Tom Wilson: Super-Realist/Surrealist

July 1 –  October 16, 2022

Delawarean Tom Wilson studied art at the Rhode Island School of Design. Living in New York and eventually Paris, Wilson enjoyed the new visibility of LGBTQ artists while working as a top fashion model of the 1970s. After returning to Lewes in 1981, Wilson built a career on rendering photorealistic architectural studies of southern Delaware before succumbing to complications of the AIDS virus in 1995. This exhibition unveils the work of this artist and the community that supported his career.
