Opening Reception:  Friday, October 19  |  5-7pm

About the Exhibition

This exhibition celebrates the plein air work of seventeen juried artists who braved the elements to produce an array of artwork representing the best of coastal Delaware.  From designated locations in the Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach and Bethany Beach areas, each artist had up to five days to paint scenes that embody the natural beauty or culture of our coastal community.  The spirit of plein air painting is embodied within these works, as they were created outdoors (away from the artists’ studio) and without the use of photography.  A smaller number of works were previously on view during a limited exhibition at the Homestead.  This exhibition represents a more comprehensive collection of works created during this recent plein air event.
