The Rehoboth Art League opened its 79th Annual Members’ Fine Art Exhibition this past Friday. The show features work from more than 125 artists including a wide variety of sculpture, pastels, other paintings, photography and mixed-media works.
For Jay Pastore, RAL’s artistic director, this was his third members’ fine art show. “The level of the quality of work has gotten better each year,” he pointed out. “We saw that with our members’ fine craft show and for this show also. There is a lot of really strong work here and I think there is something that will appeal to everybody in this show,” he added. That’s him talking with Paula Holloway, the league’s education director.
The fine art exhibition is free and open to the public through September 3.
Also open through that date is Environmental Impact, a juried members’ showcase to heighten the awareness of our changing environment, and Illustration, Portraits and France works by Ethel P. B. Leach, who was known as the dean of women artists in Delaware during the first half of the 20th century.
