Gallery One is pleased to announce the September show, “Water, Water, Everywhere”, open to the public September 1- 29.

Poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge famously wrote, “Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink.” However, this month the artists of Gallery One use Coleridge’s verse to invite you to drink in the beauty of our area’s water filled landscapes. Fresh water ponds, the marshes of the Delaware Bay Watershed, the Atlantic Ocean – all of them provide a source of income and pleasure for our area.

The beach and the ocean are a source of wonder any time of the year, and any time of day. In Lesley McCaskill’s painting, “Low Tide,” the artist delights in the variety of textures and patterns created by the ebb and flow of the waves and the light dancing on the surface of the water. In Michelle Marshall’s acrylic painting, “Ocean After the Storm,” we see that magical atmospheric moment when the clouds’ part and that first ray of sun breaks through, illuminating the water and creating a path of light. “Frosty Sunrise at the Beach”, an acrylic painting by artist Jeanne Mueller, depicts the unusual but serene occurrence of a beach “snowscape,” proving that there is no season when the beach does not delight.

The different boats that traverse our waterways for work and pleasure also appear this month. As Marybeth Paterson, describes in her oil painting, “Smith Island Work Boat”,“Smith Island is a fragile treasure in the Chesapeake Bay. The work boats there have their own unique stories - this year a challenging crab season, and in the past great oyster harvests, and always with bumps and bruises along the way. Laura Hickman’s takes similar inspiration from Tangier Island in her pastel painting “Canal Besides Factory Road, “Tangier Island.” Laura describes how “Tangier Island sits in the middle of the vast Chesapeake and is riddled with canals and wetlands. It is the perfect example of “water, water, everywhere.”

“Rounding the Cape” by artist W. Scott Broadfoot, in oil, depicts a classic sailboat rounding the Delaware Breakwater East End Lighthouse. Based on the weather and the wind, a sailboat can almost always be in the Delaware Bay any time of year. And in artist Dale Sheldon’s atmospheric painting, “Marina Fog”, boats are waiting for the day to begin as the sun barely shines through the fog and reflects on the water. Joyce Condry’s lovely painting, “At Sea", is a peaceful reverie of sea, sky and sails.

“The Lily Pond” by Ray Ewing in oil, and Cheryl Wisbrock’s watercolor painting, “Climbing the Falls,” both done in vibrant golds and rich viridian greens and subtle blues, immerse us in water teeming with life. Ray’s lily pads offer a calming, peaceful presence, while Cheryl’s water is charged with the electricity of strong current and adventure.

We hope you will join us this month and drink in our water inspired art! Gallery One is open daily 10 a.m. 5 p.m.
