RiverArts Holiday Gift Show is Open
From November 23 through the end of December, RiverArts will be transformed into a festive destination in the heart of Chestertown for holiday shopping. Right now RiverArts Studio Gallery is filled with wonderful, one-of-a-kind works of art for your holiday shopping. You’ll find beautiful knitted and woven sweaters, hats, gloves and socks for all ages, jewelry to appeal to every possible taste, paintings, felted pot holders, hand-finished cutting boards and painted gourds. By December’s First Friday, the entire gallery will be filled with beautiful art that will make unique, very special gifts. Don’t wait too long to check them out or they’ll be gone.

Living River Opened on First Friday, November 1
Marcy Dunn Ramsey is curating the November show, “Living River.” The theme of the show is the River, but the intent is to encourage artists to look at the River (any river or its tributaries and marshes) as more than just a pretty view. Because the event is paired with events all over Chestertown, it can be thought of as part of a symphony, as a whole consisting of many parts celebrating the connections we all share. It is a joint effort to raise awareness of a more profound beauty that underlies our lives here and is symbolized by the River as a living body.
The Living River show is part of a collaboration between RiverArts and the Chester River Association.
