In July, Chestertown RiverArts will explore what makes life on the Eastern Shore a beautiful adventure as we ask artists to show us “Faces and Places on the Eastern Shore.”

Everywhere you look, inspiration abounds!   It is in the seasonal variations of color in the countryside and waterways where the light is ever-changing, from sharp sun shadows to stormy skies, to the soft, hazy glow of Ireland on the fields.  It’s the ospreys returning each year to rebuild their nests and raise their young, or a female duck searching for a place to lay her eggs, followed closely behind by two or more drakes, who seem to call out, “pick me, pick me!”

Exhibition Dates:  July 5, – July 29, 2018

Opening Reception:  Friday, July 6, 5-8 p.m

Curator & Artists Talk:  Thursday, July 12, 5:30 – 7 pm
