The Ro­tary is aim­ing for more than 70 artists from through­out the Del­marva Penin­sula to ex­hibit their wide range of tal­ents. In­cluded in the orig­i­nal of­fer­ings are paint­ings, pot­tery, bas­ketry, stained glass, wood carv­ing, jew­elry and pho­tog­ra­phy. In ad­di­tion, there will be fun-filled ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren.
