Opening Reception for C. Keith Whitelock

C. Keith Whitelock will be showing with us in June. His classic Chesapeake Bay Maritime paintings celebrate the work of the watermen and the beauty of the bay shoreline.  Visit with him during the opening reception.

June Featured Artist – C. Keith Whitelock

In June we will switch gears from the colors of Jude Robinson to the calm of C. Keith Whitelock. This is what makes gallery life very exciting! Keith returns with a show of fresh Chesapeake Bay paintings. As most of our patrons know, Keith grew up in Somerset County and uses his knowledge of the area to celebrate life along the bay and marshes. His imagery is very realistic to capture the life of watermen and a disappearing lifestyle. Check his website to find out how he integrates his interest in marine art with many aspects of his life – particularly serving as crew member on the retired skipjack, Ida May. The opening reception is Friday, June 2 from 5 until 8 with tastings of California wines. Please come to find out why Keith is likely our most enthusiastic artist who loves to discuss his techniques and knowledge of his subject matter. We will have some images of his work in an album on our Facebook page

Opening Reception for Ann Hayden & Maurice Spector

In October Ann Hayden and Maurice Spector will be featured. Both artists are inspired by life on the Eastern Shore of Virginia but not in the usual way. Their greatest fascination is with the sculptural quality of birds. How fortunate we are to have each new show bring exciting art work to our walls.
