I’ve been a member of the Deep Creek Lake Yacht Club at Turkey Neck for a long time. Twenty-one years ago, a group of members gathered up items and stored them away in a time capsule to open in 2020. After the pandemic delayed the opening by a year, the Club finally cracked it open in August. Much to my surprise, a small piece of my art was inside the capsule. Below is a display they made with some of the items, where you’ll see the small work of art alongside a closer look at the image.
I’ve been thinking about my Garrett County friends lately, as they are having a cold and snowy weather. No matter how you feel about wintry weather, it makes for good subject matter.
This is a small original that I created for a Christmas card several years back. The scenes is from Turkey Neck Road, near my home in the area. The original is not for sale, but you can get fine art prints, cards and other items at Fine Art America.
The Gallery Shop, home of the Garrett County Arts Council, in Oakland, Maryland is now open by appointment. They are also open to the public on certain days of the week. Follow their Facebook page to make an appointment or learn about upcoming walk-in hours.
Heading Up is my latest piece to hang in the shop. I encourage you to visit and support this shop, where you can view art from many talented artists in Garrett County.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Garrett County Artist Studio Tour has been canceled. This event is traditionally an opportunity for people to visit different artists around the county, viewing their work and studios. It’s also a chance to see the artists at work. While it’s certainly a disappointment, as many things have been this year, I will do my best to bring you a “virtual studio tour” during July.
Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County Art Sale
To thank people for visiting during the Tour weekend, I’ve always had some show specials at the event. With that in mind, a selection of Garrett County and Deep Creek Lake themed original art will be offered at a 20% discount during July. Work will include scenes from the lake, sailing, farms, and other areas of Garrett County. A link to this virtual gallery will be posted on this blog starting July 1st.
Greeting Card Packages
Many of you like to purchase a supply of art print cards every year. If you’d like to restock your supply, we can do that. We will prepare cards in packs of six. Cards retail for $5 a card, but we will offer our traditional “studio tour special” of $25 for six cards. They will be packaged by subject matter – more information to follow on this as well.

While it certainly won’t replace seeing everyone in person, we hope that you can “visit” over the coming month.
