The Rehoboth Cultural Council and Carpenter Museum are proud to offer this unique opportunity to showcase local professional and students artists who have been personally invited to participate. This exhibit and reception are not fund raising events, but an effort to celebrate artists living and working in the Town of Rehoboth.
Below are guidelines discussed and agreed upon between the staff of the Carpenter Museum and members of the Rehoboth Cultural Council for your information. The exhibit is specifically for professional artists and student artists "invited" personally to participate.
There is No Entry Fee. Artwork will not be sold during the exhibition
however artist contact information will be clearly displayed. Additionally,
artist contact info with submitted high resolution images will appear on
the CelebrateArtRehoboth.com website along with links to the artist's
website and/or social media.
Artwork sold as a result of the exhibition will not incur a commission.
Each artist may submit 1-3 pieces of artwork for exhibition.
Two-dimensional artwork should be equipped with a sturdy wire for
hanging (no sawtooth). Maximum measure of 40 inches (longest
dimension) and a maximum weight of 30 pounds.
Three-dimensional work should be delivered & installed by the artist
with support (i.e. pedestal/stand). Note: There are a limited number of
pedestals if necessary. We recognize that some artwork may not require a
support. We ask that the artist plan to assist or advise on hanging in the
case of non-traditional or specialty art pieces.
Delivery of artwork should be hand-delivered to the E. Otis Dyer Barn
at the Carpenter Museum on Tuesday, June 14 or Thursday, June 16 from
1 to 4 p.m. The Barn is equipped with heat, air conditioning, and a
