CAMP Rehoboth Announces Three Events CAMP Rehoboth is thrilled to announce three exciting November events – “Breaking Barriers,” a juried art exhibit, “Breaking the Sound Barrier: The Women's Music Movement from the 1970's to the 1990's,” and a Virtual Open Mic Night performance by Lucie Blue Tremblay. “Breaking Barriers” will be on display in the CAMP Rehoboth Gallery from November 8 through 28. The Exhibition features work by 21 artists and all art forms - painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, videography, and music. The art exhibition will be held in conjunction with “Breaking the Sound Barrier: The Women's Music Movement from the 1970's to the 1990's.” This is a Stonewall National Museum traveling show consisting of nine large panels that will be on display in the CAMP Rehoboth Community Room. Actual memorabilia from the women’s music scene - framed photos, posters, jackets, album covers and a looping documentary - will enhance the display. Both shows explore the common theme of breaking barriers. Artists will share how they have used art to achieve a goal or break down a barrier. This includes addressing stereotypes, pushing through obstacles, and using art to amplify their voice. The opening is scheduled for November 13 from 5 to 8 p.m. The opening will be held in conjunction with the CAMP Rehoboth Handmade Market, where local craftspeople display and sell wares in the courtyard. “Breaking Barriers” artists will be on hand to share their vision. Individuals can peruse the Handmade Market, then follow a path through the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center to view the “Breaking Barriers” art exhibit and “Breaking the Sound Barrier: The Women's Music Movement” display. Best practices will be followed, and face masks are required. Small group tours can be scheduled by emailing artshow@camprehoboth. There is more! On Friday, November 20 from 6 to 8 p.m., CAMP Rehoboth’s Virtual Open Mic Night will feature Lucie Blue Tremblay, a performer who was part of the Women’s Music scene. Tremblay appeared at the 1985 Michigan Womyn's Music Festival and her debut album, released in 1986 by Olivia Records, was voted Top Ten Album of the Year by the Boston Globe.
