A resounding success in years past, the Lewes Artists’ Studio Tour showcases the diverse talent in the Lewes art community and gives the public a chance to explore and discover the variety of media presented by these artists. Paintings, textiles, photography, jewelry, wood, mosaics and mixed media represent the diversity of their art work.
The artists again opening their studios on the tour include: Barbara Warden, Bert Long, Lorelei Meanor, Steve Rogers, Aina Nergaard-Nammack, Kevin Fleming, Jean Doran, Marilyn Nugent, Victor Letonoff, Lacy Letonoff, Barbara Petterson, Caryl Ekirch Williams, George Williams, Connie Miller, Nick Serratore, Susan Bartley, Perry Drevo and Leslie Delmege McDonald.
Two returning artists, Susan Bartley and Perry Drevo, are showcasing their brand-new studios. Bartley, previously on Gills Neck Road and now on West Third Street, is a goldsmith who designs and creates fine art jewelry. Perry, previously on Kings Highway and now on Jefferson Street, is a fiber artist and hand weaver who brings color and fiber together to create shawls, scarves and table linens.
Brochures with maps indicating the location of each studio are available in the Lewes and Rehoboth chambers of commerce, as well as shops and hotels throughout the Lewes-Rehoboth area, and at www.lewesart.com.
