CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 6 - March 12, 1998 - 77 Jen Ellingsworth photo RAL moves into Lewes classroom Lewes Middle School eighth-graders Katie Heronemus, left, and Tara Mitchell examine Canadian Inuit soapstone sculp- tures during a special exhibit provided by the Rehoboth Art League on Feb. 18. During the month of February, Shontelle Schmidt, education and outreach coordinator, took the art league's "Northern Images" exhibit, which includes contem- porary fine art of the Canadian Inuit and Northwest Coast Native people, on the road to local schools. Schmidt said the art league had reached approximately 512 students with the exhibit, which was on display at the Homestead in Henlopen Acres. RAL offers 'Manet, Monet, Impressionist' tour to D.C.'s National Gallery on June 23 The Rehoboth Art League will sponsor a tour to see "Manet, Monet and the Impressionists at the Gare St. Lazare," at the Na- tional Gallery of Art in Washing- ton, D.C., on Tuesday, June 23. The tour will depart at 8 a.m. for Washington, arriving at the Na- tional Gallery at 11:30 a.m. Par- ticipants will have lunch on their own in one of the gallery's restau- rants before the tour begins at 1 p.m. One of the National Gallery of Art's most admired, yet enigmatic paintings is Edouard Manet's "Gate Saint-Lazare," a symbol of all that was energetic and positive in modem life and a focus for in- terest for artists such as Monet and Calllebotte. In addition to major paintings by Manet and others, a group of related drawings, prints and pho- tographs is included to give tour- goers a sense of Manet's master- piece in its time and place. There will also be time to view other exhibits or to browse in the museum's gift shop. The tour will leave Washington at 4 p.m., with an expected arrival back in Rehoboth Beach about 7 p.m. The tour price is $38 for mem- bers of the art league, due at the time of registration, and $43 for nonmembers. A minimum of 30 paying passengers is required for the operation of the tour, which may be canceled in the event that fewer than 30 people register. Re- funds will be given to cancella- tions received before May 23. For more information or to reg- ister, call Footloose Tours at 684- 3200.
