During the 75th Anniversary of the Art League, monthly Salons were held in the spirit of the fashionable Parisian Salons of the 17th century in a model that extended arts-centered discussions in the comfort of a private home. Each Salon is hosted by a local homeowner, some featuring a private overview of a collection of artwork, others delving into the artistic process of creating a body of artwork. Whether from the collector or from the artists, these Salons, complete with refreshments, help community members engage with discussions of artists, creative movements, art history, and more. Discussions are led by the homeowners and/or a leading professional on the evening’s topic. Tickets are required and space is limited.
From the Collector
Contemporary Work from the Collection of Cliff Diver
Tuesday, November 16
Enjoy an exclusive look at some of the contemporary collection of Clifford Diver in his stunning Lewes home, which has been featured in Delaware Today and Beach Life Magazines. Pieces in this collection have been loaned to museums around the world, including the Whitney, the Corcoran, and ICA Boston and the Venice Biennale. This will feature a new selection of work, including pieces from Warren Isensee, Emil Lukas, and, among others, Kurt Strahm. The evening’s discussion touches on diversity in collecting, as well as the processes we use in reading art work. Refreshments will be served.
The cost is $100 per person. Space is limited.
