Gallery One is a fine art gallery owned and operated by a group of local artists hailing from the Maryland/Delaware shore area. The Gallery was established in 2005 and moved to its current location in 2009, where it nearly doubled its exhibit space. More than twenty-two artists and artisans fill the space with original work and fine art reproductions ranging from paintings and multi-media flat art, to glass, photography, pottery, sculpture and textiles. The interior of the gallery belies its simple exterior, boasting a subtle and sophisticated setting to complement the beauty of its contents.
The fifteen artist/owners offer a wide variety of styles and mediums. Subject matter covers a broad spectrum ranging from local scenery and seascapes to studies of the European countryside; floral, still lifes, figures, portraits and surreal renderings, are all offered in traditional and contemporary treatment. The gallery is refreshed on an ongoing basis, and the entire space is re-hung once a month to ensure that customers are treated to the most recent and best work available. A special theme exhibit is displayed each month, in which each of the artist/owners display a painting representing his/her unique approach to a single topic.
Several of the gallery members are available for commission work. These artists will create custom portraits (people, pets), illustrations of homes or other special places or events, or a trompe l'oeil painting or mural in the client's own space.
Gallery One is open year round. It is open 7 days a week during the summer and is universally accessible. For information about current gallery hours, upcoming classes and special events, or to learn more about the gallery and individual artists, call (302) 537-5055.
