From September 10 to October 8, 2022, CAMP Rehoboth is showcasing works in an exhibition called “More than the Average Bear,” with a free open-to-the public reception on Sunday, September 25 from 10 a.m. until noon.
These are not your four-legged variety of bears, but a group of men in the gay community that call themselves "Bears.” A team of community members curated this exhibit of bear-friendly art, which will be held in conjunction with the annual Rehoboth Beach Bears Weekend.
CAMP Rehoboth uses art to illuminate the talent of the community and explore pertinent themes that enlighten, educate, and build community. This exhibition celebrates the bears with works by local and regional artists, including: JS Adams, Anthony Chiffolo, Joe Dietl, Max Fleishman, Robert Fleming, Dr Kaz Huston, Thomas Scott Roberts, Craig R Simmons, Richard Thibodeau, Don Twine, and Tom Waugh.
“CAMP Rehoboth is thrilled to once again host this annual art show” said Arts Program lead Leslie Sinclair. “The talent and variety in this year’s show is particularly amazing, with watercolors, works on wood, stained glass, painting on glass, and hand-drawn works.”
Plan to attend the Sunday, September 25 Reception to celebrate these artists and the bear aspect of LGBTQ culture.
