Ongoing Events & Exhibits
The Zwaanendael Museum in Lewes is currently exhibiting "Rose Color to Gold to Glowing Red: Orville and Ethel Peets in Paris 1913-1914." The exhibit features 15 paintings - eight works by Orville Houghton Peets (1884-1968) and seven works by his wife Ethel Canby Peets (1877-1955). Also displayed are an assemblage of painting materials used by the noted Delaware artists including paint brushes and palettes. Ethel and Orville Peets are credited with bringing fresh, modern ideas to Delaware after their move to Herring Creek near Millsboro in the 1930s. They each influenced the local art-scene in a profound and lasting manner by creating art, teaching classes and holding art forums. Exhibit through December 2017.
