WHO WAS THAT MASKED MAN?
Given the current state of the economy, that masked man is probably your friendly banker—the Loan Arranger. I never thought I’d see the day a bank wouldn’t let us in the door without a mask! Time to take the money you saved on gas and having your nails done and support our arts community. Wear your mask, keep your hands clean, and stay at an anti-social distance. Or just buy an air horn like I did and blow it in people’s faces if they get too close. I’ve been banned from three grocery stores, but I will survive! All locations are Rehoboth Beach unless otherwise noted.
Award Winners XX
This exhibit features the work of the 19 Delaware Division of the Arts award winners—recognizing Delaware artists for outstanding quality of work, like Robert Bruce Weston, who became enamored with exotic and domestic woods when he was commissioned to do a “Monet-like wall hanging using wood veneers.” Now it’s his career!
Photographer Shelley Koon was inspired by an exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and began to photograph forgotten structures and abandoned buildings. She loves documenting their history and seeing how “Mother Nature likes to quickly reclaim what is hers.”
Sculptor Guy Miller’s works speak allegorically about racial disparity, oppression, and the underrepresentation of Blacks in the culture at large. He transmits this message by working with and transmuting ready-made objects that are instantly recognizable.
Small groups (one-three people) may make appointments to view the exhibit—Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.—by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Appointments may also be scheduled on other days and times.
