CHESTERTOWN — 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 the natural surroundings.
Curators Cindy Stafford and Anne Vansant challenge artists to interpret this theme broadly for RiverArts’ annual Eastern Shore-themed exhibit, which will be on view for the month of July.
This year’s show, Patterns of Eastern Shore Life, aims to capture 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,” a news release states.
This exhibit is open to all media.
Exhibition dates are July 3 to 28 with an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 5.
An awards ceremony and gallery talk is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, July 11.
