"Chesapeake Street Canopy", a watercolor done by C. Viers Mace, was recently awarded a Philadelphia Watercolor Club Award. RAL's Mace wins Philadelphia Watercolor Club recognition The Japanese black pine arch- way that forms a natural door to the beach from Chesapeake Street in Dewey Beach is one of those "off the beaten path" lovely spots that the resort vacationer passes by but might never see. Now it is receiving international attention due to the award-winning water- color painted by local artist, C. Viers Mace. Mace's painting, "Chesapeake Street Canopy," won the Newman Galleries award for Excellence in the prestigious 96th Anniversary Exhibition of the Philadelphia Water Color Club on De. 15, 1996. The path to this award be- gan by having the painting select- ed as one of 122 out of 561 slides submitted from artists all over the world. The next cut found the painting selected as one of only 25 award-of-excellence winners in the show. In addition to the public viewing of the exhibit through April 5, 1996 at the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College, Collegeville, Pa., Mace's entry is also part of the exhibition catalog which is distributed to artists, galleries, and museums around the world. On the home front, "Chesa- peake Street Canopy" first re- ceived recognition at the Re- hoboth Art League's Fine Arts Exhibit in July, 1995 when it was awarded the Village Improvement Association Award by juror Richard Gaffney, chairman of the Performing and Visual Arts De- partment at Wagner College, New York. Later, as part of a one-man show at the King's Creek Country Club in 1995, the painting's dis- play gave Mace the opportunity to meet Dee and Ken Bradley of Re- hoboth Beach, who planted the distinctive arbor 28 years ago. Viers Mace is no stranger to awards in the 30 years he has been pursuing his art. In 1993, his painting, "The Loons on Nanti- coke River," won Best in Show, Best iWeroolor, andMost Ct- standing Work of Art at the 55th Rehoboth Art League Members' Fine Arts Exhibition, judged by Robert Gordon Stewart, senior cu- rator of the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. A frequent exhibitor in Delaware and Pennsylvania, Mace's paint- ings are held in many private and corporate collections such as the Hotel duPont, Delaware Trust Company and Wilmington Trust. Mace's accomplishments have come as a result of hard work. He was formally taught art by Frank Schoonover, noted American artist and illustrator who in turn was a student of N.C. Wyeth. Mace attended Penn State Univer- sity where he studied fine art and speech therapy. These learning experiences have been especially remarkable since Mace has been Continued on page 64 CA/?E GAZ]Sq[rI, Fr/day, March ,7 - March 18, 188r/. 63 Cape Henlopen Senior Center lists upcoming activities The following events have been scheduled by the Cape Henlopen Senior Center: Friday,, March 7 - Square afternoons.
