This April, the Rehoboth Art League is showcasing three new exhibitions that will challenge and excite viewers! Printmaking dominates this month’s exhibits, with the shows “No Boundaries: The Art of Printmaking Today. American Color Print Society National Exhibition” and “Against the Tyranny of Time: Printmaking by Mark Harris” on display, in addition to Temre Stanchfield’s solo exhibition “Homage: 12 Portraits of Earth.” These shows will hang in the RAL galleries from April 5 to May 5.  

 

On the evening of April 5th from 5-7 pm, the art league will be hosting an opening reception for these new exhibits, inviting anyone interested to visit the Corkran, Tubbs, and Ventures galleries to see the displayed work.  


In the Ventures Gallery, Mark Harris’ solo exhibition, “Against the Tyranny of Time,” adds to the printmaking medium on display in April. His work is concerned with making art that explores the imbedded social struggles that make both art necessary and a distraction from that exploration. Recent work has centered around the ways we try to remember the more than a million US Covid deaths, and how our efforts to resist despair on many fronts are met by the need for hope that is not based on false promises for an easy fix. Printmaking, particularly relief prints in black and white, provides a stark and often suggestive means of giving a visual voice to that exploration.
