Barbara Darlin to I present 'Unlacing the Victorian Woman' Jan, 10 When a Victorian woman said she was going to dress or dinner, it may well have been 1her fourth change of clothes that day.

Costume designer an d historian Barbara Meyer Darlin's Unlacing the Victorian Woman will answer that question during her presenta- tion at 1 p.m., Saturday, Jan. lO, at the Lewes Public Library. This popular program has been described as a one-woman fashion show, a social history lesson, a conceptual-performance/lecture and a Victorian striptease. Unlac- ing the Victorian Woman is a per- formance that entertaias and in- stills a contemporarylreality to history.

Joining forces with the Charles Mills Boulevard Improvement Corporation and local artist Abraxas, the Cape Gazette has come upon the idea of creating this fine original painting as a means of involving our cause-conscious community in supporting the Charles Mills Boulevard initiative financially. Your purchase of one of these prints insures your participation in the vitalization and upkeep of the planned boulevard makeover of Rt. I between Nassau Overpass and Delaware Seashore State Park. Working with old Holland paints (preferred by Rembrandt him- self), Abraxas turned his talent toward the beach access path at Chesapeake St. between Dewey and Rehoboth Beaches for his inspiration. This natural gateway to the ocean has been used over the past few years as a symbol of the Charles Mills Boulevard ini- tiative which aims to upgrade the appearance of Rt. 1 as the gate- way to Delaware's Cape Region. Observing the site's sunlight over a number of Successive sunrises, Abraxas said he was "struck by the light filtering through the trees and illuminating the dune." Returning to his studio and often painting until 3:00 in the morn- in, Abraxas dw on the full visual spectrum of colors to recreate thin romantic sunrise. The union of paints, tools and technique resulted in an extraordinarily unique and uplifting representation of an otherwise ordinary Cape scene. In similar fashion, the goal of the Charles Mills Boulevard project is to brighten up this important stretch of Delaware highway at the dawn of a new century. When the Boulevard's aesthetic enhance- ment is complete, the result will project a sparkling presence to those who live here and those who visit. Although not many may have the capacity to involve themselves 27" "av_d Zdttio,  _a,, ,5"  z4" ,,,t ,, '9" ' 27" directly in a project of this magnitude, the purchase of this print for $100 will certainly accomplish much to bring back and preserve some of the natural beauty of Delaware's Cape Region in the midst of rapid commercial and residential development.
