2021 Solo and Group Exhibition Proposals

The Exhibitions Committee will soon be in the process of organizing solo and group exhibitions for 2021.  This is a very competitive program as RAL can only accept a limited number of proposals each year.  Artworks in any media will be reviewed.  The RAL is situated in the town of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, a highly traveled area not only by the residents of this and the expanding surrounding communities, but also by art patrons from the Washington DC, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and New York metropolitan areas.  Over 29,000 people participate in RAL programs annually.  Special exhibitions have played an important part of our programming since the league’s beginning, in 1938.  The RAL campus houses the Corkran, Tubbs, Ventures, and Homestead galleries.

Eligible: Rehoboth Art League Members and Non-Members
Call Deadline:  July 19, 2020 (5pm)                                                                                                                                                                                                  Registration Fee: $20.00 (Registration fee is non-refundable)
