ABOUT THE COVER Jennifer Zezenski’s acrylic on canvas titled“Casting Lines”was selected as the art theme for the 21st anniversary of the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival and is featured on the poster, program, ads, t-shirts, and other collateral materials. When asked to explain the inspiration for creating this year’s original piece, Jen replied“In Casting Lines I am awestruck by our local beaches and all of the recreation that they have to offer.” Born in Reading, PA Jen moved to southern Delaware when she was eight years old. As an only child, she spent a lot of time entertaining herself with arts and crafts. Soon her curiosity led to experimenting with various mediums – everything from crayons & colored pencils to different types of paints, etc. Jen attributes major growth as an artist to her wonderful high school teachers Judith Loeber and Mark Mottlynn. After graduating 7th in Sussex Central High School’s class of 2007, Jen attended the Delaware College of Art & Design where she majored in fine art. She also studied graphic design, animation, photography, 2D & 3D, interior design and art history. After obtaining an Associate’s degree in Fine Art, Jen then attended Delaware Technical Community College to study the culinary arts. Some of you may have met Jen during the years she worked at Michael’s as the framing department manager or perhaps in her current job as a personal banker for WSFS Bank. In her spare time, Jen continues to enjoy painting, as well as collecting sea glass, antiquing, and of course, watching movies! Bids for the framed original“Casting Lines”will be accepted during the Film Festival through a silent auction process at the Cinema Art Theater. The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is fortunate to be able to feature the work of a local artist each year and appreciates his/her efforts to create an original piece specifically for this event. The Film Society will again invite artists to submit work for the 2019 Film Festival. Artists interested in participating in this process should visit the Film Society website for guidelines and due dates.
