Mezzanine Gallery, Wilmington, DE
You are invited to my upcoming exhibition at the Mezzanine Gallery in Wilmington, DE. The opening reception is Friday, November 4th, 5-7 pm.
I am a recipient of a fellowship in Painting through the Delaware Division of the Arts. I was interviewed by Christopher Yasiejko and here’s an except of his article:
Linda Celestian’s love of water harkens to her childhood, when her father owned a 31-foot Richardson boat. They had a spot on a marina near her grandparents’ summer home. During her father’s annual two-week summer vacation, the family of five — Celestian has two sisters — would trace the Finger Lakes of Central New York on a boat whose dining room table converted into a bed.
That half-dozen years of summers spent afloat, Celestian learned to pay attention to the nature that surrounds her. As a full-time artist (and part-time art teacher) who’s been painting for 30 years, all of her senses inform her work.
You can read the article in it’s entirety here.
My paintings and works on glass will be displayed for the month of November. Here’s a video sneak peek of what I’ll be showing.
I wasn’t sure if it would be overkill to show some of my silk sculptures with paintings and glass but I think I might sneak a few in.
So I’m off to the studio to finish a fiber piece before my install date. I hope to see some old and new friends at the opening.
