060117ralGetting in the Mood with Light and Shadow, through June 11th

Just as the amount and quality of lighting influence the way people feel in real life, artists can adjust the mood in their works by playing with light and shadows. In this exhibition, member artists were asked to explore this interplay between light and shadow, either dramatic or subtle, to create and intensify the overall mood of their work. There were over 90 works of art submitted for review. Rehoboth Art League.
