Come, Ye Thankful People, Come
As we enter the season of what should be endless holiday revelry, we need to take a moment and give thanks for those of us who survive, remember those who didn’t, and do what we can to forgive most of 2020 and what will likely be the entirety of 2021. Let forgiveness be the first step on your path to healing. And celebrate, ever so cautiously. ▼
CAMP REHOBOTH UPCOMING SHOWS
Pacem in Terris Traveling Peace Artwork—This juried exhibit connects us to our deeper sense of humanity as it highlights positive messages and visions of peace from young artists (ages five to 18) from around Delaware. Today’s children prove they have a strong voice about what their future should be. Treat yourself to a moment of peace amidst the hectic holiday season.
HINENI (Here I Am)—Works by contemporary abstract expressionist painter, Rebecca Davidson, explore motion, color, and texture through monumental, layered paintings. Rebecca, currently pursuing an MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, hopes this body of work speaks of her own identity of being queer, multiethnic, Jewish, and autistic.
Both shows run December 3, 2021-January 3, 2022, with an Opening Reception on December 3 (5-9 pm).
CAMP Rehoboth highlights our community’s unique history and culture, and serves to further diversity, equity, and inclusion, by building unity and understanding. Exhibits may be viewed Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., or by appointment by emailing artshow@CAMPRehoboth.com. You may view and purchase the art on the CAMP Rehoboth website under the “SHOP” heading.
