Women’s FEST Art Show
The Women’s FEST Art Show has welcomed many visitors to this exhibition before it closes on July 23. The show features 29 artists chosen by juror Caroline Huff, and may be viewed by appointment only at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Local photographer Nancy Allen is represented with Crashing Waves, a photo on canvas, while DC artist Joey Mánlapaz has received numerous accolades for her unique form of painterly photorealism, as seen in her triptych oil painting on wood, The Court of Neptune.
Artist and illustrator Rich Grote shares Dancing Clowns #2, an oil painting on canvas. Local favorite Geri Dibiase’s photo on canvas, The Moon Always Rises, beckons us to slow down and take a closer look at the world, and Lewes artist Aina Nergaard-Nammack’s #1578 Grey Sea captures an early morning landscape at Gordon’s Pond.
