42 - CAPE GAZETI'E, Friday, June 9 - June 15, 1995 Teipel exhibit opens at Blue Moon in resort Sun Queen Productions has risen like a bright ray at the Blue Moon Restaurant on Baltimore Avenue in Rehoboth Beach. These rays are the work of Dorothea "Dory" Potter Teipel of Washington, D.C., who opened her one-woman exhibit of pastels and oils, 'l'he Night Club Peo- ple," there Sunday, where it will remain through the month of June. For Teipel, it's like coming home, as she has spent much time in the Rehoboth Beach environs over the past 20 years, having had eight shows at the Blue Moon in the past four years. She has also been very appreciative of the sup- port she has received locally as a self-taught artist. "Betty and Charles Palmer at Rehoboth Art League have been wonderful. When you encourage painters, they never forget it," she said, adding that she will he displaying her work at the RAL Outdoor Art Show again this summer and is currently creating a mural for the Summer House Restaurant and Saloon in Rehoboth. This collage, Teipel said, will be a seven-foot long by two-foot high piece of happy summer themes. Of her Blue Moon exhib- it, she explains that the anony- mous, featureless figures in these paintings "express attitudes and are symbolic of the people around us," as each individual reads their own expression onto the canvass. Teipel is inspired, she notes, "by politics and sunsets," painting tropical settings against ancient columns and colorful exotic women wearing hats at cocktail hour, as well as other images. Over the past 20 years, her work has grown to include watercolors, pen and ink, oil crayon, acrylic paintings and drawings in many sizes and styles. She also special- izes in watercolor animal charac- ters for children, children's books, all-age gift cards, posters and cus- tom projects and commissions. filer nine year old son Mack is an inspiration, she notes.) Following gallery and restau- rant shows in Rehohoth and Le- land, Mi., she was selected as a se- nil-finalist in a $1,000,000 nation- al contest sponsored by the Mayor of Honolulu for art and murals to be placed in new public buildings. Teipel is currently working on 'Whe Fitzgerald Series", a variety of paintings abut night clubs, moonlight and black tie. A sec- ond series, "Torch Songs", is an- derway, featuring a dozen large watercolors, interpreting familiar lyrics about love lost and love gained from songs such as "Star- dust" and 'Whe Long and Winding Road". Over the past 22 years, Teipel has become the owner of two successful small businesses - Potter Teipel Associates and Party Polities, and also represents prominent media and business personalities in a speakers bureau, Women at the Top. She and her brother Joe Teipel, a sports celebrity and business- man in Hawaii, have now joined forces in business and art opportu- nities between Washington, D.C. and Honolulu, Hawaii. They will design and promote Pacific Rim and East Coast artists' shows in restaurants, office buildings and private collections through her new art marketing enterprise, Sun Queen Productions, with formal work and show space located only eight miles from the White House. -- Rehoboth -- CARRY OUTS WELC()ME OPEN DALLY 945-8900 or 277-6700 m Stuart Kingston, Inc.
