Technology allows art show to double in size on Black Friday

On Black Friday, Nov. 29, Hardcastle Galleries will use modern technology to turn two galleries located 17 miles apart into one expansive gallery for a special juried art show and sale. 

Both the Centreville and Newark galleries will be connected by a two-way live video feed, essentially becoming one large gallery. Those attending in either location will be able to see the works on display at the other gallery from 1 to 8:30 p.m. 

Original art by more than 50 regional artists, including Carolyn Blish, Jim McGlynn, Michael Brock, Charles Allmond, Terry Newitt and others, will be on display and for sale. At the “Miniature Art Show,” the 125-year-old establishment will feature over 500 original works of art, including paintings in a variety of media up to 14 inches wide, and tabletop sculptures in a range of styles and materials.

“This is a very special collection indeed,” said Mike Brock, president of Hardcastle Galleries, “because it’s a unique opportunity to purchase investment-worthy art at very reasonable prices.” All prices will range from $75 to $775.

Live music and refreshments will enhance the festive atmosphere of the holiday event. “This is an opportunity to purchase a gift of lasting value and beauty at exceptionally affordable prices,” Brock said.

Now celebrating their 125th anniversary, Hardcastle Galleries is the fourth oldest business in Delaware, and a mainstay in the art community since its founding in 1888. The company specializes in presenting the works of regional artists for show and sale at its two Delaware locations: 5714 Kennett Pike, Centreville; and 218 E. Main Street, Newark. In addition, the company provides appraisal and consultation services, as well as the full range of custom framing and related services, including restoration, installation and specialty art presentations.
