56 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, February 28- March 6, 1997 Rehoboth Art League launches Suv Sunday afternoons in March and April will find lovers of art and literature engaged in lively discussion at the Rehoboth Art League. A new "Art in Literature" read- ing series will begin March 9 at the Homestead Mansion on the League grounds. The sessions will be held Sundays from 3 to 5 p.m. on March 9, 16, and 23 and on April 6, 13 and 30. The discussion group will ex- amine a wide variety of short texts that show how authors and their contemporary readers viewed the art of the day. Texts reflect sentiments as di- verse as 18th century classicism and the pre-Raphaelite movement. Among the authors featured are J.M.W. Turner, Edith Wharton, and Mark Twain. Selections from the books, autobiographies and Professional acting course premieres at RAL March 17 Actor-director Martin Priest will lend his talents to the Re- hoboth Art League for an incredi- ble new addition to Art League's schedule of classes for 1997. A veteran of stage and screen, Priest will teach a long term acting class for serious students preparing for a career in television, theater or film. Priest, who studied acting with the renowned Lee Strasberg, is a member of Actor's Equity Associ- ation, Screen Actors Guild, and the American Federation of Tele- vision and Radio Actors. His many film credits include the fea- ture role in Nothing But a Man, the lead in The Plot Against Har- ry, a supported role in Zebrahead, and numerous appearances in popular television series such as I Spy, Gunsmoke, and Law & Or- der. Priest's teaching style empha- sizes encouragement and a long- term commitment to honing an ac- tor's talent. Priest, who calls the acting experience "a never-ending process," prefers to work on a re- finement of a refinement of a stu- dent's technique and approach to acting, rather than concentrate on mastery of only one play or mono- logue. The twice weekly classes will be split between exercise and scene study. The classes begin March 17 on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. and continues through October. Participation in the class requires at least some prior acting experience. The class fee is $200 per month. Those interested in signing up should call the Art League at 227- 8408 to make an appointment with Priest.
