We live in a world of many connections and shared experiences – both personal and via the digital world. In “Connections,” on display at CAMP Rehoboth from March 10 through April 17, 2023, developing artists aged 16 to 21 years old share their voices through a youth-focused lens. A reception, on Saturday, March 11, from 2 to 4 p.m., will provide an opportunity to celebrate these artists and their talent.

Art gives meaning to our lives and helps us understand the world. The creation of art facilitates a deeper understanding of emotions, promotes self-awareness, and allows for consideration of new ideas and experiences. In “Connections “ the 11 exhibiting artists explore these themes and emotions such as isolation, relationships, anger, love, belonging, and more.

In this juried art exhibition, the selections, which were made by a team of community members, incorporate works in a broad range of media: painting, charcoal sketches, photography, digital art, mixed media and sculpture.

The exhibiting artists are: Cryslan Arceneaux, Lillianna Berkey, Tatum Friend, Madison Laird, Lo Parks, Charlie Selders, Samantha Strunk, Bea Stryjewski, Willow Troise, Sabina Troncone, and Hannah Worth. They reside in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware.

All can learn from the perspectives of these talented young artists.
