Award Winners XXI at CAMP Rehoboth
With August 9 Reception
Each year the works by the Delaware Division of the Arts Award Winners travel from the Biggs Museum in Dover to appear at CAMP Rehoboth in Sussex County. This year the winners include 25 Delaware artists and feature a variety of art forms - choreographers, composers, musicians, writers, folk art, painters, sculptors, photographers, and more!
The exhibition will be on display from August 7 to 31. Join CAMP Rehoboth on August 9, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. for an Award Winners Reception. Socialize in the courtyard and tour the visual art in the gallery, then enjoy performances and readings by the artists. No need to feed the meters as this is conveniently scheduled on a Meter-less Monday!
Delaware’s Individual Artist Fellowships recognize artists for their outstanding quality of work. This year, the Division received work samples from 121 artists and 25 were selected. Fellows are from throughout Delaware including Arden, Bear, Clayton, Dover, Lewes, Long Neck, Milton, Newark, Rehoboth Beach, Smyrna, and Wilmington, with many residing in Sussex and Kent Counties.
Kim Klabe thinks that “What we create should come equally from our heart and minds. With heart and passion, the art comes alive.” A highlight of the reception will be a demonstration of Klabe’s wine and beer pour technique. Working in pours re-connected her to the creativity and imagination she experienced in art school.
Howard J Eberle believes in the “Drama of simple design, eliminating the clutter of everyday life, stripping away the unnecessary to get to the essence.”
T. Angela Taylor knew she would be an artist when one day “I went downtown to SoHo and saw the excitement and the colorful people selling art on the street.”
Writer Terry Miller’s work is “anchored in the belief that healing can take place in the interactive space between the reader and the writer.”
Interested individuals can also stop by CAMP Rehoboth Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to see the exhibition. The art is also available for viewing and purchase on the CAMP Rehoboth website gallery.
