This winter and spring, the Rehoboth Art League will be offering classes and featuring members' art works in the historic McQuay’s Marketplace at 510 Rehoboth Ave. across from the Rehoboth Beach Museum and Visitors Center. The property owned by Cindy and Paul Lovett, which is for sale, has been made available to the art league.
“We were looking for a location outside of Henlopen Acres to offer additional art programming,” says Executive Director Sheila Bravo. “We were thrilled when we learned we would be able to occupy historic McQuay’s Marketplace.” The art league is able to use the space temporarily and plans to hold classes, open studios and highlight the various artistic media of its artist members. It is one of several ways in which the league is offering art experiences outside of its main campus in Henlopen Acres. “This summer, we will also hold classes in Lewes at the Lewes library,” said Bravo.
The Rehoboth Art League Annex on the Avenue will be open to the public beginning Saturday, Feb. 15. Its hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Thursday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday. Featured programs include open studios, art and coffee - short art films with discussion, and several fun evening classes.
The Rehoboth Art League is a membership-based nonprofit arts organization dedicated to teaching, preserving and inspiring the arts in the region. For more information on the art league, its classes, events and exhibitions, visit rehobothartleague.org or call 302-227-8408.
