GRAND GALLERIES




Calling all artists!

Get your artwork in front of adoring eyes by hosting your own art exhibit and reception at The Grand.

We are actively seeking artists to exhibit their work for the coming year in both galleries. Along with the opportunity to show your work for a month, artists will take part in the City of Wilmington’s Art On the Town, also known as “Art Loop,” on first Fridays. All shows will be listed in Out & About Magazine, distributed to local businesses and galleries, and on the Art Loop and The Grand’s websites.

Not only will you be getting exposure and potential sales for your work, but you will be giving enrichment and enjoyment to patrons, performing artists, staff, and other visitors.

Hannibal Lee -- [Active 10/1/19 through 10/28/19]

Hannibal Lee

“Meet Hannibal Lee” (Art Loop Reception 10/4/19 in the baby grand Gallery)

Meet Hannibal Lee: Translations in Textiles

Hannibal Lee began his training in the Brandywine School tradition. His lifelong career was launched under the tutelage of Carolyn Wyeth, sister of the famed Andrew Wyeth. Hannibal studied with Carolyn in the studio of N.C. Wyeth in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.

Training originally in the tradition of realism (where he honed his amazing drawing skills), then moving toward abstract in watercolors and oils, Hannibal began to express his art in a unique way, after being introduced to textiles and fabrics by a friend.

Hannibal Lee’s Translations transcend classical art media: The artist has created a stunning new medium with bas-relief textile and mixed media compositions. Many custom commissions have combined fabrics, artifacts and themes from the patron’s personal life.

Hannibal Lee’s art has been exhibited at the Delaware Art Museum (Wilmington) and the Guild Hall (East Hampton, NY). One man shows include the Cambria County Art Center (Johnston, PA) and the Gibson Island Yacht Club (Gibson Island, MD). His artwork is on permanent display at the Hershey Library (Hershey, PA), the Alfred I. DuPont Institute (Wilmington, DE), and the Methodist Country House (Wilmington, DE), as well as in many private collections throughout the United States and Europe.

Hannibal lives on the Nanticoke River on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and maintains a working studio near the Wicomico River in Salisbury, Maryland.
