All galleries/studios will be open from 6pm to 9pm. Other venues may close at 8pm.
Visions by Shirl (116 Hawthorn Street)
Looking for that something special? Come to Visions to check out the fine selection of hand-made jewelry, pottery, and fused glass! Also available: fine paintings; oils, acrylics, fabric pieces, and unique one-of-a-kind works.
Coldwell Banker Elite (233 Irving Avenue N)
Coldwell Banker supports Colonial Beach Artists Guild members by hosting this show which changes monthly. Local artists display fine art, pottery, sculpture, and jewelry. In addition, enjoy live music performed by Steve Griffin, along with a complimentary glass of wine and light refreshments.
Dockside Realty (104 Taylor Street)
Gallery 1 offers the creative explorations of mixed media artist Darlene Wilkinson, who states that a “constant in [her] work is the feeling of freedom and great joy.” You are invited to experience this for yourself – to “feel the way the texture flows and paint strokes play” in Darlene’s always exciting creations.
Gallery 2 will be filled with the award winning art of MG Stout. “Accomplished, prolific, boisterous, and free” are adjectives used by those describing Mary Gallagher Stout’s works. Originally from Philadelphia, she now resides in Stafford. This exhibit is your treat for your eyes. Dockside Realty provides wine and delicious hors d’oeuvres to help you enjoy your evening.
Potomac River Fisheries (222 Taylor Street)
We are so fortunate to have the amazing photographer Jay Fleming with us for the evening. His work has a special meaning to residents of this area, since so much of it celebrates a lifestyle and environment that are integral to the history of Colonial Beach. Now, his years of documenting the Chesapeake region and its seafood industry have culminated in his book, “Working the Water,” and he will be at the Fisheries this Friday, March 9. Come and enjoy his photographic prints and perhaps get a signed copy of the book for yourself or as a gift.
