Chesapeake Arts Center Exhibit Gallery

"I recently had the pleasure of participating in the Her Stories: A Women's Art Show at the Chesapeake Arts Center's Hal Gomer Gallery. It was a pleasant experience from start to finish. The staff was very professional, friendly and responsive. From this encounter alone I was able to network with other talented artists. I am looking forward to more opportunities to work The Chesapeake Arts Center in the future." - Heather A Covington

"My favorite part was getting to meet the person that created the poem I based my art from and how amazing it was to bring art and poetry, young and old together!" Jadyn Hardy

July 7-September 1, 2017

Guided Tours on August 4th & 25th, 2017 fr:9am-11am

As beautiful as a color-laden photo can be, there is something to be said about removing the distraction of hue to get to the nitty gritty of texture, shadows, contrast and composition. With Gallery 90’s new exhibit, “En Blanc et Noir,” you will find the work of several Chesapeake Arts Center Gallery artists in black and white. The exhibit will run from July 10 to Sept. 1 in the art gallery that is located throughout the Hospice of the Chesapeake’s administrative building on the John & Cathy Belcher Campus at 90 Ritchie Highway, Pasadena, Maryland. Eight artists will be featured in the show: Robert Fawcett, Brandi Foster, Wayne Johnson II, Kimmary MacLean, Deirdre McQuade, Robert Peterson, Nicolas Raymond and Erica Rodriguez. Each of these Maryland artists has been selected for their work in black and white photography.
