Residents and visitors to the Eastern Shore love spending their time here because of the quality of life. Much of that joy comes from the patterns found in our natural surroundings. Artists are challenged to interpret this theme broadly, capturing the beauties, and wonders of rural eastern shore life. Some artists may be inspired by the seasonal rhythms of planting, a bountiful harvest, an early frost, or how light and shadow play across a changing environment. Some enjoy capturing the bustle of parades, fairs, summer parties, farmers’ markets. Others are taken by the wildlife and still others by the water. Artists are asked to capture the patterns that can be seen all around us in the life on the eastern shore. Open to all media.
