While the Academy Art Museum has distinguished itself over many years with its art exhibitions’ quality and depth, there will always be a particular fondness and community gratitude for its annual Members Show.
Representing well over one hundred artists, the yearly event is a fitting acknowledgment of our region’s gifted painters, and it also reminds us of the unique role that art plays on the Mid-Shore.

This substantial number of creatives enrich our region well beyond what is found on their canvases, and the Academy’s tradition of putting a spotlight on their works only reminds us how fortunate we are.
