st. peter's 58th Annual art Show

"Art that Gives"

 July 6, 2024

9AM-3PM

In July 1966, members of the St. Catherine’s Guild at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Lewes strung a clothesline across the wall in front of the church and invited local artists to display their works. St. Catherine’s was one of several guilds that women of St. Peter’s could join, and its members held fundraising events throughout the year, using the proceeds to pay for special church projects. The success of that first art show encouraged the women of St. Peter’s to repeat the event in subsequent years — and today, the show is the parish’s major outreach activity, involving the entire congregation, with proceeds benefiting multiple community organizations.


Over the years, the focus has expanded from just paintings to include works in ceramics, jewelry, fiber, glass, wood, metal, and photography, and the show now fills the streets surrounding the historic church as well as the adjacent M&T Bank parking lot. The show takes place on the first Saturday in July.


Since the 1980s, St. Peter’s has given the money raised to organizations that help people in need in the local area, and this year will be no different.  The Community Resource Center in Rehoboth, a ministry of the Lewes Rehoboth Association of Churches, is a major beneficiary of the show. Aid is given regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, color, marital status, creed, national origin, disability, or religious affiliation. 


It’s no wonder that the show’s motto is “Art that Gives.”
