John M. Barber's-Chesapeake: Opening in June 2014, this groundbreaking exhibition brings together five decades of work by nationally acclaimed American maritime artist John M. Barber. Barber has spent his career chronicling the watermen, vessels, and lifestyles of the Chesapeake Bay. This retrospective of more than 50 original pieces gathers some of Barber’s most important paintings, most of which are in private collections, providing a rare opportunity to see the evolution of his work.
On display will be “F. D. Crockett and Steamer Piankatank off Stingray Point Circa 1930 – Chesapeake Bay,” a piece Barber created especially for the Museum. Signed and numbered giclee prints are available, with all proceeds benefiting the Museum.
This exhibition is made possible by the generosity of our Sponsoring Patrons, Mary and Ted Linhart of Richmond and Gwynn’s Island, Virginia.
Admission Fee: $15.00 for a museum tour or join the museum as a family for $25.00 total and view the exhibit for free!
