Exhibition 'Neighbor to Neighbor, Views of Lewes' celebrates the Greater Lewes Community VillageReception slated Nov. 9
The November exhibit at Peninsula Gallery, that opens with a reception Saturday, Nov. 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., is titled: “Neighbor to Neighbor, Views of Lewes.” It includes works by several gallery artists, presenting views of Lewes and the immediate surrounding area.
The artists include: Beth Clark, Len Garon, Bill Snow, Doris Ingram, Julie Molyneux, Steve Rogers, Howard J, Eberle, Roger Dellar, Nick Serratore, Denise Dumont and Karin Snoots.
“This is a very exciting show for the gallery,” says BJ Clark, owner of Peninsula Gallery. “Not only are there great works of art by well-known local artists, but the exhibition highlights artistically the special nature of the Lewes community.”
Further the show is recognition and celebration of a new organization in Lewes called the Greater Lewes Community Village and a portion of gallery sales from the exhibition will be donated to the village. GLCV is a volunteer driven, nonprofit charitable organization that is open to serve members in the Lewes area as of November 1, 2013.
GLCV provides support, services, and programs that make it possible for members to live independently and safely in their homes as they grow older, while remaining engaged in a variety of educational, social and cultural activities.
Founded by a group of dedicated Lewes area volunteers, GLCV is part of a nationwide “village” movement involving similar initiatives in well over one hundred communities all over the country. “Neighbors helping neighbors” is the driving force for this organization in which members may also function as volunteers, and local vendors have agreed to be participating service providers for members.
The basic premise is that older individuals will pay a modest membership fee for guaranteed access to a variety of services from vetted volunteers and vendors and the opportunity to also engage in educational and cultural services provided by GLCV.

Gallery hours are: Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; closed Mondays. For more information call 302-645-0551 or go to www.peninsula-gallery.com.
