Rex’s other passion was sketching and painting. After moving to Solomons he enrolled in the Advanced Oil Painting Class at the Calvert County Office on Aging, where he assisted in forming the Color and Light Society. He was a founding member of the CalvART Gallery in Prince Frederick, MD, a member of the North End Gallery in Leonardtown, MD and the Calvert Artists Guild. One of his most rewarding venues was being juried to exhibit his art at Ann Marie Garden Artsfests.
Rex was honored to be a Southern Maryland artist exhibiting his works of water, boats, sky and clouds, and his interpretation of the beauty of the barns and nature landmarks of Southern Maryland.
Rex said that “When someone bought one of my paintings I felt I had communicated with another person in this universe in a very special way and that is the most satisfying accomplishment an artist can achieve. ”
Rex was a member of the former Solomons United Methodist Church congregation.
