ART | 'See the Rhythm: The Art of Ya'qub Shabazz' 

Whitman Works Company this month presents an exhibition of wood carvings and paintings by East Rochester-based Ya'qub Shabazz (Sankofa Studios).

He's a former case manager for returning prisoner and youth offenders in Wisconsin, and holds a BA in Sociology from Nazareth College. Shabazz's work also serves as a visualization of his own prose and poetry.

"See the Rhythm" continues through March 3. Whitman Works Company, 1826 Penfield Road, Penfield. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. Free. 420-8654; whitmanworks.com.
