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). Shabazz's art celebrates the energy and life of African heritage within the continent as well as the diaspora, and is also reflection on his experiences growing up in Chicago's South Side. 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.
