CAMP Rehoboth Presents
One cornerstone of the CAMP Rehoboth mission is Promoting artistic expressions and creative thinking, and giving aid to artists and craftspeople with an emphasis on the works of lesbians and gay men. To this end, our programming includes music, visual art, dance, literary, and theatrical presentations within the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center or other venues.
CAMP Rehoboth had a very successful year for arts in 2017, with dozens of cultural programs onsite, some visual arts highlights included new collaborative partnerships with other arts organizations, including the Peninsula Gallery, Delaware Division of the Arts, and the Biggs Museum. In addition, CAMP Rehoboth partnered with Rehoboth Art League to present creative arts programs for 55+ individuals.
HeART on a String
Bidding is now open for HeART on a String, a celebration of the high level of creativity and achievement of artists in our area. This invitational showcases both emerging and established artists who join together to raise funds for CAMP Rehoboth’s arts programming, and allows everyone to have fun in the process!
Artists sell their work at a 50% commission, winning bidders get wonderful artworks, and CAMP Rehoboth receives a 50% commission, or 100% of the sale price if the artist chooses to donate it to CAMP Rehoboth. The proceeds are used to support CAMP Rehoboth arts programming and our initiative CAMPfire—where we are Fostering, Inspiring, Rewarding and Energizing the Arts!
You can view and bid on the works now until the reception on May 26. Artists have already dropped off their artwork at CAMP Rehoboth and now is the time to start bidding on this entertaining auction/gallery show.
Even if your walls are full, you will find space for one of these small works. They will be in all shapes and sizes, but we’ve asked the artists to keep them intimate. Enjoy small works with big impact. Artists participating are J.S. Adams, Sondra N. Arkin, Nikki Bee, Mary Byrd, Rod Cook, Donna Deely, Sam Dixon, Jane Duffy, Yvonne Franks, Vincent Hughes, Terry Isner, Kim Klabe, Jane Knaus, Jeff Moore, Bev Morgan, Mike Muller, Renata Price, and Lois Schlacter.
It’s as simple as 1-2-3! Link to the HeART on a String bidding site from CAMP Rehoboth’s website to view the art, register (no obligation or fee) as a bidder, then select and bid on the artwork you want. Bid often! The HeART on a String site and online bidding site will be open through May 26, and you will be notified if you are outbid!
HeART on a String will culminate in a closing Bid Reception on Saturday, May 26, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center. Socialize, enjoy refreshments, meet the artists, view the art in person, and continue bidding! Bidding will close at 7 p.m. when the bidders will learn if they have won. Bidders need not be present to win. Participate in the auction here.
Upcoming in the Gallery
In June, we are excited to present a duo show of stained glass and paintings by Yona Zucker and Renata Price. Both artists are well-known in the community and produce stunning visuals.
In August we host some of the 2017 recipients of the Individual Artist Fellowships granted by the Delaware Division of the Arts. It promises to be an excellent exhibition with an entertaining August 9 reception with performances at the community center in conjunction with the gallery show.
