REHOBOTH BEACH, DE –With a feast for the eyes, the Rehoboth Art League opens three new exhibits on Friday, September 11, 2009 in the Corkran, Tubbs, Ventures, and Homestead Galleries with a reception from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
On exhibit in the Corkran and Tubbs Galleries, is the Members’ Fall Theme Show. Each year, the Art League selects a theme and members create artwork with a connection to it. This year’s theme is “Farmers’ Markets.” Whether its produce and vegetables, vendors and customers, animals and farms, fields and equipment, or home-made goodies, artists are encouraged to be creative and as fresh as they can be.
Instead of the usual reception fare, local farmers’ market vendors including Hobo’s, Old World Breads, Chapel’s Country Creamery and Seaberry Farm will be sampling foods fresh from local farms. Invited guests for the event include Secretary of Agriculture Ed Kee and Secretary of State Jeff Bullock to celebrate this unique pairing of art and agriculture.
Spaces of Silence, recent paintings by Michael Krausz, will be exhibited in the Ventures Gallery. Krausz uses powdered pigments applied with dry brush grinding the paint on museum board. He smears the dry pigment, leaving traces of ciphers in motion. Krausz explains, “In my artwork, I’m interested in depicting limits of symbols, in showing the relationship between language and the unsayable, between sound and silence.”
Krausz is the Milton C. Nahm Professor of Philosophy at Bryn Mawr College. He also teaches Aesthetics at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. As well, he conducts the Great Hall Chamber Orchestra, comprised of 42 young professional and conservatory musicians. He studied art at the Philadelphia College of Art and has participated in many group exhibitions. Michael was Resident Fellow at the Ossabaw Foundation and his artworks have been reproduced in numerous publications including the British journal, Leonardo. He is a Delaware by Hand Master, a member of the Artists Exchange, and resides in Lewes, DE.
