Juried Show Registration Open May 15 through June 29.
The former Chestertown Arts League’s Annual Open Juried Art Show had a run of 64 annual shows through April of 2012, bringing together fine works of art from regional artists. Following the merger of the Arts League with Chester River Artworks to form Chestertown RiverArts, the new organization is proud to continue this tradition with the first annual Chestertown RiverArts’ Open Juried Fine Art Show. The new show is scheduled for September 2013 and will be mounted in RiverArt’s new galleries in downtown Chestertown. The Juror will be David Grafton of Easton and the Judge will be Mary McCoy of Centreville.
Registration for the show will be done on-line via this web site and images of work will be submitted via email at registration.

The Judged Members Show Open on First Friday, June 7
Work from RiverArts’ member base is on display at the Judged Members Show opened on First Friday, June 7 with a reception form 5 to 8:00. The curators, William Brockscmidt and Kate Bursick, have invited all member artists to submit artwork to the show, which will feature works in photography, acrylic, mixed media, fiber, sculpture and pastel.
Local talents Alex and Kelly Castro will be judging the show and awarding cash prizes sponsored by the Peggy Blades Memorial Awards for Best in Show and 2nd Place for both two-dimensional and three-dimensional artwork. Several Honorable Mentions will also be chosen.
Alex Castro is an art professor at Washington College, the architect for the Visionary Museum in Baltimore among others and the curator for many stimulating exhibitions at the Kohl Gallery. Kelly Castro, an art lecturer and art photographer, was recently featured at the Carla Massoni Gallery with her stimulating and beautiful photographs.
Our curators are new members of RiverArts this year. Kate Bursick is the managing director of the Garfield Center for the Performing Arts and is curating her first show for RiverArts as part of the ongoing collaboration between Garfield Center and RiverArts. William Brockschmidt, an IT software developer and real estate agent, moved to Chestertown in December with his family and hopes to renew his artistic pursuits his scarce free time.
