Warner Gallery

The Warner Gallery welcomes visitors to the O'Brien Arts Center, which opened to the public in October 2004 with an exhibition of 20th Century American masterworks from the Payson Collection. Each year, four visiting artist exhibitions are on view to the St. Andrew's community and the public in the Warner Gallery. Each exhibition opens with a reception and gallery talk by the artist.

For more information, please call Mr. John McGiff at (302) 285-4215.

Artist Talk & Reception:
Friday, January 17, 2014
6:45 p.m.

Artist Statement:
I am interested in my response to daily stimuli and the subsequent creation of harmonious compositions of materials, forms, and surfaces. I seek to communicate realizations of what I personally believe to be interesting and congruous material arrangements and spatial orders, using the work as an exploration into a personally affected environment. In the process of creating and assessing my work I seek to further clarify my own criteria used for evaluating my environment. I have found that my reaction to an object in my surroundings may have a lasting impact on my aesthetic preferences even though it may not be consciously recognized at the time, only later emerging as a visual motif in my work.
