WILMINGTON, DE — Nearly eight years ago, Geraldo Gonzalez was frustrated that people didn’t take his art seriously. He’d faced rejection and misunderstanding with his technicolor drawings of public transit vehicles. Eight years later, Gonzalez has exhibited art at the Delaware Contemporary, the Delaware Art Museum and many other local venues. He was included in the 2014 exhibition “All Different Colors” at Fleisher/Ollman Gallery in Philadelphia. The University of Delaware purchased four of his drawings for its permanent collection. And now he has been named a 2019 recipient of an Individual Artist Fellowship through the Delaware Division of the Arts. His work will be on display Friday, Feb. 15, from 6 to 9 p.m. at MKT Place Gallery. Read more from USA Today
