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 11 at 6:45 p.m.
As an artist, paper has always been my safe haven. It's surface acting as a creative flint strip to my imagination. Paper is the first place I go to explore my thoughts and ideas. But paper does not only act as a place to find inspiration. For the past 10 years, much of my work has been executed almost exclusively on paper. Working Papers explores my relationship to paper as a surface for a work of art.
As a rule, I never leave a sheet unaltered. I have pierced, cut or stapled my paper throughout my career. I regard all of these activities as drawing techniques. Each as valid as putting pencil to paper. Each process has been fed by my desire to create as difficult an environment to work on as possible and as result, challenge myself as an artist.
