The Grand Galleries are a great opportunity for area artists to gain more exposure as well as offer enrichment and enjoyment to patrons, performing artists, artistic partners and staff.
The Grand is actively seeking artists to exhibit their work during the coming year. Along with the opportunity to show for the month, artists will also take part in the City of Wilmington's Art on the Town, also known as the "Art Loop" on first Fridays.

Cody Bluett: “Anybody Home”
'Anybody Home?' Places and spaces, familiar yet unknown, that speak of stillness, nostalgia, and the fragility of memory in everyday homes through oil and mixed media. Touching on notions of isolation and voyeurism, ‘Anybody Home?’ builds upon a body of work from Cody Bluett’s 2018 exhibition ‘Neighborhood Watch.’
My name is Cody Bluett and I am a visual fine artist and sound artist focusing on landscape and abstraction as well as pen and ink illustration. I received my BFA in Painting from the Tyler School of Art in 2015 and my PA Teacher's Certification for Art K-12 in 2016. I currently teach full time at Liguori Academy in Philadelphia, PA. My work primarily focuses on landscape and the dialect between natural or man-made, using specific materials to explore ideas of beauty and serenity, but also toxicity and waste. Both the image and the material come together to form a subtle sublimity that aims at the social and political viewpoints people have on their environments. Whilst creating conversations about the everyday life through concepts of the sublime, voyeurism, technology, and nature, my goal is to provide a lasting visual and aural experience for the viewer.
