On Friday, Jan. 14, the Rehoboth Art League will debut its first exhibition of the year at its historic Henlopen Acres campus. The Regional Juried Photography Exhibition returns, now in its seventh year, to the Corkran Gallery. The annual exhibition invites artists from Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey and Washington, D.C., to submit their latest photographic work.

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

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

Rider’s award selections for the exhibition represent $900 in prize money for participating artists.
