the work I show in that space to be great,” says Vann. He continues, “I’ve been experimenting with the surrealist style, particularly what my contemporaries and I call ‘afro-surrealism’, and I’m excited to debut these new works at a longstanding Wilmington venue like the baby grand.”
To add to the night of art and culture at The Grand, artist Zach Bluett will also host an Art Loop reception in the Mainstage Gallery. After the Art Loop receptions, patrons are encouraged to stay for Grand Baile, a Latin Dance night upstairs in Studio 1.
