The Chris White Gallery
The Chris White Gallery is a two-story non-profit exhibition space housed on the first floor and basement of Shipley Artist Lofts. The Chris White Gallery serves both the resident artists of Shipley Artist Lofts and the greater Wilmington art community as a place for the presentation and appreciation of the contemporary arts.
I worked with Chris because we both were members of the Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew. He worked a lot while I worked a tiny bit on getting the derelict building at 7th and Shipley converted into artists lofts with a gallery. Sadly, he was killed suddenly on April 21, 2010 while standing on the sidewalk outside the building by a man fleeing from the police.

My Five Images
My five images in this show are diverse, as is most of my work. “Window Tree, Bancroft Mills” dates back to 2016 before the mills burned. “Girl, Frog Fountain” has been exhibited in Philadelphia and in Washington, D.C. but never in Wilmington. “The Future” is about the process by which all things become historical curiosities, including (for some) Christianity. God help us! “Digging A Foundation” shows a teenager’s pink shoes as she stands on a shovel. The text is from my Photo Prayer 2015-37. Nearly every week I add text to an image and email it to subscribers, a project I have been pursuing since 2007. “Every Weird Scene is Charged with Suspense” is a comment on the ordinariness of our lives versus the tension we need in our lives. It is also a comment on my frequent late-night viewing habits.
