August Exhibit Same Place, Funland
Through August 28

This month the artists at Gallery One were challenged to paint the same subject, “Funland” in Rehoboth Beach. The lazy days of summer for many vacationers and locals includes a visit to the local family run amusement park, “Funland”. The artists of Gallery One sifted through memories and photos to attempt the complicated structures of old and new rides and to portray the energy and delight of the children in one of their favorite places at the beach!

“Funland” has been visited by children and parents and grandparents since 1962 and is filled with memories. Mary Beth Patterson’s oil, “So Many Memories of Funland” captures the excitement of the boardwalk entry way into “Funland” where children’s joy and glee are heard inside. “What is it about the beach that creates those nostalgic memories? The sounds of the games and the carousel, the smell of the ocean and boardwalk and the images...of sunbaked, barefoot kids rushing down the boardwalk with their handful of quarters headed to “Funland”.

“Lights, happy sounds and lively activity for everyone is the experience at “Funland” says Lesley McCaskill. Hearing the little bells of the boats takes me right to memories of my children and now grandchildren of the magical place. “Family Funland”, acrylic captures the bright lights and the large gestural strokes expresses the joyfulness and energy that I feel each time I visit.”

“Funland Tickets”, fluid acrylic by Dale Sheldon captures the movement of the many rides. “Funland” in the summer is full of sounds, colors, and crowds of people!  It is a fun place to be, happy chaos. Just buy a bunch of tickets, and you have fun for hours!”

Laura Hickman’s“Funland” pastel and ink shows “the end of the day when “Funland”comes alive with lights, colors, movement and happy, happy people.”
