NEW!! ACCC Artist Registry
January 13, 5-Spm
An exhibit presented by all the artists of calvART Gallery, featuring work inspired by our theme. What is a curve? The shape of a Bowl, a bend in the road, smiling lips, a beautiful necklace, the turn of a figure, a sip from a cup, the arc of a bracelet, the shape of a stone, a glass full of wine, the curl of a wave, a plate full of food, a stroke of a brush, the flare of a lens, a slumped form in glass. Come around to our reception on the 13th. We think you will enjoy this exhibit and we look forward to speaking with you at the reception. Beverages and light refreshments will be served.
The Arts Council of Calvert County is pleased to partner with the following organizations, corporations and governmental bodies in displaying and supporting local artists:
Community Bank of the Chesapeake, Prince Frederick
Community Bank of the Chesapeake, Dunkirk
College of Southern Maryland
Calvert Barn Quilt Trail - Patuxent Arts Trail
The Arts Council of Calvert County is pleased to announce the creation of the Calvert Barn Quilt Trail. The trail will feature the work of local artists who have created a quilt square which will be constructed, painted and mounted on the side of one of the many barns in Calvert County and other historic locations. The first square on the Trail was mounted on the Mulberry Hill Farm's barn on Rt. 2/4 in Huntingtown and the second square was installed at the start of the Railway Trail in Chesapeake Beach. Be on the lookout for additional squares over the coming months.
The Arts Council of Calvert County is also pleased to support the Patuxent Arts Trail. The trail features public art galleries in Calvert County showing and selling local and regional art. All of the Trail Galleries are open to the public. Trail brochures are available at all featured galleries and at the Arts Council office or - click here.
Both the Calvert Barn Quilt Trail and the Patuxent Art Trail are made possible with the generous support of the Southern Maryland Heritage Area Consortium and the Calvert County Department of Economic Development. For more information on the Calvert Barn Quilt Trail, click the CBQT logo (right).
