OCMD Voted as One of the Best Places to Travel in June 2024

“If the name Ocean City conjures up visions of waves breaking on the shore, a classic wooden boardwalk, restaurants, and summer fun, you have a pretty good idea of what you’ll find on this Maryland barrier island with ten miles of Atlantic coastline. For more than a hundred years, Ocean City has offered visitors sunny beaches, an amusement park, games, arcades, shops, boating, fishing, and water sports. There’s nightlife, a performing arts center with live shows, shopping, and nearby Assateague Island with beaches and wildlife that includes deer and wild horses.”

OC Art League March 2024 Exhibits

With six new features, you’ll want to set aside some time to explore the Ocean City Art League this Month! In honor of Women’s History Month, the Thaler Gallery proudly presents “Women in the Arts: Nature, Nurture, Change,” showcasing the unique perspectives of Jeri Alexander, Sue Bromm, and Lisa Tossey. Each artist received money from the Women’s Fund of the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore to create thought-provoking works.

Jeri Alexander’s installation, “Thirty,” delves into the complexities of turning 30, using a mix of sculpture and video to symbolize the flow of time. Sue Bromm’s series, “Embracing Uncertainty,” employs eco-printing techniques, a sustainable and eco-conscious art form that not only yields stunning visuals but also fosters a profound appreciation for the beauty and diversity of the natural world. It serves as a powerful testament to the creative possibilities that emerge when art and nature intertwine! Lisa Tossey’s work focuses on the impact of climate change on local habitats, using a birds-eye view along with ceramics to depict local endangered landscapes and species such as the Bald Eagle in a Dorchester County Marsh.

In addition to this inspiring exhibit, the gallery features other notable artists such as Nina Mickelsen, who’s bright blue art will catch your eye and Donna Finley, who captures beautiful pastel landscapes of the Eastern Shore. Lisa Scarbath and Pat Land are featured in this month’s Artisan Showcase with some truly unique pieces ranging from steampunk crab plaques to embellished starfishes and sea turtles.

Also on display is Itzel V. Aguilar’s powerful collection, “Nunca Fue Tu Culpa (It Was Never Your Fault),” which explores themes of healing and self-discovery through vibrant colors and symbolic imagery and “Life in Motion” featured in the Sisson Galleria. This is a collective exhibit of local artists and art league members.

With such a diverse array of captivating exhibitions, we encourage you to check out the Ocean City Art League this month before it inevitably changes in April!
