Warbler Migration

Deirdre Murphy & Scott White are proud to announce the completion of their major public art commission titled Warbler Migration. This two year project stands 5.5’ hx 25’ w and is comprised of over 500 hand-cut and painted aluminum polygons & 30 stainless steel cast Orange Crowned Warblers. Warbler Migration was inspired by this shy species that resides in the Dublin ecosystem and depicts the migratory pattern and constellations by which they navigate.  The project was funded by Bay West Development for the City of Dublin, California at the Aster Apartments.

November Regional Juried Exhibition

Chris White Gallery
701 N Shipley St, Wilmington, DE 19801
Exhibition:  Friday, November 3 - Sunday, November 26, 2017
Reception: Friday, November 3, 6 - 9pm

"The works of art included in the Chris White Gallery’s November 2017 Regional Juried Exhibition represent the range in style, subject matter, and media seen in the submissions I reviewed. When making these selections, I strove to identify works of the highest quality in regards to both form and content. Similarly, I paid equal attention to all the various media I found represented—drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography. The included artwork explores the figure, the built and natural environment, materiality, and abstraction, and as such, is representative of the myriad styles and themes occupying the collective conscious. The aim of the resulting exhibition is to showcase the diverse contemporary art practices found in the region—Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC—today."          Juror:  Margaret Winslow (Curator of Contemporary Art, Delaware Art Museum)
