From River to Ocean

Textile Work by Anne Bellas
May 10, 2024 – June 9, 2024

Corkran Gallery

Anne is a self-taught art quilter who lives in Nantes, France.  Her art is mostly abstract, sometimes hinting at landscapes but never really representational. She mostly pieces and machine quilts, using fabrics inherited from her great grandmother’s dowry- white cotton and linen sheets and tablecloths that she dyes and prints. 

74ᵗʰ Annual Cottage Tour

Tuesday, July 9 and Wednesday, July 10, 2024 10 am - 3pm

The Cottage Tour Committee, a group of hard-working volunteers, has worked hard to vet and secure another very special selection of local homes that showcase the best of the area's art and design. The homes on this year's tour offer a variety of landscapes, interior and architectural designs, ranging from historically significant to contemporary and sleek. Some homes have quite an evolving history and many homeowners showcase memories, artwork, and collections in creative ways.  Tickets are now available!

The Everyday

Oil Paintings by Michael McSorley
May 10, 2024 – June 9, 2024

Ventures Gallery

My paintings are a continuation of my childhood fascination with the visual world. At the age of 8, I was taking photos with an old film camera. My pictures of bicycle wheels, sewage pumps and other inane objects vexed my parents but predicted my future creative production. I developed a sensitivity for the mundane.

Sea Change

Oil Paintings by Stephen Estrada
May 10, 2024 – June 9, 2024

Tubbs Gallery

Our connection to the sea goes back beyond time. Its moods and rhythms affect our daily lives. For me the ocean has always been a source of solace, mystery and adventure. For many years I have volunteered rebuilding in communities affected by hurricanes that have come ashore in Florida, New Orleans and Puerto Rico. I have intimate knowledge of the ocean’s beauty and its awesome power.

Sitting Pretty: A Collections Showcase

Sitting Pretty
May 10, 2024 – July 14, 2024

DeWitt Gallery 

“The most prominent feature of a portrait is the person who sits for the artist creating the work. The same can be said for an object that serves to inspire a piece of sculpture. Here you will find a unique ensemble of works from the Rehoboth Art League’s Collection that illustrate the notion of Sitting Pretty, whether whimsical or serious, abstract or representational.”

Self Taught: Work from RAL’s Fine Art Collection Highlighting Self-Trained Artists

May 10, 2024 – July 14, 2024


This show exhibits some of the artworks by Artists in the Rehoboth Art League’s collection that are considered “self-taught.” While some may have taken some art classes at RAL, a majority have never attended a formal art school and began creating art out of an internal desire to express themselves.


The Rehoboth Art League presents more than two dozen solo, group, and special art exhibitions each year in our six galleries located throughout our 3+ acre wooded campus.


With more than 150 classes offered each year, our instructors’ offerings include mediums such as painting, drawing, pottery, fiber art, mosaic, creative writing, and much more.


Arts-driven events can be found at the Rehoboth Art League year-round, and highlight the best of our members’ artwork as well as notable art and design of the area.
