" an exhibition of the paintings and sculptures of Lewes artist John Zacharias, opened Tuesday, August 17, to an enthusiastic crowd at the Sussex County Arts Council Gallery at Delaware Technical and Community Col- lege in Georgetown. The opening production, featur- ing conceptual montage and per- formance art, was the highlight of the evening. Gallery visitors wait- ed in anticipation for the arrival of Zacharias, who was nowhere to be seen when the exhibit opened at 7:30 p.m. Promptly at 8 p.m., the calming background music of Miles Davis' "Circle in the Round," stopped, to be replaced by the sounds of industrial rhyfluns and minor chords. Cool, white smoke, emitted from dan- gling tubes, filled the gallery, and from a disguised hatch in the ceil- ing, Zacharias emerged. As the audience shifted ner- vously, Zacharias, dressed in a white coverall reminiscent of those worn by toxic waste disposal workers, descended from over- head. With a purposeful furtive- ness, Zacharias approached the centerpiece of the show (a huge apparatus of beams, belts and gears suspended from resinated human brains), switched it on, then exited the gallery swiftly through a side door. Everyone waited. On-lookers became anxious and laughed ner- vously, as the apparatus spun its wheels and spit out a dozen brands of soap and toothpaste. Zachafias hovered in the wings, giving the audience time to "Get the Mes- sage," before re-appearing, dressed in black tie and tails, to a round of applause. "The message" of his art, explained Zacharias, is that humans, because of greed, have Oon:llla Maointim photo Lewes artist John Zaeharias stands by part of his exhibit which opened this week in the SCAC gallery in Georgetown. created a myriad of objects, sym- bolized by his apparatus, that have no meaning or purpose. "Humans really think they are doing something, progressing" said Zacharias, "but they're doing nothing but destroying the Earth. Man doesn't need seven kinds of toothpaste but he wants to make money. He doesn't see the waste of energy in that." "Man wants to enjoy music, art, but he's too busy with greed. I chose the show's rifle, Did Ya Get The Message?, so people would be forced to stop and ask them- selves that question." Symbols of greed, and man's lack of perspective, recur through- out the pieces in the show. A visi- tor enters the Gallery through a Victorian period-room. Zacharias chose the Victorian setting because he sees it as a time when man gave beauty and art equal billing with money. Leav- ing that part of the Gallery, the visitor, and metaphorically man, pass into an age where the artwork reflects man's preoccupation with greed. The paintings depict envi- ronments devoid of Earthly scenery, and many of the pieces incorporate tear drops crafted from various man-made sub- stances. The Zacharias exhibit will remain on display through Friday, October 1. For Gallery times, to contact the artist, or to purchase a piece of Zacharias' artwork, call the Sus- sex County Arts Council at 856- 5421. 'Small talk' to benefit Rehoboth Library At a loss for words sometimes? Feel weak in the knees at the thought of making conversation in a roomful of strangers? The Friends of the Rehoboth Beach Public Library offers a solution next month while doing what they like best to do - raising money for library books and equipment. The Friends' first-ever author's luncheon sched- uled Thursday, September 9, will feature "an expert on opening lines that really work, rips for the tongue- tied, the fine points of small talk and more," accord- ing to Evelyn Thoroughgood, who will chair the event for the nonprofit library support group. Speaker will be Jeanne Martinet, ("Around Town," Aug. 13), a free-lance writer who calls New York City and Rehoboth Beach home. Daughter of the Leigh Martinents of Rehoboth Beach and Baltimore, she is author of the not-all- tongue-in-cheek guide, "The Art of Mingling" (St. Martin's Press, 1992). She'll discuss the book, which was excerpted recently in Cosmopolitan magazine, and her experi- ences across the country - and on NBC's Today show - talking about it. The event, at noon at the Sea Horse Restaurant, is open to the public. The cost is $12 and reservations and menu selec- tion must be made by Sept. 5, according to Thor- oughgood. Reservation forms are available at the library. Martinet has declared herself willing to offer tips on writing and selling trade books, Thoroughgood said. She will also sign copies of her book.
