Juried Works from the Signature Members of the Delaware Watercolor Society

Showing September 2-30

Opening Reception Saturday, September 2  5:00 pm-6:30 pm

    We are pleased to welcome back the prestigious Delaware Watercolor Society for another juried exhibition. The show, titled “Sunrise, Sunset”, is comprised of 37 works from the society’s Signature Members, showcasing a range of artistic talent and skills.  


    The juried watercolor paintings are landscapes that capture the evolution of an environment’s light and atmosphere during a day’s beginning and end. The 15 participating Signature Members have chosen to paint a variety of subjects — from lighthouses to boating trips, sandy animals, and tropical plants. Yet, the majority stay close to Delaware’s scenery by featuring beach and water scenes. With such a range of images, this exhibition has something for every taste. 


    In 2004, a small group of artists joined together, bounded by their love of the watercolor medium. The group grew into the Delaware Watercolor Society, an organization with members from all walks of life. The society’s mission focuses on exploring, creating, and sharing the wonders of watercolor and other water media with new, emerging, and professional artists. Membership is open to all individuals 18 years or older, regardless of residency. DWS provides opportunities for education, group activities, mentoring, outreach programs, and artists' development through individual and group critiques and fine art exhibitions.


    The artists juried into this exhibition include Anne Crown Cyr, Brad Hastings, Charlotte Hughes, Christine Heyse, Cynthia Strouse, Doris Ingram, Isabel Pizzolato, Jane McElvany-Coonce, Joan Fabbri, Joan Judge, Kym Bellerose, Marjorie Wuestner, Ruth Ann Kaufman, Wendy Leddy, Winifred Way. 


    “Sunrise, Sunset”: works from the Signature Members of the DWS exhibition will be on display from September 2nd to the 30th. Works from the show can be previewed at and are available for pre-sale. 


    A reception will be held on Saturday, September 2, from 5 to 6:30 pm, with some of the artists in attendance. Call (302) 645-0551 or email for further details.

Peninsula Gallery Presents

Brook Hedge and Phyllis Berger
Photograph a Changing Reality

Showing October 7 - 29

Opening Reception Saturday, October 7  5:00 pm-6:30 pm

    The evolution of a changing reality is visually documented in our upcoming photography exhibition, “Transitions.” From October 7 to 29, works from art photographers Brook Hedge and Phyllis Berger will ask viewers to look differently at the world around them, allowing them to perceive common images through the artists’ unique perspectives.


    “Brook and her work are well respected here at the gallery; we know any photograph of hers will capture the imagination of the viewer. And we are thrilled to welcome Phyllis to the gallery with her creative narrative-style photography collection. Brook and Phyllis share an eye for similar subjects and palettes. Yet, how they see the world through their lenses allows their individualities to shine through. ‘Transitions’ is a very exciting and artful show, and we can’t wait to share it with our clients,” says Tony Boyd-Heron, co-owner and exhibitions director at the gallery. 


    After forty years in the legal profession in Washington, D.C., Brook Hedge now pursues her lifelong passion for photography. Through the years, Brook has studied with a wide variety of professionals, and her works have been widely exhibited. Brook has had numerous exhibitions at the Peninsula Gallery including a solo show in 2019; a partner show with her late mentor, Richard Calvo, in 2020; and a group show titled “I Am Woman’ in 2021. The well-known Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery in Sandwich now represents Brook exclusively. In October 2022, she and two colleagues with whom she had a portrait studio presented their work in the exhibition “Six Eyes: Common Vision” at the Rehoboth Art League. 


    Brook’s photographs explore the transitions found in both humanity and nature. Her works mix images of vivid landscapes with ghostly black-and-white portraits, contrasting the starkness of nature’s bright and wild world with humanity’s colorless reality. Despite her simple subjects, Brook uses various photographing techniques to create meaning in each picture, transforming the everyday into something profound and artistic.     


    Phyllis Berger holds an MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. She is a faculty member at the Center for Visual Arts at Johns Hopkins University, where she started the Photography program 27 years ago. Phyllis has also lectured on Photography in Ecuador, Costa Rica, Peru, Panama, The Galapagos Islands, and Croatia. She is a recipient of two artist residencies in Rochefort en Terre, Brittany, France, and has been awarded numerous teaching grants through JHU (Arthur Vining Davis, Arts Innovation). Her work has been exhibited in three solo shows at the Evergreen Museum and Library, the Museum of Rochefort en Terre, in Britanny France, the MICA Biennale, The Baltimore Museum of Art, the Banneker Douglas Museum, and the Rehoboth Art League. Phyllis’s artwork resides in many private collections.


    The 15 pieces Phyllis has on display in “Transitions” create a narrative journey for viewers to explore. The series, which she has titled “The Lifted Veil,” is her transition as a mystic traveler seeing and experiencing the world again through color and nature. The photographs tell a fictional story filled with magic, mysticism, and folklore, which serves as a metaphor for Phyllis’s recovery from life-altering surgery.  


    “Transitions” is on display from October 7th to the 29th. Works from the show can be previewed at and are available for pre-sale. 


    A reception will be held on Saturday, October 7, from 5 to 6:30 pm. Brook and Phyllis will both be in attendance, giving patrons the opportunity to discuss the works with the artists. Call (302) 645-0551 or email for further details.
