Discover St. Michaels and Talbot County
The Second Saturday of each month (October 8, November 12, December 10) is a great time to visit the town of St. Michaels. All the art galleries stay open later and will offer refreshments and various demonstrations from 5 to 7 pm.
Calling itself "The Heart & Soul of the Chesapeake Bay," the town of Saint Michaels, Maryland retains the look and feel of a 19th century seaport. Walk on red brick sidewalks past the Victorian homes and boutique shops of the historic district, or head down to the pier in search of famously fresh seafood. The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum preserves the history of Saint Michaels, with restored examples of "bugeyes" and "skipjacks," unique boats developed by the fisherman of Chesapeake Bay.
Talbot County is located in the heart of Maryland's Eastern Shore. Founded around 1661, it's named for Lady Grace Talbot, sister of Lord Baltimore and the first proprietary governor of Maryland. Today, the county is home to the charming towns of Easton, Oxford, Queen Anne, St. Michaels and Trappe. With more than 600 miles of shoreline, Talbot County is a terrific place to live, work and play.
The A.M. Gravely Gallery
showcases the magnificent art talent in Talbot County and endeavors to further the fine art of printmaking.
The Gallery is located in a restored Victorian home built in 1860 and on the Maryland Historic Register. In three exhibit rooms, the Gallery highlights the work of non-profit artist groups, as well as other Maryland artists.
A studio space is available for artists to meet once a week to work on projects and discuss art. Lessons in printmaking will also be given to adults and children on a sliding-fee basis.
