OC Art League April 2024 Exhibits


It’s a new month and you know what that means, new exhibits at the Ocean City Art league! You won’t want to miss out on these pieces.

To celebrate Earth Month, there are three new exhibits. The Thaler Gallery is currently showcasing “Earth Studies,” featuring the works of Maggie Delaney Grabow, Marley Massey, and Nancy Richards West. Maggie’s art celebrates the intricacies of nature through embroidery, pyrography, and painting, focusing on native insects and their environments. Marley explores elemental activities and human-earth relationships through papermaking and natural pigments, while Nancy’s oil paintings capture the power and beauty of the ocean, emphasizing its vital role in sustaining life on Earth. Together, these artists share the importance of protecting our planet, inviting viewers to reflect on the beauty and fragility of nature during Earth Month!

Meanwhile, the Sisson Galleria presents a Juried Corporate Partner Show, honoring the Art League’s corporate supporters with a diverse array of 2D and 3D artwork by local artists. In Studio E, Carol Gentes and Angela Pierce exhibit “Nature as We See It,” featuring landscapes, birds, and animals. Carol’s detailed paintings reflect her background in biology, while Angela’s work, inspired by local landscapes, demonstrates a blend of traditional and contemporary techniques. The Spotlight Gallery showcases Collin Byrd, Elvin Hernandez, and Brad Hudson’s artwork in conjunction with the annual Manga & Anime Youth Art Show, while the Staircase Gallery features Itzel V. Aguilar’s emotionally charged paintings, reflecting her personal journey of healing and self-discovery through vibrant colors and symbolic imagery.

Visit the art league this Friday, April 5th from 5-7 PM for their free opening reception. See you guys next month!
