Opening Reception for Mary Pritchard

Chestertown pastel artist, Mary Pritchard, is being featured in July. She will be in the gallery during First Friday hours.

July Featured Artist – Mary Pritchard






Our featured artist in July is Mary Pritchard who came to us through Paint Snow Hill over 10 years ago. Many will recall Mary’s beautiful pastels of landscapes and farm buildings. Her plein air paintings are truly small studies she then uses for larger studio paintings. In this show Free Boat is from a Snow Hill study done a few years ago.  Other paintings in the show are the result of Mary’s journeys away from her home in Chestertown. They are inspired by  fields and streams of the Eastern Shore, Maine’s rocks and waves, and barns and rivers of Nova Scotia. To learn more about her current work check MaryPritchardArt.

June Featured Artist – C. Keith Whitelock

When June arrives we all seem to turn our thoughts to the water that surrounds us so it seems the perfect time to feature the work of  C. Keith Whitelock, a well-known marine artist.  This  Eastern Shore native captures working boats in the open bay, bay side marshes,  and waterfront docks. The fine details in Whitelock’s realistic images  are of a rapidly disappearing lifestyle of working boats, small villages and derelict structures. It is always exciting to see what part of the vanishing landscape he has found to paint. This year he has returned to oil and acrylic for a number of paintings.  The opening reception is Friday, June 2 from 5 until 8. Whitelock will also be our Artist-in-Residence on Saturday, June 17.
