McBride Gallery, 215 Main Street, presents “The Best of the Chesapeake” the 8th annual exhibition of paintings and sculpture by 20 noted marine and landscape artists. The artist reception is September 20, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. Awards presented at 2:00pm  The exhibit runs to October 11th.

The Vision: To celebrate the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay yesterday and today.

From visiting historic square-riggers, pleasure boats, and workboats, the Bay has a lot to offer the artist. Life continues to thrive around this body of water, not just the human variety, but great blue herons, egrets and osprey that live on and around the water. The small family farms and harbor towns, add a quaintness and character along the many miles of sandy and marshy shorelines.

Participating Artists:

Participating artists are from the Mid-Atlantic States as well as from across the country, coming together to share their best paintings of the Chesapeake Bay area as more artists travel here to paint. Show artists include: Lynn Mehta, Hiu Lai Chong, John Payne, Michael Godfrey, Howard Eberle, Will Williams, Paula Waterman, and more…
