The Best of the Chesapeake

The Vision: To celebrate the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay of yesterday and today.
Exhibition: September 14 - October 5, 2014

The beauty of the Chesapeake Bay and environs have been captured by photographers and artists for years. From colonial sea battles to visiting historic square-riggers, steamboats, graceful skipjacks,
bugeyes and log canoes to its unique octagonal lighthouses, the Bay has much to offer the artist.

Life continues to thrive around this body of water, not just the human variety, also great blue heron, crabs, rockfish, and osprey make the water, marshes, inlets and islands their home.  Family farms and harbor villages, still tied economically
to the Bay, add a quaintness and historic character along the miles of sandy or marshy shorelines.
