After earning his BFA degree, he returned to New York and worked as a photographer at three independent photographic studios. Through June 10. Rehoboth Art League.

Sublime - A Horticultural Exploration: Horticulture has played an important role in the Rehoboth Art League's environment since the Corkrans first cultivated the Homestead Garden in the 1930s. Except for a few variations, the garden has remained unchanged for decades. This juried members exhibition, which takes place in the Homestead, is a tribute to the essence and beauty of the plant world. Rehoboth Art League member artists working in both 2-D and 3-D media were invited to participate. Through June 10. Rehoboth Art League.

Untitled - New Works by Ruri Yi: Baltimore artist Ruri Yi's work addresses the images that reflect her daily life. While looking at her surroundings, she tries to see forms, colors and surfaces and then analyzes and transforms them into varied surfaces, reinterpreting elements of the urban landscape and its in-between spaces. Her paintings depict static, abstracted images of these landscapes through the use of hard-edged lines, minimalist compositions, symbolic figures, and balanced color producing a simplified version of how she sees the world. Through June 10. Rehoboth Art League.

Simplicity - New Works by Howard Eberle: Howard Eberle celebrates the philosophy of Japanese minimalism in creating watercolors that fall outside of tradition in both style and execution. In this selection of new and award-winning works the artist challenges himself visually to create paintings that are understated, the goal being to refrain from adding that which is not absolutely necessary. In doing so, it is the artist's hope that the viewer experiences a moment of quietude in our otherwise busy lives. Through June 10. Rehoboth Art League.
