Paul Rendel Selected Artist

Rehoboth Art League member Paul Rendel has been selected to capture the essence of the eight homes on the 2014 Cottage Tour of Art. This year’s Cottage Tour will include seven exceptional private homes and the Homestead, a 1743 colonial home listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, and located on the Art League's campus. Rendel’s paintings of the homes will be featured in the Cottage Tour program booklet.

Paul Rendel studied at the Detroit Institute of Art. He has a long career as an artist and Illustrator serving the advertising industry in Detroit, Michigan & Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He has a series of aviation and landscape limited edition prints.

“At its finest, art is emotion and drama distilled and set down on canvas (or carved into three dimensional wood sculptures), a visual narrative painted (or carved) with a perfectionist’s respect of honesty and accuracy.” says Rendel.

Paul Rendel is one of the nation’s most respected interpreters of aviation and wild life art. He has exhibited in museums, galleries and shows throughout the United State and is the recipicant of numerous art awards. Last year Paul won first place in the American Society of Aviation Artists show in Baltimore, Maryland. Paul’s sculptures, prints and original oils are found in boardroom of major corporations, as well as on the walls of serious art collectors. His past civic work was the mural in the Rehoboth library, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. A life size Bronze Sculpture of John Milton in Mill Park , Milton, Delaware and a painting of the Dover Air Force Base for the AMC Museum. Paul is a Fellow Member, past president of The American Society of Aviation artist, a member of the New York Society of Illustrators, the Air Force Art program, the Rehoboth Art league and the Milton Art Guild.
