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.

The Rehoboth Art League is pleased to welcome the American Color Print Society to its exhibition space. The society’s show, titled “No Boundaries: The Art of Printmaking Today,” will be on display in the Corkran Gallery and will feature pieces from its members. The exhibition will showcase how the process of printmaking has evolved over the years and will incorporate different techniques that are used in the craft today. The American Color Print Society is a national non-profit corporation with the following purpose: To promote and foster original graphic art; to encourage and promote exhibitions of original color prints; to educate art students and the public about the varied techniques of original color printmaking. Printmakers represented in their recent exhibitions have come from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, North Carolina, Kansas, Texas, Illinois, Louisiana, New York, Mississippi, Tennessee, Rhode Island, California, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Virginia and New Mexico.

Temre Stanchfield’s oil paintings will provide a welcomed change from the print work, as her solo show, “Homage: 12 Portraits of Earth,” takes over the Tubbs Gallery. Based in Southern PA, Temre used the calendar to develop 12 abstract paintings that are made in gratitude for the natural world. She describes her creative process as similar to the experience of communing with nature – the peacefulness, stillness, and a glimpse of the interconnection of all things. Temre draws inspiration from the landscape throughout the seasons near her home studio, which informs the textures and shapes found in her paintings. The homage paintings are created and installed in the round to suggest the ongoing perennial cycle, inspiring the idea of eternity, and renewal.

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.

The exhibitions are free and open to everyone during the regular gallery hours of Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday, noon to 4 pm.
