Rick Bisgyer Porcelain


321 Ericsson Ave. Betterton, MD 21610 / 941-524-2720


As a porcelain artist I create wheel thrown vessels inspired by the graceful curves of sails and hulls, and the ever-changing character of wind over water. Porcelain is the most demanding of all clay bodies and my extreme shapes are a constant challenge, yet a feeling of effortlessness and serenity is conveyed through these pieces. My glaze colors reflect the sea and sky as they change through the day bringing a sense of upward movement and lift that complements the narrow based, broad shouldered forms. I work to create beauty and a sense of peace as I strive to stay centered through clay.

Fairlee Forge


22540 Goose Hollow Dr. Chestertown, MD 21620 / 410-458-0948


I'm an artist, a maker, printmaker, blacksmith and teacher. My portfolio ranges from sculptural steel structures both large and small, assemblages made with found objects, outdoor installations, forged functional objects and works on paper. I often incorporate other mediums depending on the project, including glass and wood. My creative process is driven by investigation and research; though my primary medium is metal, I’m fascinated by cellular structures and articulated mechanisms, all metaphors for human form and feeling. For me, the creative process is contextual to my past experiences working as a nurse, and the awe of "being" in the world.

Fredy Granillo is a Chestertown based artist from the tiny and turbulent country of El Salvador, Central America. He has been painting "Talavera" style pottery since he was 11 years old, and he later studied visual arts and ceramics at the Salvadoran National University. His exploration of this traditional decorative style has evolved and flourished since his transition to the United States. His brand "Pajarito" or little bird, is a nod to the resilience of his people who practice grace and ingenuity to survive each day.

6281 Tolchester Road, Rock Hall MD 21661 / 215-586-1376


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.

Our art is about how we see nature and how we understand our place within it. We draw inspiration from our immediate environment and from folklore and archetypal motifs that reflect how people have traditionally approached their relationship with the earth. Working in a kind of collaboration with nature, we allow each artwork to arise from curiosity about a certain natural phenomenon, perhaps a lost feather, bleached bone, gesture of a sprouting plant, pattern in the river’s waves, or slowly decaying tree. Making gentle alterations that focus the eye and the mind, we work to honor its patterns and processes and its role in the larger environment. We work in various mediums, including painting, drawing and photography, but focus primarily on natural materials such as branches, vines, oyster shells, stones, bones, and feathers. Most of our works are large, site-specific outdoor sculptures, however our studio work includes smaller sculptures, drawings, paintings, poems, and artist’s books usually incorporating natural materials.

Guest Artist @ Robert Ortiz Studios 207 S Cross St. Chestertown, MD 21620


I received a BA in Studio Fine Arts from Marist College in 2005, and an MFA in Printmaking from Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas 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. Traveling and exploring is an enormous source of inspiration to my work. 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.
