Generations - Call For Art

When multiple generations come together to make art, something magical happens! The act of creation gives a powerful voice to young and old alike and builds a sense of shared community pride. This is the foundation for the CAMP Rehoboth’s upcoming art exhibition “Generations!” This exhibition combines the talents of emerging, established, and those who are young and "young at heart” by showcasing the work of high school student artists and artists who are 55 plus years of age.

If you are 55-plus or a high school student, CAMP Rehoboth invites you to submit artwork for display and sale during the exhibition. You can enter up to three works for consideration to be included in this show. Paintings, photographs, multimedia art, video, and smaller 3-D works will be considered. Artwork will be exhibited in the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center throughout December.

An Artists’ Reception held on December 8 will provide the opportunity for multi-generational artists and art lovers to mingle and enjoy the artwork and refreshments.

The arts are a key part of our vibrant community, and CAMP Rehoboth supports the arts by promoting the work of local artists. The 25% commission on artworks sold during this show will go to support CAMP Rehoboth’s art initiative CAMPfire, where we are Fostering, Inspiring and Rewarding Emerging arts and energizing the arts!
