The Rehoboth Art League held an opening reception for three exhibits March 28. In the Corkran Gallery,  So, Il Perspective: Re-Imagined Landscapes opened with artists David Linneweh and John Reddington. In the Tubbs Gallery, Kristen Woodward of Reading, Pa., presents her exhibition titled 144 Degrees: Encaustic Paintings. And featured in the Homestead Gallery is a Members’ Showcase titled Lost at Sea.

Shown in the Corkran Gallery are (l-r) Exhibition Manager John Mosher, artist John Reddington and artist David Linneweh. Reddington’s paintings are on the left.

In Reddington's artist statement he writes, “The paintings produced for So Il Perspective: Reimagined Landscapes represent a specific time frame of experience within the southernmost region of Illinois. David Linneweh and my concept for this series of work was to revisit the area of So Il, a place in which we both went to graduate school together, lived together and shared together. This system of revisiting came by shared and individual experiences within the culture and landscape of southern Illinois. Reference to these places came in the form of old shared photographs, Google maps street view, memory and conversation.”

In Woodward's artist statement she writes, “Generally speaking, my imagery explores mankind's ‘true nature’ in the physical and spiritual sense. These works are intended to be evocative of a state of being, and are not necessarily didactic in their storytelling. They include humans and animal relationships to express ideas of stewardship, companionship and destruction. Throughout the works animals, fruits and figures intermingle with ancient weapons and technological wonders.” (Photo by: Steven Billups)
