Statewide OLLI Juried Art Exhibit
Reception and Award Ceremony
The public is invited to attend an exhibit by artists from the University of Delaware’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes (OLLI) throughout Delaware. Sponsored by the Lewes and Dover OLLI programs, the exhibit takes place March 10 through April 14 at the Dover Public Library.
“We’re excited about hosting an event that celebrates artists from all over the state and showcases the vibrant art programs at each of UD’s OLLI locations,” said Anna Moshier, program manager of UD’s Dover, Lewes and Ocean View lifelong learning programs.
A highlight of the exhibit will be an opening reception held Sunday March 18, 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Dover Public Library at 35 Loockerman Plaza, Dover. The community is invited to participate in tours of the exhibit and the library, as well as meet the artists and discuss their works.
Featured above is Great Egret, an oil painting by OLLI artist Barbara Estep, which will be on display at the exhibit.
The upcoming exhibit represents only the second event to feature artists from all of UD’s OLLI programs, which are located in Dover, Lewes, Ocean View and Wilmington. Each program has a wide offering of art-related courses taught by artists who are program members. Delaware’s OLLI programs are academic cooperatives for those 50 and over. The programs’ 3,700+ members come from a variety of educational backgrounds and live in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland.
