Featured in the Thaler Gallery:

Fitzgerald Evan- imageEvan Fitzgerald: “My current work is an exaggerated view of the ego.  What we wear can define us to the outside world. Clothing, and specifically accessories can communicate who we are or who we would like to be. We are all guilty of this, myself included. To me it seems that people today are overly impressed with themselves. Take a picture of yourself, write a caption about yourself, post it online and wait for people to talk about you. The word persona is derived from a latin word meaning mask.”

 

Damon PlForever Arriving by Damon Pla- weba: “In my paintings, I explore landscapes and surreal compositions to provoke thought and meditation. My artwork consistently exposes my obsession for late afternoon light and the subtlety of both cool and warm ambient spaces. Addicted to these nuances, I exaggerate the mood of each painting to isolate the essence of a moment in time. I believe the nature of these observations can immediately create an intimate connection so that the viewer is left only to absorb the energy and take it with them. I am fascinated by the idea that the viewer can be forced to acknowledge this relationship with a painting. In my surreal works, I attempt to capture this by arranging non-relative objects to create new relationships. Or demonstrate the extensive, labored journey of an object only for it to travel the shortest of distances. Dreams play a large part of where my ideas originate. I always sketch an image after remembering a dream, not usually for the content, but largely for what it felt like. Documenting this awareness in my painting allows me to shelve such moments as if I experienced them awake to take with me, through my journey.”

Featured in the Galleria:

Abstract, all media group show featuring local artists and members of the Art League.

In Studio E:

Treadway- CHAMPION 1Paul Treadway is a wildlife portraiture artist who works primarily in pencil: from black and white graphite to a blend of color and pastel pencil. Drawing since early childhood, Treadway is self-taught and an absolute realist with great attention to detail. Though he’s worked in watercolor, oil, acrylic, and pastel chalks in the past, Treadway consistently returns to his pencils. Recently he accepted the challenge to illustrate a children’s book and along with the author, Diana Woltereck, completed two wonderful books. “Frisbee’s Adventures and Frisbee Goes to the Beach”. The Eastern shores of both Maryland and Delaware, with the abundance of wildlife and shoreline, have been an inspiration for many of his drawings.

In the Spotlight Gallery:

Gayhart 1

Maria Gayhart. “I was born in Brazil. I was enthralled with the beauty of the natural world, especially the flowers, birds, butterflies, and seahorses—I especially liked to play with the seahorses. My feelings about the natural world have not changed in my lifetime and are what inspires my art. I did not receive art training until I came to the United States in 1969. My initial training was a mail order course where most anything one did was evidence of real artistic ability—most likely just to keep the money for future lessons coming in. My next effort started in 1973 when I began attending a junior college, after which I continued painting and drawing on my own while working various jobs. In 2007 I moved to the Eastern Shore and shortly thereafter became involved in the Art League.

 

In the Artisan Showcase:

dtruitt-hanging-bellsDot Truitt: “As a child, I always loved my coloring books and Esther Williams bathing caps. I feel these and now Cirque du Soleil have influenced my work greatly. I use high-fire stoneware clay and low-fire glazes to get a wide range of colors. I make objects for the home, including fan pulls, finials for lamp shades, bottle stoppers and bells shaped like animals.”

Robert Truitt: “I have been making tiles for about 25 years. I have mainly made them for picture frames. The subjects have been both geometric as well as picturesque. Recently I have been making trivets as well, using similar themes. It is a good deal of work but it is very gratifying.”
