Rehoboth Art League's latest exhibition set to debut

Jul 24, 2017

The Rehoboth Art League is celebrating 79 years with its annual Fine Art Members' show. 


Artistic Director Jay Pastore says there is something for everyone in this year’s Fine Art Exhibition, including paintings, stone and ceramic sculpture, as well as digital and darkroom photography.

"We have 12 awards for this year, including best in show, emerging Delaware artists, best sculpture, best photography just to name a few," said Pastore.


Pastore notes the show will also include a bit of mixed-media.


"One artist makes handmade paper and then paints with that," said Pastore. "So it’s just using a variety of media to produce an artwork."

In alll, the exhibition features more than 120 peices.

Pastore says the League will run its “Members’ Showcase exhibition” alongside the “Fine Art show,” as well.

That exhibition features features 2-D and 3-D works focused on the impact of climate change.

Both exhibitions open July 28th and run through September 3rd.



Starting as an art colony in the late-1930s, the Rehoboth Art League has expanded to have well over 100 members.

Pastore says the long-lasting exhibition speaks to the talent and hunger for art in the Sussex County.
