Exhibit: Our Delaware: Local Art Collected by HOF Staff
The Historic Odessa Foundation is pleased to announce the first art exhibit of the year titled, Our Delaware: Local Art Collected by HOF Staff.
The assorted artworks from the personal collections of several Historic Odessa Foundation staff members were either created by a Delaware artist or illustrate subject matter in Delaware or both. The exhibit includes 27 appealing artworks created by recognized Delaware artists such as Jeannette Slocomb Edwards, Jack Lewis, W. James McGlynn, Margery Pyle, Eugenia Eckford Rhodes, Robert Shaw, William Hank Smallwood, and Jean Wigglesworth Watson. With everyone staying close to home during the pandemic, this timely exhibit celebrates all that is local. The diverse collection includes watercolors, oil paintings, and a few limited edition prints. The title of the art exhibit comes from the official Delaware state song, Our Delaware written as a poem by George B. Hynson and adapted to music by Will M.S. Brown, and adopted as the official song on April 7, 1925.
