A collection of art works by VIA members. ARTS chairman, Faith Duncan views this exhibit as a continuation of the presentations Ethel Leach, the dean of Delaware women painters, held at the VIA building during the 1920ís.
In those days, Ethel Leach, a prominent student of Howard Pyle, established her studio in the Pines adjacent to Henlopen Acres. Other artists and friends frequently gathered at her home during the summer months. Ethel, who had become a VIA member, encouraged them to display their works at shows she and the Arts Chairman organized together. In the manner of Ethel Leach, Faith Duncan, an artist herself, has encouraged her friends and fellow members at the VIA to share their artistic creations with the public. Known local artists such as Fay Kempton, Joanne DeFiore, and Carmela Coleman will be represented along with more than a dozen others. Most art works will be offered for sale.
