CAMP Rehoboth has three exciting November events—Breaking Barriers (a juried art exhibit), Breaking the Sound Barrier: The Women’s Music Movement from the 1970s to the 1990s, and a Virtual Open Mic Night performance by Lucie Blue Tremblay.
Breaking Barriers (November 8-28) features work by 21 artists in a variety of art forms and is held in conjunction with Breaking the Sound Barrier: The Women’s Music Movement from the 1970s to the 1990s—a Stonewall National Museum traveling show. This exhibit will be on display in the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center room and consists of nine large panels, as well as memorabilia from the women’s music scene—framed photos, posters, jackets, album covers, and a looping documentary. Artists explore how they use art to achieve goals, break down barriers, address stereotypes, and amplify their voices.
November 13 (5-8 p.m.) is the official opening, and guests are invited to explore the CAMP Rehoboth Handmade Market (local craftspeople display and sell wares in the courtyard) and visit with the Breaking Barriers artists who will be on hand to share their vision. Best practices will be followed, and face masks are required.
Groups of up to three individuals can view the show at CAMP Rehoboth Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Private tours can be scheduled by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Friday, November 20 (6-8 p.m.), CAMP Rehoboth’s Virtual Open Mic Night features Lucie Blue Tremblay. She appeared at the 1985 Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival and her debut album (released in 1986 by Olivia Records) was voted Top Ten Album of the Year by the Boston Globe. Join us on Facebook Live at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center Facebook page.
