Elizabeth Deans

Ms. Deans currently oversees the academic program and curriculum as well as
teaches graduate courses in decorative art, design, and architectural history at the
Smithsonian-George Mason MA program in the History of Decorative Arts. Her
seminars in the history of interiors, architecture, and ceramics, as well as survey
courses in decorative art from Renaissance to modern, explore interdisciplinary
relationships between design and material culture--investigating cultural exchange,
materiality, mimesis, dissemination, diachronicness, and object theory.

There is a non-refundable twenty-dollar ($20.00) entry fee for this exhibition. This fee allows a total of up to five (5) works to be exhibited at any one time. (There are no discounts for less than five.) Additional works may be added throughout the show to replace items that are sold.

Standards and Media:
Participating artists may submit up to five (5) craft works including, but not limited to: pottery, baskets, ceramics, fiber, glass, hand-made paper, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media and wood. Crafts made from commercial kits or plans will not be accepted. Entries must be original and created within the last two years (i.e. no works earlier than 2015) and never previously exhibited at RAL.

Each work must have a label securely attached to it that includes:

  • Artist’s name,
  • Title of the work,
  • Medium and
  • Date of production.

Labels can be printed from a link at the end of this form. Make sure to place the labels in a place that is not visible when your works are on display. Small works such as jewelry may be securely tagged with smaller labels that contain the same information as above.

Promotion:  The Rehoboth Art League will provide an opening reception on Friday, June 16, 2017 from 5 - 7pm. Images of selected works may be used on the RAL website and in promotional materials. This includes the implied consent of the artist to allow the RAL to incorporate them into educational materials, press releases and other related publicity.
