(Sept. 27, 2018) The Worcester County Arts Council next month will celebrate “Women in the Arts” at the Berlin library on Harrison Avenue.

Arts Council Executive Director Anna Mullis said the exhibition is part of a larger “Year of the Woman” project that includes several cultural and educational events.

“It’s a series of events coordinated in the Town of Berlin, featuring different women in various fields, such as health, education and nonprofits,” Mullis said. “The arts council wanted to get involved and feature Berlin women in the arts.”

Mullis said the exhibition would feature artwork by women who live and create in the town, and the teachers who help instruct the next generation of artists.

The exhibition will open Oct. 1 and remain on display through the end of the year.

A reception is scheduled Oct. 10 from 4-6 p.m., with light refreshments and performances by the all-female Delmarva Chorus and by the Ocean Pines Children’s Theater.

“It’s open to the public, of course, and it’s going to be a fun evening,” Mullis said.

There is no fee to participate in the show and several slots remained open as of last week.

“Any Berlin woman artist who would like to be featured in the exhibit should contact the arts council,” Mullis said. “I do know that a lot of artists who are members of the gallery will be involved and featured in the exhibit, but because this is at the library our goal is to open it more to the community – that’s why we’re inviting artists.

“Just come and be featured, and be celebrated,” she added.
