It’s mid-November and that’s a ‘BIG’ time in Maryland’s mid-shore area. Dorchester and Talbot Counties will be alive with various ongoing art events that you won’t want to miss. This weekend is the Annual Waterfowl Festival in Easton. There will be wildlife art galore at several venues and scrumptious Eastern Shore and wine.
Friend Lin Layton will be exhibiting at the photography gallery in the Historical Society Building. I can also recommend checking out the work of Chris Vignieri. Lin’s work can also be seen at Hobbyhorse Photo, along with images by friends Liz Lawlor, Graham-Scott Taylor, Will Lockwood and Jay Friedman.
Opening night Friday the 12th will be special for Gallery 26 on W. Dover in Easton. Jen Wagner and Jeff Pelayo will host a catered party featuring local band, Three Penny Opera. Art demos are planned during the entire weekend and The Duck (107.1) will be broadcasting live from the gallery on Saturday.
Of course, Charley Carter, Barbara Cook and I are on display in the “Beyond the Lens” room at Gallery 26, just behind Jen’s mosaic workshop. We will be present on Friday evening and at times during the remainder of the weekend. Come by and see some of the new images on display. You will even see some of those I’ve shared with you here.
Not to be outdone, Dorchester’s biggest photo event of the year, the annual competition, will take place Saturday night, the 13th, at the Dorchester Center for the Arts on High Street in Cambridge, when the winners will be announced. There will be light refreshments and music to charm you. Three of my photos are exhibited for your enjoyment.
And there’s still more! Saturday also marks the opening of the Art-cessories Exhibit at the Main Street Gallery, Muir Street, Cambridge. This exhibit is filled with wonderful small items that make great holiday gifts. I have a few small framed photos here that you may wish to see.

Saturday, November 13, Dorchester Center for the Arts, Cambridge, 6-8:00pm
