The City of Rehoboth Beach Municipal Building will be hosting the opening reception for the Rehoboth Art League’s Coastal Living exhibition Friday April 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. This exhibition will feature works from members who have encompassed anything from townscapes to beach views and from local landmarks to marine scenes. This exhibition will be on display until July 14 to serve as a reminder to locals and vacationers alike that coastal living is a one-of-a-kind experience.
The juror for this exhibition is Jaclyn Beam who holds a bachelor’s degree in music, a master’s and doctorate in education, and has always held a passion for painting. The Wyeths, Sorolla, Sargent, Sotter, Schofield and Thayer are a few of her favorite artists.
Beam is a member of the American Impressionist Society, Oil Painters of America, Washington Society of Landscape Painters and the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association. She served on the board of directors of MAPAPA and the Chaddsford Historical Society for eight years. Beam is included in the book “100 Mid Atlantic Plein Air Painters,” published by Shiffer. She is also featured in Brandywine Reflections as an artist helping to preserve the Brandywine traditions.
