Celebrating Art and Conservation in Chestertown

With Spring as the advent, April is the month of renewal and re-birth. So it’s fitting that Greg Mort ArtApril is the time Chestertown’s RiverArts celebrates each April by hosting the The Art of Stewardship Exhibition.

Artists and poets are invited to submit work that was inspired by nature through inspiration or reflection with the theme “Convergence at the Edges.”

Two and three dimensional artwork is also considered in this year’s exhibition.

The judge for this year’s exhibition of 2-3 dimensional art will be Greg Mort, considered to be one of America’s foremost contemporary artists of our time. As you can see from the watercolor painting, his work is truly extraordinary!

Basically self-taught, Mr. Mort’s work has been included in the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian,¬†Bradywine River Museum,¬†Academy Art Museum,¬†Portland Museum of Art, and the Delaware Art Museum.

If you have a great appreciation for art, we guarantee you’ll love this exhibition!

Additionally, Andrew McCown will judge poetry entries. As an Associate Director at Echo Hill Outdoor School, a current as well as founding board member of the Chester River Association, and an environmental educator, he has a passion for poetry.

The exhibition runs April 7-23. It’s a great place for art lovers to view the extraordinary work of contemporary artists!
