State Archivist Stephen Marz and the staff of Delaware Public Archives recently welcomed Delaware artist Nicholas Serratore as they unveiled the latest installation of their Arts at the Archives program. The effort, which is a partnership with the DPA’s sister agency, the Delaware Division of the Arts, provides opportunities to Delaware artists to exhibit their art to a new audience.
Serratore is a Lewes resident and a former recipient of an Individual Artist Fellowship Grant for Emerging Artists from the division. He created a custom triptych for the Delaware Room at the Delaware Public Archives. The three pastel paintings, “Broadkill River,” “Canary Creek” and “Prime Hook Refuge,” are on extended loan courtesy of the artist.
“We are honored to exhibit Mr. Serratore’s amazing paintings of three beautiful Delaware landscapes,” said Marz. “The additions of these creations by our first artist in residence truly enhance the Delaware Public Archives for all who visit.”
