A special reception will honor the 11th anniversary of Gallery One and welcome artist Jan Moffatt.

Jan Moffatt is a landscape painter yet an intuitive painter, painting from the inside out.  Working in acrylic, she describes her paintings as “daydreams, imaginings, meditations of places remembered or dreamt”. Award winning Moffatt is a graduate of Cedar Crest College, Allentown, Pa. and has been an active member of the Art League of Alexandria in the Torpedo Factory and the Loft Gallery, Occoquan, Va. Jan moved to Delaware in 2016 and loves painting our incredible local landscape.

The new Gallery One poster features May’s theme “Fins, Wings and Crawly Things”, an assortment of life at the Delaware coastline. Birds are prominent in the big sky of our Delaware landscape.  Artist Pat Riordan’s acrylic “Home Sweet Home” portrays the giant nest of ospreys often seen in the back bays. Rina Thaler’s acrylic “Seagull” shows the graceful glide of a gull in the sky. Jeanne Mueller, in her oil “Early Morning Feeding”, “loves to watch the fast movement of the sandpipers as they skitter around for their food.  Up and down they go,escaping the waves”.

The ocean is abundant with life! “Jumping for Joy” acrylic by Dale Sheldon captures the moment of the huge frothy splash of the dancing and playful dolphins seen from the shore.Every year Ocean City’s White Marlin Tournament captures localheadlines.  Joyce Condry’s “Catch Me If You Can” shows the hard fight of a leaping marlin.Acrylic “Happy Fish” byDianne Shearon uses the iconic fish to describe how she feels as summer approaches. Jan Moffatt’s acrylic “Seahorse” explores the mysterious and elusive undersea animal that reminds her of an early love of horses. Tara Funk Grim uses mixed media to playfully describe the happy “Jacques Oct”.

Many animals are found crawling on shore. “Delmarva Terrapin” acrylic by Lesley McCaskill is often seen crossing the roads and swimming in our back bays around docks and pilings. Laura Hickman calls her pastel ghost crab “Radar”. . “Ghost crabs are fascinating.They scurry back and forth and right to left foraging for food and then disappear quickly from sight." “Of all of summer's long-awaited prizes, blue crabs are one of the finest.  We pull them from the bay, creeks and canals.” Chery Wisbrock’s watercolor “Big Blue” shows a giant crab ready for the table.
