Now through August 14, the Delaware Contemporary in Downtown Wilmington will be featuring the work of Dusty Boynton in her solo exhibit “Out of Line.”

Dusty Boynton Exhibition at the Delaware ContemporarySolo exhibits are rare for Boynton, who often shows with Denise Bibro Fine Art in New York City. Her work, known for its innocent brush strokes that mingle with undertones of a more mature experience, has been featured in CONTEXT Art Miami in Miami, Florida, the Texas Contemporary in Houston, and the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, Vermont. She has been reviewed in Modern Painters, ARTnews, and The New York Times. 

Boynton’s impressive art career spans several decades. An early review by The New York Times pegged her style as being childlike but not childish; behind the simple brush strokes lies a very adult sensibility. Boynton explains, "I let the struggle, mistakes, and urgency show. Scraping off and building on, changing and allowing truth to come through." Her large, bold images dare you to look away. 

The Delaware Contemporary will be holding an opening reception for “Out of Line” on Sunday, July 17 between 12 and 2 pm.
