Two new art exhibits opened yesterday in Wilmington and will be open for the next couple weeks. Opening at The Mill was a contemporary art exhibit exploring themes of home, migration and upheaval. Another exhibit was revealed at the Mezzanine Gallery, titled ‘Spring Must Come’ by Terron Mitchel.

At The Mill is a solo exhibition by artist Krista Dedrick Lai and will be open until April 3rd. The art is described to contain personal and broad meditations on the concepts of “home” and “change.” Dedrick Lai aims to portray “the reality of life under the Trump Administration and how to have hope in a dark time.” Krista’s work has been shown in several Philadelphia galleries such as  Space 1026, High Five Gallery and Practice Gallery, as well as galleries in New Orleans and New Jersey.

Another art exhibit also opened yesterday at The Mezzanine Gallery, and will be available until February 28th. The exhibition is titled “Spring Must Come”, and will feature sculptural paintings by Terron Mitchell. Mitchell creates his “sculptural paintings” by layering carved shapes made from wood sheathing to create a three-dimensional work. This layering creates interesting shadows and gives the work a sense of movement. Mitchell also makes his own custom-colored oil stains for the work.

The work in Spring Must Come, Mitchell says, “depicts a poetic visualization of one’s journey chasing dreams and accomplishing goals.” He is influenced by inspirational authors, Earl Nightingale and Jim Rohn. Mitchell lives, works, and maintains a studio in Smyrna, Delaware.
