At  the Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, DE



March 23, 2019 - August 4, 2019

The Lopers are among the most celebrated of Delaware’s visual fine artists. Their styles, though different, are distinct for their approach to form and color and show the acknowledgment of modernist traditions from the turn of the 20th century. 

The exhibit will include a video featuring Edward Loper Jr., which is the first video produced under the Senior Artists Initiative Museum Video Project.

At the Brandywine Museum


In September 2019, the Brandywine River Museum of Art will present an exhibition of the Halloween-themed paintings of renowned Philadelphia artist Peter Paone (born 1936).  Halloween has long been a subject of fascination for the artist, and in the last decade he has produced a series of works devoted to the theme. Richly painted in jewel tones and textured surfaces, these works give visual form to his view of Halloween as a “day of denial,” one in which people have the freedom to adopt different personas that often reflect their inner desires. Paone creates paintings of extravagantly costumed figures whose mask-like expressions create an unsettling mood.

Peter Paone is an SAI Senior Artist. His resume, gallery, and video
