It's All About The Bear
Sep 26, 2023
CAMP Rehoboth is proud to announce the much-anticipated return of its annual art exhibition, "It's All About the Bear." From September 14 to October 7, 2023, this is a vibrant showcase of art celebrating the bear aspect of LGBTQ culture. Join us for a free and open-to-the-public reception on Saturday, September 16, from 3 to 6 p.m. at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center, 37 Baltimore Avenue in Rehoboth Beach. This event is a celebration of art, community, and inclusivity. It is an opportunity for art enthusiasts, supporters of LGBTQ culture, and the curious to come together, connect, and engage with the works on display. "It's All About the Bear" is not just an art exhibition; it is an exploration of identity, diversity, and unity within the bear community. While bears are often associated with the four-legged variety in nature, this exhibition focuses on a different kind of bear — a group of men within the gay community who proudly call themselves bears. From digital graphics to oil painting on wood, mixed media, photography, stained glass, graphite on canvas, and more, "It's All About the Bear" offers a wide array of artistic expressions. The works not only highlight the remarkable talents of the participating artists but also reflect the rich tapestry of LGBTQ culture. A team of community members juried this exhibition. It features works by a diverse group of local and regional artists, illuminating the multifaceted nature of the community and includes works by artists JS Adams, David Camorali, Brad Cox, Amanda Coelho, Timothy P Credle, Vincent DeLissio, Maxwell Fleishman, Robert Fleming, Todd G. Franson, Jeffrey Todd Moore, Keith David Trievel, and Sabina Troncone The exhibition appears in conjunction with the annual Rehoboth Beach Bears Weekend. Whether you're a bear, an ally, or simply someone who appreciates art that transcends boundaries, "It's All About the Bear" is a must-visit destination. Join us as we explore, educate, and embrace the diverse world of bears through art. "It's All About the Bear" promises to be an exhibition that enlightens, educates, and builds community bonds. Don't miss this showcase of talent and culture.
