July Exhibit Beach Odyssey
Through July 31

This is the time of year when many families begin their beach odyssey. It is a time for fun, family time, and reacquainting to the longer days and slower pace of beach life. The artists at Gallery One demonstrate their version of “Beach Odyssey”.

Our beaches are one of Delaware’s great gifts. It is experienced in many different ways. Many of us enjoy those moments when we seem to have the whole landscape to ourselves.“Just Us”, oil by Marybeth Paterson shows us “the inhibited time at the beach before the crowds arrive to embrace laughter and dance in the sand”. "First One", pastel by Laura Hickman features “an early beach-goer braving the brisk winds with towels, a large cup of hot coffee while enjoying the solitude and the beauty of the crashing waves”.

The summertime beach becomes the family’s playground. “Connecting”, acrylic by Lesley McCaskill tells a story of how the beach slows us down. “I enjoy watching the body language of family and friends as they spend time catching up along with the visual play of color and textures.“All year long families look forward to their vacation at the beach, says artist Pat Riordan. “It’s a great time for families to be together.” Her “On Vacation”, oil features family life on the Rehoboth beach.

“Fun in the Surf”, oil by Jeanne Mueller depicts the “happiness and fun of a child tiptoeing into the ocean waves and that moment of hesitation before plunging and splashing around." Tara Funk Grim’s “Beach Brellies – Oh the Stuff”, mixed media is part of an ongoing series that tackles the continual movement and constant change at the beach. “Every nanosecond the beach is alive with motion, children running, buckets dropped, towels lost, snacks found, stuff everywhere”.

“What says summer and a trip to the beach better than sharing a big pile of steamed spiced crabs? Add some tasty beer to go with it and it’s perfect.” “Beach Odyssey”, acrylicby Dale Sheldon shows “yummy crabs spread out on newspapers, loaded with spice and ready to pick.

Artist Joyce Condry explores a different odyssey in “Island Hopping”, acrylic. “Haven’t we all imagined sailing off to live on a warm, unspoiled island cooled by the ocean breeze?  It is a place where we laze in the sun all day, sipping Mai Tais and listening to calypso music.  In our dreams everything is perfect.”
