“I very much enjoy the chemical, material and experimental nature of the photogravure process. I am constantly refining my workflow and learning with each plate I make. I usually take photos of natural subjects either right here at home or close to home. The photos are usually shot digitally but sometimes I shoot on film. Occasionally an image may come from travels such as Maui or the Monstera shot in Guatemala. Sometimes additional elements will be collaged into an image either digitally or manually. The prints are essentially byproducts of the experimentation taking place in the photogravure plate making process which for me is much like a ritual or a meditation practice.”

Acclaimed American artist Dorothy Gillespie (1920 - 2012) boasted a prolific career that spanned more than 70 years. The exhibit Dorothy Gillespie: A Retrospective, up now at the Wilma W. Daniels Gallery until August 25th, is a good opportunity to compare Gillespie's mastery of both sculpture and painting, often side by side.

Pictured here is a detail of the sculpture SERIES 4: ARRANGEMENT ### (1977) and the painting SERIES 5: UNTITLED (1977.)

To observe the relational shift between viewing two-dimensional and three-dimensional art visit the Wilma W. Daniels Gallery, 200 Hanover Street on the beautiful downtown Wilmington campus of CFCC, across from the Wilson Center. Open Monday through Friday, 12:00 - 5:00pm, and for Fourth Friday Gallery Night.

The Wilma W. Daniels was recently visited by a lifelong admirer of Dorothy Gillespie. His interest in Gillespie's career began in 1985, when he was just twelve years old.

He remembers being inspired by the meeting: "[Gillespie] was preparing the display of her work for the 10th anniversary of the Huntsville Art Museum in Huntsville, Alabama. I remember her as being a fascinating woman. Operating on a creative plain that I rarely experienced in Alabama."

His collection of Gillespie artwork began when, as a reward for making it on the Academic Honor Roll, his Mom gifted him the Huntsville exhibition poster, and six pieces from the show -- which have been with him ever since.

A retrospective of Dorothy Gillespie's art is currently on exhibit at the Wilma W. Daniels Gallery, and will close on August 25th. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 12:00 - 5:00pm, and on Fourth Friday Gallery Nights.

Want to know why the artist’s signature isn’t consistent on the artwork in the Dorothy Gillespie: A Retrospective exhibit at the Wilma W. Daniels Gallery?

1975 was a pivotal year in American politics, it was also designated as “International Women’s Year.” Dorothy Gillespie was the only woman commissioned to create a mural in Manhattan that year, the mural was done in soft pastel colors – a first for a building in NYC.

While standing on the bustling street giving directions to the painters up on the scaffold, Gillespie was interrupted by a man wanting to know whose art was being put up. When Gillespie responded that she was the artist, the man was astounded, explaining that he didn’t realize women painted walls, he thought only men did.

It was a revelation for Gillespie, and it changed how she signed her artwork. Before 1975 Gillespie signed only her last name, occasionally with her first initial, but post-1975 she switched to signing her first and last name, so that everyone would know the art they were admiring had been created by a woman.

Sadly, that landmark mural is no longer in NYC as the building has been demolished. To witness the significance of Gillespie’s signature evolution, as well as to consider the role the feminist art movement has had in our culture, visit the Wilma W. Daniels Gallery, 200 Hanover Street, on the beautiful downtown Wilmington campus of CFCC, Mon. – Fri. noon – 5:00pm, monthly reception every Fourth Friday Gallery Night.

Please note, the Wilma W Daniels Gallery will be CLOSED tomorrow, 6/13 for a private event.

Standing at 18" x 17" x 17", Dorothy Gillespie's NEW RIVER SERIES: CELEBRATION is a small sculpture that commands attention despite being surrounded by much larger pieces. The abstract sculpture is a precise swirl of colorful ribbons undulating with energy, and demonstrates Gillespie's painterly exploration of metalwork.

To view this sculpture within the arc of Gillespie's career, visit the Wilma W. Daniels Gallery, Mon. - Fri. noon - 5:00pm, or open monthly for the Fourth Friday Gallery Night.
