"I" CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Nov. 8 - Nov. 14, 2002 - 91 Women artists the subject of upcoming Rehoboth Art League exhibit The Rehoboth Art League willhost an upcoming exhibit focusing on the work of Delaware Women artists. ally exciting because the stories of these women lay just below the surface of other studies published in the last 25 years. Gilmore was most impressed by the significant contributions of women in the arts, not only those practicing in the earlier milieu of the Brandywine School, but also the natives and those who came to Delaware and made their mark on the arts scene in the first half o the 20th century. "For example, women such as Olive Rush, who forged careers in Delaware, then moved on to other areas of the country. Rush, who settled in the art colony of Santa Fe, N.M., became known as the Delaware women artist at the turn of the twentieth century were participants on a world stage that was witnessing rapid change in social, cultural and historic spheres. A new exhibit featuring the work of some of the women at the forefront of this changing art scene will open at the Rehoboth Art League Nov. 15. In the exhibi- tion, called Almost Forgotten: Delaware Women Artists 1900 to 1950, and organized by the Biggs Museum of American Art in Dover, women artists who were native Delawareans who received artistic training in the state are featured. Included are more than 40 works - painting, sculpture and prints - by more than 20 artists from the first half of the century. "Almost Forgotten: Delaware Women Artists and Art Patrons 1900-1950" is a book that accom- panies the exhibit. The book, writ- ten by Dr. Jann Haynes Gilmore, charts new and important research about the talented women in the First State whose accomplish- ments have long been overlooked. The ground-breaking collection of biographies, essays and 56 il- lustrations complement the Biggs Museum's landmark exhibit. The book will be available for sale at the exhibit. Scholar and author Gilmore, who curated the exhibition, notes that her research has been person- ............ ``dean'' for Santa Fe women artists during the Depression, and taught young Native Americans to paint in their native styles," Gilmore said. Rush's work was widely exhib- ited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Corcoran Art Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Hoosier Salon. One of the first exhibitions in 1938 at the Wilmington Society of the Fine Arts, now the Delaware Art Museum, devoted an entire gallery to her painting. "I am happy that, with this pub- lication, these women's lives and remarkable careers can now take their rightful place within the mainstream of American regional art history," Gilmore said. Olive Rush, Gertrude Key, Wuanita Smith, Angel DeCora and Louise Corkran are names most people would not likely rec- ognize. Unlike Mary Cassatt and Georgia O'Keeffe, they do not bring to mind images of impres- sionist scenes or large flowers. Yet these women and many others were prominent in their time for their works and contributions to the arts in Delaware and beyond. The exhibit opens with a recep- tion from 5 to 7 p.m., Nov. 15, in the Homestead, and continues at the League through Jan. 26.
