The Rehoboth Art League announced its 71st Annual Cottage Tour, which will be held online from Thursday, July 1 through Wednesday, July 14.
Due to ongoing health and safety concerns, the tour will take place virtually, and will include online home tours, original artwork commissioned for the event, and video interviews with designers, homeowners and architects.
This year, the cottage tour’s 10 Rehoboth-area homes offer a variety of landscapes, interior and architectural designs, ranging from historically significant to contemporary and sleek. Some homes have quite an evolving history, and many homeowners showcase memories, artwork and collections in creative ways.
This collection of coastal homes is also presented online through an artist’s interpretation, with an interview and studio tour of this year’s selected cottage tour artist and award-winning oil painter John Schisler. As always, the art league’s historic Peter Marsh Homestead is featured on the virtual tour, showcased as an 18th century farmstead that has been transformed with contemporary furnishings, thanks to the creative vision of event underwriter J. Conn Scott.
Tickets for this signature summer event are now available online at rehobothartleague.org and come with a personalized log-in valid during tour dates. Each $35 ticket purchase provides unlimited access to online content for the duration of the virtual tour which may be conveniently accessed from the comfort of home through a laptop, desktop, tablet or smartphone.
As always, proceeds from the cottage tour support the Rehoboth Art League’s year-round exhibition and education programs.
