-Detroit artist Darcel Deneau shares a body of work that reflects the degradation and renewal of the city of Detroit. Using found glass and objects, she transforms the detritus into beautiful mosaic urban landscapes.
Join us for the opening reception Saturday, October 10, 1 – 3 pm.
Adversity in Darcel’s life illuminated the importance of art and inspired a journey in pursuit of painting. After she earned a BFA from the College for Creative Studies, Darcel gained a notable reputation for her Detroit landscapes and received many commissions, including a large mural for Garage Restaurant and Fuel Bar in Northville.
In the last few years, Darcel has transitioned to painting with broken glass, rusted metal, and other odd items. Her mosaic landscapes symbolize transformation, and, like the revitalization of Detroit, reveal that a slight shift in perspective can create dramatic change and amazing beauty.
This works in the exhibition can be viewed through a virtual exhibition>>.
