The Rehoboth Art League held its 18th Annual Young at Art Show opening and awards March 8 at the RAL campus in Henlopen Acres. The show featured artwork from students throughout Sussex County. The art was chosen by each school’s or organization’s art instructor and was juried by the art league.
Cash awards and gift certificates were presented to the top seven works, along with the James Kenneth Derrickson Memorial Scholarship, which entitles the students to tuition-free classes at the RAL for one year, to 20 other outstanding works of art.
