Color and Light Society Art Show at Calvert Marine Museum
The Color and Light Society Art Show returns to the Calvert Marine Museum on Friday, June 1 during First Free Friday and continues through June 12. See the impressive work with a variety of oils, water color, acrylic, sculpture, photography, and multi-media.
The Color and Light Society began as an informal group of artists taking advanced oil painting classes with Elizabeth Bygler of Leonardtown, Maryland. Everyone believed that exhibiting one's art encouraged learning, development and pride of original work. Incorporated and granted non-profit status in 2004, the group first began exhibiting their work in the Annmarie Garden Community Gallery and currently has 24 active artist members. As a group these artists have volunteered in many local activities for children such as Sharkfest at the Calvert Marine Museum and the kids' craft tables at Artsfest. Color & Light has also exhibited at Annmarie Garden Artsfest, Calvert Marine Museum, Sotterley Plantation Winefest as well as the Solomons Island Gazebo shows. Outstanding examples of Color & Light Society art can be seen in galleries in the tri-county area of Calvert, St. Mary's and Charles counties.
The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Museum members and children younger than 5 are always admitted free. Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and military with valid ID and $2 for children ages 5 and 12.
