CAPE GAZETIE, Friday, October 10. October 16, 1997 - 73 Murals on display at Rehoboth Art League through October The Rehoboth Art League will sponsor an exhibit representing the flourishing, yet diverse Latino community in Georgetown and other areas of Sussex County. The exhibit will be on display through the end of October. One of the two murals being ex- hibited, "A Guatemalan Village Festival," is a stunning piece which was the combined effort of Juan Perez Morales and art stu- dents from Sussex Central High School. It was created with the support of the Department of Natural Re- sources' Delaware Folklife Pro- gram. Morales was selected as the artist-in-residence because of his traditional style of painting and subject matter taught to him by el- ders in his native homeland of Guatemala. His residency at the high school was an effort to pro- mote an appreciation for the cul- tural contributions of others to our community. The 12-foot by 7-foot mural will have a permanent hanging place in the Indian River School District following several exhibits. "The Rainforest," a charming mural done in soft pastel colors, was created as part of an artist-in- residency with the Indian River Summer Migrant Program. Sup- ported by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, artist Yolanda Chetwynd of Newark worked with migrant stu- dents ranging in ages from five to 16 years of age. The students, many of whom come from Central and South America, painted a scene which might be found in a rainforest. The innocence and imagination of the painting is evocative of the style of Henri Rousseau, in that the majority of the students have never seen a rainforest. Also included in the exhibit are individual pieces done in oil, pas- tel, mixed medial and pencil creat- ed by two teenagers. Sussex Central High School students Mark and Ed Ruiz pre- Schroeder exhibit opens at History Museum Oct. 10 A retrospective memorial exhi- bition of works by Lewes artist Howard Schroeder ( 1910-1995), will open to the public Friday, Oct. 10, at the Delaware History Museum. More than 75 of Schroeder's works will be show- cased, including his prize-winning entry from a 1942 art competition published in that year's "Life" magazine, and works he created at the time of his appearance on CBS's "Sunday Morning" TV program in 1987. Schroeder's drawings, prints, watercolors and oil paintings record the changing life of Southern Delaware from the 1940s to the 1990s. A com- mercial artist from New York City, Schroeder was stationed at Fort Miles in Lewes during World War II. He fell in love with the area and made it his permanent home. Lewes and other nearby fishing villages became his domi- nant artistic subjects, and for half a century, he illustrated their evo- lution from quiet commercial ports to bustling vacation commu- nities. Schroeder depicted South- ern Delaware's historic heritage. Like French impressionist Claude Monet in his Rouen Cathedral se- ries, Schroeder portrayed a fa- vorite group of three Lewes build- ings in all seasons, weather, light and atmosphere. These paintings, in a variety of media and styles, will be a special feature of the ex- hibition. "Howard Schroeder's Delaware" will run from Oct. l0 to Feb. 28, 1998, at the Delaware History Museum, located at 504 Market Street in Wilmington. Ad- mission is free. The museum is open from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Born in the United States, their work shows little influence from their cultural heritage; rather it reflects their in- dividual interests and perhaps the sophisticated ideas found in the formal study of art.
