June 29, 2019 - July 27, 2019 | All Day
Residents of Lewes and the surrounding areas are fortunate enough to have a rich art culture. Some traditional-style local painters may come to mind. You may have seen picturesque landscapes of the sea and farmland that represent our area. There is, however, another layer of the local art scene that is under-represented in the gallery setting, despite that fact that it is all around us. This is the reason that the Peninsula Gallery is excited to present, “Beyond Skin Deep,” an exhibition featuring art by tattoo artists. The show will feature pieces by several regional and local artists, who are also professional tattoo artists. This display will expose the styles and skills of the participants beyond what may be visible in their tattooing and show that tattoo artists are fine artists. Many pieces make clear the transition between drawing/painting and tattoo design, while on the other hand, when looking at some of the works you may never guess that the creator does tattoos as well. You will see images ranging from full color to black and white, from delicate renderings of light and shadow to impossibly intricate line-work. These artists have depicted flora, figures, animals, abstract compositions and more. Owners of the Peninsula Gallery, Carol and Tony Boyd-Heron, and their associate Molly Honey King, who curated the show, are thrilled to highlight these particular artists and broaden the scope of the gallery scene in Southern Delaware. They hope that the exhibition will bring together all types of art-lovers in the community and show the common ground that we all share in our visual experience. This exhibition opens on Saturday, June 29th and runs through July 27th. All are invited to the artist reception from 5-7 pm on Saturday, June 29th. All images may be viewed on the gallery website, www.peninsula-gallery.com. The gallery is located in the Shops at the Beacon just across the canal bridge on Savannah Rd in Lewes. It is open Tue – Sat, 10-5 and Sun, 11-3.  Call 302-645-0551 for additional information. Venue: Peninsula Gallery.
