Guest Artist @ Birdsong Studio , 5 Sixth Avenue, Betterton, MD 21610
Joy's fun "infinity" bracelets and necklaces are inspired by the colors and textures of combinations of glass, shell, crystal, porcelain and silver plated tube beads and charms. These are strung using a strong .8 mm elastic cord. Joy's wearable art is easy to wear, no clasps to struggle with. Stretch it on and it goes "round and round". Her popular bracelet/necklace can be triple wrapped as a bracelet or simply worn as a necklace. Earrings and kids jewelry are also available.

I have been weaving for over 15 years. I am constantly exploring new techniques and weave structures. My scarves and shawls are one-of-a-kind pieces. My household lines are mostly a limited run with a few unique pieces included. At times I do commission pieces so if you don’t see what you’re looking for ask me about it.

The Eastern Shore's landscape, waterways and open skies provide daily inspiration for creating images, both representational and non-objective. The challenge is to convey the emotions inherent in the process of applying paint to canvas and paper.

23441 Cacaway Farm Lane, Chestertown, MD 21620
I draw and paint in graphite, Prismacolor pencil, acrylic, and oil. I am inspired by the overt beauty found in the world along with the collateral, or unintended, beauty life reveals to us when we’re bold enough to look. Persistent subjects and themes in my work are birch trees, oysters, Canada geese, and more recently, capturing the strength and beauty of our differences in a climate of deep racial, political, and moral divide.

Guest Artist @ Robert Ortiz Studios, 207 S. Cross Street, Chestertown, MD 21620
Kevin's highly original work is painted on glass, from behind with acrylics and other mediums.
“This is what God led me to, and me saying thank you to God. I use acrylic latex with other mediums on glass, painting blind from the back of the glass. I started pencil drawing in the seventh grade. Painting came later. God and recovery is why I got back into painting on glass after 30 years."

I take advantage of all the surroundings....bay, sky, and gardens from which I get my inspiration. For me, it's all about the Eastern Shore and what it offers. Since my studio doubles as my dining room, I work small! I even do miniatures.

photography, metal and mixed media, wood sculpture
6281 Tolchester Road, Rock Hall, MD 21661
I create sculptures in stainless steel, wood and found objects. Most of my major public works have been stainless steel horses. After years of working with other materials which require varying degrees of maintenance to retain their pristine looks and survival, stainless seems to be the material of choice. The artistic challenge is to take a heavy, lifeless material, unlike wood, and evoke a sense lightness and movement. Many of the wood sculptures use branches from trees I have known. With all my work, there is an environmental consciousness.

Pastel is a direct and colorful medium, ideal for depicting my favorites subjects--the landscapes of Maryland's' Eastern Shore, coastal Maine and rural Nova Scotia. I enjoy sharing this fascinating medium with students and visitors beyond the formality of gallery openings. A studio visit is a great way to see the entire process, from beginning sketches to the finished pastel.

Guest Artist@ Roberta Ingram - La Dolce Vita Studio, 22930 Fairgale Farm Lane, Chestertown, 21620
Coming back to drawing and painting after sixty years, I am enjoying experimenting with subjects and mediums. From taking photos, to deciding on what to capture from them, and to discovering how to convey what is there; the entire process never stops widening and having its own fascination for me.

Mixed media, Photography, Printmaking, Bookmaking
I received a BA in Studio Fine Arts from Marist College in 2005, and an MFA in Printmaking from Kansas State University in 2008. I utilize various art techniques including printmaking (etching, mezzotint, woodcut, monotype), bookmaking, painting and photography. My subject matter mainly stems from my love of nature. My style comes from my love of black and white photography, high-contrast images, and the energy from lively, vibrant colors. I currently live and work in Chestertown, Maryland.

Guest Artist @ RiverArts Education Center, 200 High Street, Suite A, Chestertown, MD
I am a local fiber artist and basket weaver. I use unique and indigenous materials, as well as materials I bring back from my many travels. My work ranges from traditional, sculptured, to contemporary. Some are utilitarian and decorative, while others are purely decorative. My work reflects the beauty I see in the world around me and the natural surroundings here on the Eastern Shore.
25729 Pearce Way, Chestertown, MD 21620
When I retired, I wanted to open a yarn shop to share my love of knitting. What I really wanted to do was knit and teach the love of knitting. With the help of world class knitting instructors, I learned not only how to make my garments handmade rather than homemade, but also how to teach others to do the same. I have taught in Maryland and Maine for 18 years. In my NEW studio you will see beautiful designer garments made with the best yarns in beautiful colors and color combinations.
