This spring, in response to Covid-19, we moved many of my gallery's artistic offerings to an "al fresco" exhibit in the large finished garage attached to it. This accomplished the goal of being able to be open while helping our clients - and us - feel safe in this unusual time.
With the large garage door and three windows open and fresh air circulating freely, it is like being in the open but with protection for the art overhead.
Everyone has been compliant with our requirements for face masks, hand sanitizing and social distancing and I thank you!
We've had a lot of favorable comments about our temporary display space. Please click here if you'd like to read a few.
Please note: All original paintings are kept inside the climate controlled, secure interior and may be viewed by appointment following CDC guidelines.
Curbside viewing and pickup are also available by calling (302) 539-3405.
A little about the artist who started this gallery 21 years ago "on a wing and a prayer"
Delaware painter Ellen Rice is acknowledged widely as one of the Mid-Atlantic Coast's most collected artists.
Working from her home on the edge of an ecological preserve a mile from the Atlantic Ocean and her new public studio, gallery & learning center nearby, her paintings and prints reflect a great love of the natural beauty around her, her appreciation of the good that exists everywhere, and her constant quest to understand and share the meaning of this journey we call life.
From her nationally bestselling Treasure Beaches of the Mid-Atlantic map and luminescent seascapes and landscapes to her touching human and animal portraiture and inspirational Strength of Woman series, her work is found in private, corporate, educational and government collections in 14 countries on 4 continents.
These pages provide a way to begin exploration and collecting. The paintings and their reproductions are always better seen in person. You are invited to visit her studio on the Cedar Neck Peninsula of Ocean View, Delaware, to meet the artist and further your exploration of her work. Also feel free to message her through her Contact page. The studio is open all year. See hours at the bottom of this page.
