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

Free Admission!

Join us on May 11th, 6-8pm for the opening reception of Painting by Plane: The Photography of Peter Stern at the Chesapeake Arts Center. This exhibition features the work of aerial photographer, Peter Stern. 

Peter Stern In Peter Stern’s photography, viewers see the Mid-Atlantic from a unique and intimate perspective. Flying low, slow, and alone in his small airplane over the coal mines of Pennsylvania and the coastal landscapes of the lower Eastern Shore, Stern conveys an intimacy with his subject that echoes his deep personal connection to the region. With the ability to fly between 500 and 800 feet above his subjects, and shooting primarily in “bird’s-eye” perspective, Stern discovered that he could create compositions with minimal reference to recognizable objects. These images occupy a place between the abstract and the representational, which Stern refers to as “Third Spaces”. As his preferred subject matter, these landscapes are not the sweeping vistas of natural splendor often seen in aerial photography. Rather he interprets the “in-between” spaces: the odd, unusual, and overlooked landscapes that provide deep visual intrigue.

The UMBC student curators include Valentina Anyanwu, Maggie Frost, Nicolle Konkel, Selene LaMarca, Sheila McFarland-Holt, Adam Stevens, and Kelly Thompson.
