Roderick Hidalgo is a self-taught artist and gallery owner in Hockessin, Delaware. Passionate about and driven by exploration, Hidalgo’s work shifts between painting, sculpting, metalwork, and woodworking. Currently his love of exploration has led him to working with resin and powdered pigment, an artistic process that encompasses all the previously mentioned mediums, and in which he has created a successful and unique niche client base.
Hidalgo’s work can be found in private collections across twenty U.S. states as well as in Canada and has been exhibited in Wilmington’s prestigious galleries The Delaware Contemporary and The Chris White Gallery, respectively. He serves on The Chris White Gallery Committee, a six-person panel that curates its exhibitions, has curated exhibitions in partnerships with CreateInWilm, ART WRX, and Moving Parts Collective and has also worked as the lead mural artist for the Creative Vision Factory at the Chris Sturmfels Youth Center.
Hidalgo opened his own gallery, RH Gallery & Studios, in Spring 2017 and presents bi-monthly art exhibitions showcasing local and international artists; the studio space is rented out to local artists. Most recently, Hidalgo’s works have been displayed at The Delaware Contemporary, The Mill Space, and Wilmington’s annual Brandywine Festival of the Arts. He has been teaching art at Wilmington’s Nativity Preparatory School since 2013 and in August of 2017, he was presented with Capital One Bank’s Wilmington Art Program Honorarium award and appointed the program’s exhibit installation manager. This summer he will be featured in the international art magazine Create!.
