CAMP Rehoboth Puts Art at the Heart of Our Community
TO OUR HEALTH!
October is National Arts and Humanities month, and we need to find new ways to celebrate the arts. I realize it takes a lot of energy just to live through another day, but we need to acknowledge what the arts bring to our lives, especially in these trying times. The arts have always been a source of joy and community in this world, and they still are. Stay healthy and support the health of the arts in any way you can to ensure we all make it to the other side of this! All locations listed below are in Rehoboth Beach unless otherwise noted.
BALANCE AND HARMONY
Our lives can all use a little Balance and Harmony and the Delaware Shore Artists Group exhibit at CAMP Rehoboth provides just that. The exceptional local artists in this collective—Jane Duffy, Alan Keffer, Jane Knaus, Linda Minkowski, Bev Morgan, Renata Price, and Phyllis Zwarych—share their work in this new exhibition—through October 31.
Delaware Shore Artists Group will be on hand to meet the public Saturday, October 31, from 2-4 p.m. Groups of up to three individuals can view the show at CAMP Rehoboth on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10a.m.-1 p.m. Private tours can be scheduled on other days and times by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
CALLING ALL ARTISTS
CAMP Rehoboth Gallery invites artists to submit artwork for consideration in Breaking Barriers—a juried exhibition on display November 9-28. This exhibit will be in conjunction with Breaking the Sound Barrier: The Women's Music Movement from the 1970s to the 1990s, a Stonewall National Museum traveling show consisting of nine large panels that will be on display at CAMP Rehoboth.
Both shows will explore the common theme of breaking barriers through painting, drawing, sculpture, 3D, ceramics, photography, videography, and mp4 files of performances. Artists may submit up to three original works before October 15 for consideration in the exhibition. A community team will select the artworks that will be part of the exhibition. Contact email@example.com if you have questions.
