REHOBOTH BEACH, DE
04.07 to 12.13
GALLERY 50 was one of the first contemporary art galleries to open in Rehoboth Beach, DE.
It was a dream actualized.
Having no arts management background, the first thing I did after paying the lease deposit was to purchase a book on how to managing an art gallery. The first line in an otherwise impressive-looking book read, "If you are doing this to make money, stop here," which I did.
I am happy to say the gallery is still open! Located at:
50-A Wilmington Ave., Rehoboth Beach, DE. 19971
Installation View, Fugitive Gray, Joe Cameron, 8 Sept - 13 Oct 2007
