Friday evening, September 3, hurricane danger passed, we gathered at the Mispillion Art Leaguefor the Delaware Watercolor Society's Water Media Juried Show. Members of MAL were invited to submit work for the show and those of us who work in water media were juried along with the DWS members. I belong to both leagues and while I did not win any awards, I was honored to have my work included among these fine water media artists. All the work is outstanding and I hope if you are in the area between now and the end of September you will stop in and see this stunning show.
We were competing for attention that night from Rehoboth Art League who also held an Opening Reception for its show "Rhythm" and Tara Funk Grim's colorful paintings. Milford High School was also having an Open House to show off the new school building to the citizens of Milford, just a few of the other things going on in the general vicinity that night! In spite of that we had a pretty good turn out and everyone enjoyed the evening. Thanks to our hard working Maintenance and Exhibit committees, the gallery looked its best and I think we gained some new members that night and even had a few sales!
Mispillion Art League is located at 5 N. Walnut Street in downtown Milford. Hours are Wednesday/Thursday and Saturday 10-6 and Friday till 7 with additional hours by request. For information call 302-430-7646
