The Rehoboth Art League Monthly Salons that began in June as a special 75th anniversary event have proved an overwhelming success. The monthly creative and intellectual gatherings in the homes of inspiring hosts will continue into 2014. Each month since June, the salons have featured a unique and vibrant art-related topic. The Holiday Salon Thursday, Dec. 5, will culminate the 2013 season with music, caroling and a gourmet buffet dinner.
Barbara Carrow will host the salon in her beautiful Milton home, which will be decorated in a Winter Wonderland theme including five holiday trees. The Carrow house reflects a love of travel, art, family and nature and showcases the home’s intimate view of the Broadkill River. Barbara’s passion for decorating during the holiday makes this the perfect setting for a holiday salon. Vocalist Becki Polk will accompany Vincent Varrassi and Company.
Pat Griendinger will cater the event with hors d’oeuvres followed by dinner and dessert cake bar. Later in the evening, guests may join in with traditional caroling.
Tickets are $25 each and advance purchase required as space is limited. Tickets are available online at www.rehobothartleague.org or by phone at 302-227-8408.
Several salons have been scheduled for 2014: Art of Relationships Jan. 23, Art of Russia Feb. 15 and March 27, a special combined salon, Art of Mixology and Creating Documentary Films. Dates will be finalized soon for the remainder of the 2014 calendar.
