CAMP Rehoboth Puts Art at the Heart of Our Community
Thanks for Masking!
Happy PRIDE to all you quaran-queens, as well as you introverts continuing to practice anti-social distancing. I’m certain we were all looking forward to another wonderful summer at the beach, but…2020.
So, go pour yourself another quarantini, and stay safe out there. Or in there, as the case may be.
Let’s Try This Again…
CAMP Rehoboth Gallery is reopening with art that was accepted—but never had the chance to be exhibited—for the Women’s FEST Art Show. Fine artist Caroline Huff selected works by over 25 artists in multiple mediums. The exhibit will be on display June 19-July 23—by appointment and on social media. CDC guidelines will be followed.
The exhibit features two local artists: Renata Price and Susan Frey. Reflecting her engineering background, Price’s work is very detail oriented, with complex shadows and reflections. Frey’s shapes, lines, and splashes of color are carefully balanced in her work.
The Rehoboth Beach Bandstand has made the difficult decision not to move forward with their 2020 concert season, and the Freeman Stage has not yet announced a season, or if they will cancel their season.
