RAL inaugurates the seventh regional photographic exhibition with jury | Culture & Leisure

Robert Schock’s photo ‘Morning Light’ is part of the upcoming RAL exhibition.

On Friday, January 14, the Rehoboth Art League will open its first exhibition of the year at its historic Henlopen Acres campus. The regional juried photography exhibition returns, now in its seventh year, to Corkran Gallery. The annual exhibition invites artists from Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey and Washington, DC to submit their latest photographic work.

This year, 23 artists were selected for the exhibition from over 100 submissions, and their work represents a range of techniques and content, from traditional modernist approaches to contemporary and alternative media.

He was a founding member of the Level 3 Photographic Cooperative and teaches photography at university level.

The Rider prize selections for the exhibit represent $900 in prizes for participating artists.
