Nicholas Serratore named new exhibitions director at Rehoboth Art League

Feb 10, 2019

The Rehoboth Art League (RAL) recently named a new exhibitions director.

 

 


Nicholas Serratore will now handle exhibitions and art displays in all of the galleries at the Art League’s historic Henlopen Acres campus in Rehoboth Beach.

Serratore says his career has been full of art and advertising.

“I was art director in Philadelphia from 1990 to 1995 for Electric Factory Concerts. And I moved to Lewes, Delaware in the mid ‘90’s right after that and bought a gallery, an existing art gallery called the Saxon Swan Art Gallery in Lewes, Delaware,” said Serratore.

Serratore sold the Saxon Swan in 2005 and went to work in the Studios on Walnut in Milton for several years.

 

He served as art instructor and Gallery manager for RAL from 2008-2012.

“And after that I went on my own and followed my dream of becoming a full-time artist. And my passion was still working in a gallery, working with artists; this job became available and I went for it. I’m so glad to be back,” Serratore said.

 

Serratore says as an artist himself  he understands the creative needs of the more than 700 members who exhibit their work at the Art League.

 


Serratore says the Rehoboth Art League started more than 80-plus years ago and today the non-profit has more than 700 members.
