CHESTERTOWN—The Kohl Gallery exhibition “Marc Castelli: The Art of the Waterman, The Simison Collection,” originally set to close at the end of Downrigging Weekend, will remain open for the next two weekends, November 5-7 and 12-14.
The exhibition features more than 20 paintings of working watermen and their boats by beloved Chesapeake Bay artist Marc Castelli. Seventeen of the paintings are on loan from the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michael’s, which received them as a bequest of Tilghman Island collector Diane Simison. The exhibition is co-sponsored by the Maritime Museum and the Center for Environment & Society at Washington College.
The Kohl Gallery is located in the Daniel Z. Gibson Center for the Arts on the Washington College campus, 300 Washington Avenue.
