                 6 Artists “Celebrate America”

The artists in this exhibition are the six charter members of the group “6 Artists,” which was formed in March of 2012, and since then they have developed a strong voice and presence through approximately four shows annually, in such places as the Annapolis Maritime Museum, Quiet Waters Park, West Annapolis Artworks & Fine Framing, River Gallery, and Maryland Federation of Art’s Circle Gallery.

6 Artists is a professional group, with the goal of creating awareness of their individual art, and building momentum to enhance the recognition of art in our community.  The group consists of four painters – Phyllis Dixon, Patrice Drago, Gail Higginbotham and Desiree Holmes Scherini, and two photographers, Frances Borchardt and Carol Donahue.  Their individual styles complement each other’s work, creating a balanced and cohesive body or work, regardless of the theme.  Each artist is accomplished in her own right, with recognition in local, state and national juried exhibitions.  

Celebrate America looks to the roots of America, fostering a greater sense and understanding of American communities, family pastimes and what it means to be an American. Through a collection of images that depict some of America’s most beloved customs and national symbols to displaying vibrant rural America scenes the Annapolis 6 will “Celebrate America” with beautiful renderings.
