Events Stories

Sept. 3: Sculptor to discuss work

Visiting scholar Cameron Hockenson will discuss his work during a lecture to be held at 12:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 3, in Room 101 of the University of Delaware's Studio Arts Building.

Sept. 3-Dec. 7: 'Delaware Awake!'

A new exhibition titled "Delaware Awake! World War I at Home and Abroad" will run from Sept. 3 through Dec. 7 at the University of Delaware's Old College West Gallery.

Malcomson, a fellow of the Institute of Civil Engineers, was for many years a consulting engineer advising architects and his specialty became inner city redevelopment. 

This complex work required the ability to see the essence of a problem, encouraging his love of the minimal, which has become a feature of his work. 

In 1993, Malcomson decided to commit to full-time painting and attended Chelsea Art School. His main influences are psychology and poetry and his paintings are intended as “inner landscapes” and invitations to travel internally without defining a destination. 

In 2004, he was invited to an artist’s residency in Spain, which led to marriage and emigration to the United States, where he now lives and works.
