Show Preview | Women Artists of the West

East greets West this month at the 47th national juried exhibition of the Women Artists of the West, the oldest juried women’s arts organization in the country. The show opens on Sunday, November 5, at McBride Gallery in Annapolis, MD.
Don Demers, Moonwake, oil, 26 x 32.

Don Demers | Time Travel by the Sea

Demers continues to portray historic sailing vessels, drawing on years of experience and research—ships’ plans, historical records, maritime novels, nautical charts, photos of harbors—to assemble imagined narratives of actual historic ships.
Mark Daly, Empire Flags in Snow, oil, 24 x 18.

Emerging Artists | Mark Daly

Where Daly is these days, as a fine artist, is worth noting. He has scooped up multiple national awards for his impressionistic portrayals of landscapes, city streets, and coastal life.
Julie Bell, Hues of Sunrise, oil, 16 x 12.

Julie Bell | In Nature’s Flow

And unlike her hyperrealistic fantasy works, the compositions in her oil paintings of animals—impeccably observed and rendered though they are—possess natural, almost organic rhythms and patterns that “make it feel like real life.”
William Pickerd, Polychrome #13, alabaster/mixed media, 8 x 14.

Show Preview | A View to the West

This month that tradition continues with A View to the West, a group show featuring all-new work by more than 25 of the gallery’s renowned western artists, including Bill Anton, Morgan Weistling, Veryl Goodnight, Curt Walters, and Mian Situ.
