[email protected] presents Under the Chesapeake Sky


June marks the end of school days and the start of summer when the people of southern Maryland come out and embrace their place on this planet, the Chesapeake Bay. [email protected] Gallery celebrates life along the Chesapeake Bay and our community under the Chesapeake Sky.

The Chesapeake Bay is an abundant source of nature activities, from hiking to bird watching and beach time. Boating, kayaking, fishing and crabbing are enjoyed by all ages along Calvert’s long coastline. All of this inspires artists to capture the beauty and awe of the Chesapeake Bay. From Lesley Alexander’s acrylic of birds settling on a buoy in the bay, to Donna Tizol’s multimedia image of a blue heron and Mary Gault’s Cove Point against the backdrop of a crab crate. You’re sure to find something to pique your interest!

Our featured artist this month is JoAnn Laboy, an abstract artist residing in Washington D.C. Her artistic practice incorporates various materials into her work to express her fascination with shapes, lines and marks and the spaces they create – an interest which she says dates back to her love of algebra and geometry.

As a bonus, [email protected]e will be open for North Beach on the first Friday (June 3) from 6-9 p.m.

Please join us for our Opening Reception on June 4 from 1-4; light refreshments will be served. If you can’t make it to the reception, visit the gallery any time of the month to see works by local artists.

Money spent locally stays in the local economy and continues to strengthen the economic base of the entire community. Small, local businesses make a vital contribution to communities and neighborhoods. Supporting local artists allows them to continue serving their communities. You’ll often see [email protected] members supporting local charities and organizations by attending art shows, teaching workshops, and donating items for fundraisers.

[email protected]e is located at 8905 Chesapeake Avenue (near 2n/a street) in North Beach, Maryland. Our summer hours are Thursday through Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
