Working Artists Forum member Abby Ober will be the featured artist at the Tidewater Inn’s library room during the month of April.
Abby studied fine art at Rollins College in FL and furthered her study in graphic design at the Corcoran College
of Art in Washington DC. During this time, she also created large decorative canvas floor coverings for
private collectors. After spending 10 years in advertising design in Washington DC, she moved to the Philadelphia area and returned to her love of painting, teaching and studying with various renowned artists.
In December 2018, Abby moved to St. Michaels, MD on the Chesapeake Bay and continues to paint and teach at various locations, including Chesapeake College. She has been juried into “Local Color” exhibition in conjunction with Plein Air Easton in 2018 and 2019. She has also competed in Easton’s Plein Air’s Quick Draw 2018 and 2019. In February each year she paints with the Venice Plein Air Painters as well as the Lightchasers of the Sun Coast.
Abby says, “I am dedicated to painting colorful still lifes, quiet landscapes and seascapes. capturing the distinctive
light and patterns of color that surround each subject. A lover of nature, painting “plein air” has become
a transformative experience for me. I am inspired by master painters such as Hopper, Turner, Diebenkorn, and Fairfield Porter but am mostly inspired by the dynamics of the creative process and the challenge of interpreting a scene.
The Tidewater Inn is located at 101 E. Dover Street, Easton, MD. The Library Room is just off the lobby entrance. Stop by to view Abby’s exception paintings during the Tidewater Inn’s open hours.
