Eastern Shore artists included are:
Carole Cascio translates meaningful moments in time through color, form and texture. She works with clay and on paper; each medium brings new possibilities for expression into her awareness. Share her process by visiting Lifesong Studio on Kent Island by appointment.
Geraldine Czajkowski’s mixed media paintings incorporate handmade papers, metal foils, and various gels to achieve textured, abstracted landscapes. Her emotional and colorful abstractions are a blending of expressionism and illustration. Her studio is in Grasonville.
Joan Hart captures the interplay between the eye and the heart. She is excited about the way color sparks emotion in the representation of form whether they be landscape, animal, or abstract shapes. She has been exploring this theme in painting since 1996.
Virginia Perram of Cedar Cottage Studio on the Choptank, works in watercolor. Her interests are Eastern Shore themes: food, landscapes, historic houses, and interpreting antique black and white photos into watercolor renderings.
Judy Specht enjoys painting people and animals in a quiet or reflective pose; she also finds expression in landscapes that help her to convey deep emotional concepts, while celebrating the beauty of everyday life. She works in oil and pastel in her studio in Romancoke on the Bay on Kent Island.
Georgette Toews retired from the Air Force and entered an entirely different world of art and creativity. Her landscapes are inspired by the beauty of the Eastern Shore and the history and charm of the old barns and water activities. She works in various media including watercolor, oil, pastel and acrylic and favors painting in “plein air”.
