CHESTERTOWN — The Artists’ Gallery will feature “Color Notes,” a collection of work by Mary Ellen Mabe.

The public is invited to visit the gallery from 5 to 8 p.m. on First Friday, Dec. 6 for light refreshments and to meet the artist. Work by Mabe will be featured throughout December.

The Artists’ Gallery is located at 239 High St. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday through Saturday and from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit or call the gallery at 410-778-2425.

“Color is is an integral part of my work. I strive to give viewers a feeling of appreciation for color in both linear and atmospheric perspectives. Laying down compatible colors next to each other in warm and cool tones wakes up a painting and helps the viewer define a pleasing harmony and a picture that speaks to them,” Mabe said in a news release.

Mabe’s paintings may be seen in various venues on the Eastern Shore. She has juried into the Local Color Show for six years, receiving a Judges Award of Excellence in 2015 and 2018. This art show is an annual summer event sponsored by the Working Artists Forum. It is held at the Tidewater Inn during the Easton Plein Air Art Competition and Art Festival.

In addition, Mabe has juried into the Oxford Fine Arts Show for three years from 2016 to 2018 and participated in the Easton Banner Program for four years. Mabe is a partner with the Artist’ Gallery, and holds memberships in the St. Michael’s Art League, the Working Artists Forum and the Art Academy in Easton.
