“Route 18: County Road” Subject of Exhibit

In April the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council’s Centre for the Arts will host the artwork of A.R.T. East members. Displaying works in different media, the show invites viewers to take a new look at this often traveled Eastern Shore road. “Route 18: Country Road” combines the everyday objects that the route holds with new and compelling perspectives captured by photography, oils, watercolors and more. The road holds interest to artists and the community as it weaves in and out of populated and farming areas, public parks, wildlife habitat, industrial parks, shopping centers, trails, and waterfront. This state highway is a mere 20.37 miles of road, but it contains a myriad of interest points all conveyed with a new perspective.

Thirty regional artists are participating in this multi-media exhibit. Jewelry, photography, oils, watercolors, pastels, acrylics and mixed media are presented in this unique show that showcases this familiar country road.

An opening reception will be held at the Centre for the Arts on Friday, April, 13 from 5:30-7 p.m. The show runs from April 13 through May 5 during regular business hours.

Exhibits are presented by the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council and sponsored by the Maryland State Arts Council. Contact the Arts Council for additional information at 410.758.2520 or arts4u@arts4u.info
