Mar 25, 2023 • 12:00 pm
Fort Miles Museum to Host Howard Schroeder Art Exhibit in March “Art Through the Ages” is the title of an exhibit of works created by celebrated artist and Lewes’ own Howard Schroeder. The art exhibit will be held at Fort Miles Museum on Saturday March 18th through Sunday March 19th and on Saturday March 25th through Sunday March 26th. Exhibit hours will be from 12:00pm to 4:00pm each Saturday and 1:00pm to 4:00pm each Sunday. There will be a $5 fee to view the exhibit, which includes admission to the Howard Schroeder Gallery. In addition to enjoying his legendary collection of artworks, visitors are welcome to tour Fort Miles Museum and Historical Area. Howard S. Schroeder was born in the Bronx, NY in 1910. He was stationed at Fort Miles in Lewes, Delaware during World War II. He and his wife Marian stayed in Lewes after the war, raising six children while Howard built his formidable reputation as an artist and art teacher. This exhibit celebrates Howard’s work - a wonderful legacy for art lovers everywhere and an amazing collection paying homage to coastal Delaware throughout much of the 20th century. Jim Pierce, President of Fort Miles Museum, expresses “Fort Miles Museum is very pleased to continue its relationship with the family of Howard Schroeder through this show. We believe it is a unique opportunity to see over 40 works of art that are housed in the Schroeder family private collections.” John Schroeder, son of Howard Schroeder, shares “Schroeder family members are delighted we can make available a number of our father’s paintings for public viewing during this show. There will be scenes of Lewes, some of which date back to the early 1940s, that local residents will particularly enjoy, as well as paintings completed during Dad’s travels abroad.” John will be on hand to talk about his father’s life and art at 12:00pm on Sunday March 19th and Sunday March 26th as a precursor to the exhibit.
