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 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: Bill Schmidt, Geraldine McKeown, John Payne, Lisa Egeli, Gary Pendleton, Will Williams, Paula Waterman, Elise Phillips,John Payne and more…Guest artists include Baltimore watercolorist Ken Karlic and Annapolis oil painter, Sarah Wardell.
