Oysterback ...... May ..... meets beaelt in" "at RAL debut 27 The mythical Eastern Shore town where anything can happen and frequently does will come alive at Rehoboth Art League, 7 p.m., Saturday, May 27 when "Oysterback the Play" makes its Delaware debut. For those who tuned in late, Oysterback is the name and sub- ject of Helen Chappell's column in the "Baltimore Sun". Since the column's appearance in 1989, and the release of the subsequent book, "The Oysterback Tales", last spring, Oysterback has gained a loyal following who laugh, and cry, at the doings of the denizens of this tiny village somewhere on the Eastern Shore. Mack to teach seaside watercolors at RAL May 25-26 "Seaside Watercolor Outdoors" will be offered for the fLrSt time by noted artist Matthew Mack at the Rehoboth Art League Thursday and Friday, May 25-26, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mack, who now resides in Re- hoboth Beach, retired as a lieu- tenant colonel from the Air Force after a distinguished military ca- reer, including serving as a com- bat pilot during World War II. Mack's early interest in art was sparked by his uncle, a watercol- orist, living and working in New York City in 1935. The interest was reawakened when the mili- tary took him to West Germany in 1959-61, where he studied draw- ing and the fundamentals of oil painting. In 1975 he began to se- riously concentrate on watercolor painting as his preferred medium by attending workshops offered by watercolorists in the United States.

Art Igue, Rockville, blACK Md.' s Art acters we haven't even used yet,'" Chappell observes drily. All will come to life for one night in a new version especially adapted by the author for the Rehoboth Art League performance. The stage play debuted last April in Queen Anne's County and later per- formed in Easton and will go to Baltimore this fall. Working with producer/director Earl French of Pack Mule Produc- tions and a talented cast of Eastern Shore actors and crew, the author said this has been "one of the most positive experiences of my life. Everyone's had a say in what goes into the work. Watching the actors interpret my imaginary town has Place and the Rehoboth Art League spring show. The cost of the workshop is $40 for members and $50 for non- members. Participants should call the RAL for a supply list and to register.
