The Rehoboth Art League hosts Gallery Talks as a free opportunity for the public to delve deeper into the arts and humanities content of our exhibitions. A wide range of presenters—including exhibition judges, jurors, art historians, and artists themselves—provide unique perspectives on fine arts, their historical contexts, and how the arts contribute to the human experience.

Andrea V. Uravitch is best known for her mixed-media nature related sculptures and environments. These continue to evolve over many years of art making. After receiving a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art she totally immersed herself in the visual arts. Her focus has been the creation of mixed media sculpture, primarily animals, fish, insects, birds, and frogs. These are often incorporated into a vegetative setting, usually with an edge to them that is intended to invoke a reaction from the viewer. For the past 20 years she has been concerned with Mankind’s responsibility for the survival of the environment.
She has shown in over 300 hundred invitational, juried, and solo shows in museums, galleries, art centers, college galleries and institutions. Her work has been seen in shows from Tapei, Taiwan, to Tacoma, Washington, including institutions such as the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Racine Art Museum, Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, Winchester VA, a Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service tour of Africa. Her other art experiences include teaching, lecturing, curating, installing, and jurying. Her works are part of numerous public and private collections including the Museum of Art and Design in New York City, and the Renwick Gallery, American Art Museum, Smithsonian Institution. She is represented by the Mobilia Gallery, Cambridge, MA. Currently, she is part of the New Image Quilt Group. She also serves on the Board of the James Renwick Alliance for Craft. She has devoted her life to making, teaching, and promoting the visual arts.
