a widespread or overwhelming manifestation of an emotion or phenomenon.

Good Aesthetic Gallery is pleased to present the “TIDAL WAVE” group exhibition at the Rehoboth Art League. This exhibition is a sweet thank you and an ode to the golden memory of Delaware’s Black Beaches during the 19th and 20th centuries. In tandem with “Edward Loper Jr.: To Water’s Edge and Back” this showcase signifies a manifestation of an incessant dream of those who came before us – the freedom to take up space.

While honoring the past, “TIDAL WAVE” grounds us in the present and propels us into the future. Through the lens of black artists, the audience will explore the relationship between aesthetics and the senses. This exhibit takes a closer look at how they work together to transport us through our own experiences or into the realities of others.

“TIDAL WAVE” is curated by Shameka JonesFounder and Director of Good Aesthetic Gallery.

Featured artists: Jefiah Bordley, Tanya Bracey, Sheila Exum, Charlese Phillips, Dakeim Tolson, Shameka Jones.
