June 30 - 48th Annual Art Show

Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - On Saturday, July 5, the parish of St. Peter's in Lewes will host their Annual Art Show to benefit those in need within the Cape Henlopen School District.

The streets of downtown Lewes will come to life with the work of 140 fine artists and artisans from the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond.  Exhibitors will show their original paintings, photographs, jewelry, carvings, ceramics, mixed media creations, and more from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on St. Peter's Square at Second and Market Streets. This wonderful event takes place in Lewes's quaint downtown, with an array of specialty shops and restaurants close by.  Admission is free, and the event will be held rain or shine.

In addition to the artwork, you'll enjoy the St. Peter's Episcopal Church Women's famous turkey salad luncheon as well as the silent auction and Featured Artists' Raffle with over 80 donations from participating artists. Ever popular face painting is usually provided for children's entertainment. One can find shade and air conditioning in the 19th century church building, perhaps catching an interactive demonstration of the parish's impressive organ by T.J. Thomas, parish music director, or a tour of the historic site by Don Matthews, parish historian. Free parking is available at Shields Elementary School on Savannah Road, with shuttle service provided courtesy of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Gallo Realty of Lewes.

This annual event started as a Clothesline Art Show in 1966 and has grown to include 140 local and national fine artists, with proceeds enabling the church to support many local charities. The event has grown to be one of the region's oldest and finest outdoor art shows. St. Peter's Church, founded in 1681, offers four Eucharistic services weekly and sponsors an interfaith Summer Spirituality Series through its Seekers Spiritual Treasures at St. Peter's Square store.  Self-guided tour information for the historic churchyard is available.
