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.

“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.”
