EASTON — Do you feel the joy of living and vacationing on the Chesapeake Bay? And love all that’s fun and colorful? September at the Green Phoenix Gallery brings you fun, joyful color, with a wide array of whimsical Chesapeake Bay-themed creations by artist Ann Farley.
“I cut colorful papers by hand to create scenes and images of my favorite places and times on the Eastern Shore,” Farley said. “I love bright colors, fun shapes, crisp lines and whimsical details.”
After creating a large, colorful bicycle for the “Celebrate St. Michaels” banner program, Farley continued adding to her “By the Bay” series with a log canoe, a screwpile lighthouse and a crab. Since the original artwork sold, these four images have been popular on coasters, greeting cards and small prints. Gallery owner Andi Tassencourt encouraged Farley to have glass cutting boards imprinted with these images, as well.
The Green Phoenix will host a reception to meet Farley and see her work from 5 to 8 p.m. Sept. 6 during Easton’s First Friday Gallery Walk. Farley has created a new series of “By the Beach” originals that will be unveiled for the first time. Enjoy wine and finger foods while viewing these new artworks.
The Green Phoenix Gallery is at 31 N. Harrison St. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
