9:46 a.m., Feb. 28, 2012--Colette Gaiter, associate professor of art at the University of Delaware, will present an exhibition titled "With Minimal Concern for Safety" from March 2-30 in the Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery, Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French St., Wilmington. 

The solo exhibition will showcase works on paper that combine crochet, photographs and media images. The works include photographs from the artist’s trips to Cuba in recent years, documenting Gaiter’s perceptions of the communist country through the literal and figurative lens of relative privilege.

Dec. 24-Jan. 2: Holiday skating

The University of Delaware Ice Arenas will host holiday skating sessions beginning Wednesday, Dec. 24, and continuing through Friday, Jan. 2.

“What’s been fun about this body of work for me is that I didn’t have a preconceived idea when I went into it, things have just evolved,” Gaiter said. “And I love, after being behind a computer all these years, working with things, with objects and materials.”

Last year, Gaiter received an Individual Artist Fellowship award of $6,000 from the Delaware Division of the Arts. Each recipient of the award displays his or her work in a solo exhibition or performance. 

Gaiter’s exhibition is free and open to the public. A reception to meet the artist will be held from 5-8 p.m., Friday, March 2, also at the Mezzanine Gallery. More information on Gaiter and her previous work can be found at the fellowship’s web publication.
