This week’s Foto Friday features two photos of Delaware Speaker of the House Pete Schwartzkopf enjoying his redecorated Dover office, featuring artwork on loan from the Rehoboth Art League’s collection. Early in 2014, Rep. Schwartzkopf wanted to spruce up his office and the RAL was more than happy to assist!
“I’m proud and honored to be able to display such historical treasures as well as a couple contemporary pieces of Rehoboth Beach and the IR Bridge at night. It makes me feel at home when I’m in Legislative Hall and allows visitors to see the true beauty of our beaches through the work of some very talented local artists,” Rep. Schwartzkopf said.
The full collection of artwork on loan from the RAL collection includes: “Towers” by Larry S. Anderson, “RAL Outdoor Show” by Hazel Camp, “Candy Kitchen” by Rodney Cook, “Eight Crosses of Lewes” by Marlin E. Fenical, “Civilian Conservation Corps Camp (CCC)” and “The Judges” by Jack Lewis, and “Homestead” by William Dec. Photographer Kevin Fleming’s “Indian River Bridge at Night” was loaned by the Kevin Fleming Gallery and “Rehoboth Beach” was loaned by Paul Rendel.
The RAL’s historic art and archival collections highlight the rich artistic and cultural heritage of Southern Delaware. The RAL collects and preserves the work of Delaware artists and the collection is comprised of over 700 works of art.
