Palmer's whimsi- cal creations are coupled with the photography of his wife and col- league Betty Palmer. The show is titled "An Environment of Cre- ations and Collections," by Charles and Betty Palmer.

Gracing the Homestead Man- sion at the Art League are silk screens by Washington, D.C. area artist Nancy McIntyre. Her lumi- nous creations depict common scenes of the Washington, D.C. area and the Rehoboth and Lewes areas among others. "My pictures are of everyday places and the way those places reflect the people who made and use them," McIntyre noted. "I want to say: treasure those old places; don't ignore them for be- ing ordinary; take a good look while they last." Emerging artist Ralph Skinner's works will also be displayed. Skinner, a student of nationally- known artist Jack Lewis, is gain- ing recognition for his powerful portraits and landscapes, often de- picting the African-American ex- perience. He hopes to become as well-known as his mentor. "The more I paint and play with oil paint," Skinner said, "the more I learn about the way paint creates beautiful pictures - by just adding a little of this and that. That's why I work and study so hard and long .. for my dream to come true," he added. All three shows open Friday, May 2 and run through Memorial Day, May 26.
