It seems so long ago when I would take my two boys for art classes and summer camps at the Rehoboth Art League (RAL).  As a young mother I wanted them to be exposed to the arts.  No better place to enjoy, learn and be inspired than the setting of the RAL.

The Rehoboth Art League is located at 12 Dodds Lane, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971.  Tel. 302-227-8408.  Website?  htttp://

Pretty soon the azaleas will be in bloom and this historic campus will be transformed…the flowers will be incredible.  The campus serves as an outdoor classroom whenever possible.

The Homestead has a historic designation.  Until Sunday, March 23rd a Members Showcase: Juried Drawing.  You can visit until 4 p.m. on Sunday.



Also, until Sunday, March 23rd and exhibit called Young at Art.  This annual exhibition is an opportunity for over 25 private and public schools in Sussex County to join together and feature the amazing artwork created by local students.  You can visit the Gallery until 4 p.m. on Sunday.

The RAL is celebrating and they have reason to:  75 Years!!  So many events are scheduled through 2014 so be sure to check the above mentioned website, whether you live here or you are visiting.

SALONS – “A Salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host.  It is held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation.”

During the 17th century…it was a time when women or Salonnieres were a powerful influence in the Salon.  Many ambitious women used the Salon to pursue a form of higher education.

Last June and continuing through Mid 2014 the Monthly Salons began to take place.  These salons are an updated take on the fashionable Salons of 17th century Paris.  The Salons in Rehoboth Beach will feature a unique and vibrant art related topic followed by a discussion led by a leading professional on that particular month’s topic.  After June, the Salons will take place quarterly.

Salon #9 will take place on Thursday, March 27th at Dogfish Head located in Rehoboth Avenue.  It will be upstairs.  The topic will be Art of Mixology.  It will start at 6 p.m.  The Salonniere will be Mrs. Debra Killeen who is very excited about an evening of relaxation, learning the art of Mixology and the enjoyment of a few off centered drinks from the masters at Dogfish.  The cost is $25.00.  Please call 302-227-8408 for ticket information.

The evening will combine the art of the perfect drink.  It will be entertaining, enlightening and definitely a most captivating evening!!

Please note that when in town, stop at the the Rehoboth Art League Annex on The Avenue located in the old McQuay’s building on Rehoboth Avenue, across from the Visitors Center.


Have a good one!!
