Events Stories

June 5: Blue Hen 5K

University of Delaware graduates planning to attend Alumni Weekend are encouraged to register for the annual Blue Hen 5K walk and run, which will be held Sunday morning, June 5.

June 6-9: Food and culture series

The 20th annual June Lecture Series at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UD in Wilmington will be held June 6-9. Titled 'June a la Carte,' this year's program focuses on great political documents, feminism, world politics and a Newark cuisine sampler.

Malcomson, a fellow of the Institute of Civil Engineers, was for many years a consulting engineer advising architects and his specialty became inner city redevelopment. 

This complex work required the ability to see the essence of a problem, encouraging his love of the minimal, which has become a feature of his work. 

In 1993, Malcomson decided to commit to full-time painting and attended Chelsea Art School. His main influences are psychology and poetry and his paintings are intended as “inner landscapes” and invitations to travel internally without defining a destination. 

In 2004, he was invited to an artist’s residency in Spain, which led to marriage and emigration to the United States, where he now lives and works.
