Circle game: The exhibition, "Out of the Sphere: The Photography of David L. Rehrig,'' continues through Jan. 11, Ambre' Studio, 310 W. Broad St., Bethlehem. Rehrig's digital images, including "Sun on the Sea," above, explore the sphere. "Like crystal balls, spheres hold inner truth, broad reflections, and pensive stares," states the Bethlehem resident. "It is only fitting that these photographic images will be displayed in an 1888 former pharmacy, designed by prominent architect A. W. Leh, a structure that now serves as a fine art gallery and event venue, where modern examples of the powerful potential in photography concentrate the essence of an image," says Evelyn Beckman, Ambre owner. Gallery hours: 11 a.m.- 6 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or by appointment. Information: 610-428-2484, 610-974-8480
