This year’s 2020 members’ juried exhibitions showcased at the Rehoboth Beach City Hall will focus on “Seasons” and will include and represent the four distinct times of year along with any scenes, events, or activities associated with the four seasons.  The Seasons have always been associated as a universal reminder of the passage of time and life’s cyclical nature.  It has always been a favorite allegorical vessel for artists whether its deeply personal or simply capturing the changing surroundings. The second showcase "Spring,” will be held April 24 through July 5, 2020. Often, the change in nature effects all people. The transition from a cold winter into spring is often associated as a time of rebirth.  Buds appear on trees and grass starts to grow after winter sleep. Shades of green surface all over.  Spring is the time when everything wakes up and develops.  Flowers bloom and spread their sweet fragrance all around. Nature becomes renovated and gets ready for productive and warm months. It’s a time for “Spring Break” and being outdoors. People tend to be creative during this season.  RAL invites its members working in 2D to submit work interpreting what spring means to them. Any medium and style from traditional to abstract will be accepted for review.
