CommUNITY – Connecting Generations Through Art
When multiple generations come together to share their art it gives a powerful voice to both younger and long-time artists and builds a sense of community. This is the premise of CommUNITY, which features artistic voices that span generations - work by artists 55 and older and the creations of students from area schools.
Additional information that could be placed on the web.
This has been a challenging year for students, but these young people have created art to share with us. This exhibition includes students’ artwork from three area high schools that are part of CAMP Rehoboth’s Youth Programs. Even students from elementary schools are participating in the creation of art and their works are on display.
Edward Alban, a senior at Sussex Central, created “Over the Past Year” in response to a year of isolation. Logan Farro, a student at Sussex Tech, housed a hand, heart, and flag in an old T.V. in “From the Past.” Ester Ponce Moreno, from Cape Henlopen High, has just begun to work with acrylics and created a colorful geometric abstract.
Longtime artists have experienced challenges too and have continued to create art and share their stories. Sharon Marquart’s “The Eyes of the Heart” is about oneness, peace and love as seen through the heart. Guillermo Silveira created a digital rendering and “couldn’t be happier after talking and seeing each other in a long videoconference from different hemispheres.” Olaive Jones’ “In Our United States” contains the names of just some of the Black Americans slain in the past few years. Olaive navigates the intersections of color, lines, shapes, and textures as she creates energetic images that connect with our humanity, and the myriad textures of life itself.
CAMP Rehoboth is focusing on themes that give light to our community’s unique history and culture, and serve to further diversity, equity, and inclusion, and build unity and understanding..

A Celebration of Life With Pride: In Honor and Memory of Lee Wayne Mills
From June through July 3, CAMP Rehoboth hosted "A Celebration of Life with Pride: In Honor and Memory of Lee Wayne Mills," a summer exhibit and sale of Lee's works in the CAMP Rehoboth Gallery and Elkins-Archibald Atrium.
The prolific local artist passed away in the summer of 2020 and requested that some of his works be donated to CAMP Rehoboth, and that proceeds from the sale of art be used to support CAMP Rehoboth’s Youth program, YouthUP!, as well as for art supplies and programs at CAMP Rehoboth.
Art programs supported in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware arts events on www.DelawareScene.com.
