Gallery One is pleased to announce the June show, “Sussex County Farms” open to the public June 2, through June 29, 2021.

The Farms of Sussex County take center stage this month at Gallery One. While most visitors believe that Sussex County’s #1 industry is sunshine and surf, it’s actually agriculture, and Sussex County is the number one producer of chickens in the entire country! One of the pleasures of driving through Sussex County is seeing the charming farms with their barns and animals, and what’s growing. This month’s show illustrates the beauty of both the farms and what they produce. Artist Joyce Condry’s pastel painting, “Delaware Cornfield,” does both. The foreground is filled with colorful green cornstalks almost ready for harvest, providing a color contrast to the red barn and outbuildings in the distance. “Bayard Barn,” artist Laura Hickman’s pastel painting lovingly depicts a lone barn that sits alone amidst the fields outside of Ocean View, an iconic reminder of the family farms that were once our landscape locally. Leo Kahl’s watercolor piece, “Good Friday,” painted in loose lush colors, is a portrait of both a farm and a vignette of a mother and daughter collecting flowers from the unruly beds. While Cheryl Wisbrock’s watercolor painting, “Lavender Farm,” shows us very organized rows of lavender ready for harvest, in bright complementary shades of yellow and purple. In artist Dale Sheldon’s painting, “Stag Farm Orchard,” in acrylic, we are shown that moment in time when the apple blossoms are exquisitely in bloom, with the classic barn in the distance. Such beauty and such a brief moment in time! In Mary Bode Byrd’s acrylic mixed media painting, ”Land of the Free”, we are treated to a jaunty barn in Sussex county being utilized as a billboard for our great American flag, lively and full of vibrant color.

Artists Lesley McCaskill and W. Scott Broadfoot chose to beautifully illustrate our Sussex County farm products. In Scott’s oil painting, “Bennett Orchards,” he paints in stunning detail a local summer favorite, not just peaches, but Bennett’s peaches! Done in a classical realism style that makes you feel you could take a bite of that fuzzy peach. Lesley’s acrylic painting, “Sitting Pretty,” depicts a roadside favorite, lovely Holstein cows relaxing in a field of colorful green grass and buttercups.
