Where are the Artists in Rehoboth Beach?
Why don't I see this kind of art in the Rehoboth Beach/Lewes area of Delaware? Oh sure, there are a lot of "artistes" but can anyone really draw and apply color to make a unique watercolor painting like the one featured above in this post?
I found this 3 foot by 4 foot watercolor painting in the lobby the Wilmington Veterans' Affairs Medical Center emergency room last week during my visit. Oh sure, there are a lot of "art rooms" down here in Lower Slower, aka Sussex County but where is the true, vibrant art? I haven't seen it. Perhaps someone can take me by the hand and lead me to an art gallery that shows such an original interpretation of the beauty that is around us.
What I do see that passes for art looks like the "art" my eighth grade class did back in 1955. It's Amateur Hour guys and gals, Amateur Hour.
