  • A rain barrel painted by Townsend artist Kathi Schiavoni was selected as a finalist in the first rain barrel art contest sponsored by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) and the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT).
    Schiavoni’s work, titled “Sunset Garden,” depicts Sir Frog sitting among the flowers as he “appreciates the wonder of color, from the grasses to the dragons in the sky.”
    As one of 11 artists chosen as finalists in the contest, Schiavoni will receive a Delaware State Parks pass from DNREC’s Division of Watershed Stewardship.
    Her work also will be raffled off during the Delaware Section of the American Water Resources Association’s annual meeting.
    A rain barrel painted by fellow finalist Alan Rich of Rehoboth Beach will be displayed at Willey Farms at 4092 Dupont Parkway.
    A similar contest for young artists is currently in the public judging phase. Nineteen semi-finalists in that contest currently have their work on display throughout the state, including the Peach Blossom Tweens Co-Op, whose rain barrel can be seen at St. Jospeh’s Church at 115 Cleaver Farm Road in Middletown.
    The work of all finalists in the adult competition and all semi-finalists in the youth competition also can be seen at delawarewatersheds.org/2014-artistic-rain-barrel-contest/.
