Variety is the Spice of Life at Candleberry Gallery in October!

Share

As fall begins and the leaves start the turn, Candleberry Gallery at 210 S. Talbot St. in St. Michaels will be changing up many of their exhibits and hosting a variety of talented artists.

To start the month, Victor Abarca, who creates his large-scale pieces using his own unique technique, will be exhibiting from October 1 to 13. Victor’s colored wax paintings have great texture and depth and evoke the lush landscapes and bright colors of his native Mexico. After the exhibit’s end, the gallery is proud to continue to display and sell his work.

Katherine Carney “Buoys”

From October 13 to 31, The Tidewater Camera Club will conduct a members’ photographic exhibit and sale at the gallery. The theme for this exhibit will be Life on the Eastern Shore, a broadly interpreted theme that includes landscape, nature, and lifestyle photography of the DelMarVa.

This exhibit will be judged by noted photographer and author, Jay Fleming. Mr Fleming’s most noted work focuses on the Chesapeake Bay and the industry that is directly dependent upon it, the seafood industry. He has actively documented all aspects of this fascinating and diminishing way of life — from underwater shots of oyster divers and crabs shedding their shells, to incredibly poignant portraits of workers in a crab picking house and watermen leaving the dock before sunrise in their deadrise boats — in his popular first book, “Working the Water.”

Tidewater Camera Club is about all things photography, dedicated to improving knowledge in the use of cameras and photographic equipment, image processing software, and improving member skills to produce quality photographs. Members share their photographic knowledge through fellowship, friendly competition, and exhibits. Club membership is open to all, regardless of experience level or age.

On Saturday, October 21, from 1 to 3 pm, the gallery continues to highlight colorful landscapes by inviting you to come meet talented painter Katherine Carney. Known for capturing coastal and farm scenes in her colorful acrylics, Katherine “recognizes she is a realist with an impressionistic view.” Check out her gorgeous paintings at paintingsbykatherinecarney.com.

Lastly, extending Candleberry Gallery’s commitment to supporting local youth, look around town for the Eastern Shore themed scarecrow designed and built by children in the Tilghman Area Youth Association’s programs and sponsored by Candleberry Gallery.
