Original Banner Art Show at St. Michaels Library

If you drive down Talbot Street in St. Michaels, you can’t help but notice the “Celebrate St. Michaels” banners that grace the utility poles every year from April to November. The artwork for these banners is created by members of the St. Michaels Art League (SMAL), and additionally, SMAL sponsors banners created by four AP Art Students from St. Michaels Middle High School.
SMAL is pleased to announce an exhibition of the original artwork that was used to create the 2024 banners at the St. Michaels branch of the Talbot County Free Library in April.
The judge this year is Kevin Snelling, fellow artist and owner of “Creative XPressions,” a shop at 204 S. Talbot St. in St. Michaels that specializes in custom framing and original art. Separate awards are given in the categories of Artistic Merit and Graphic Design. In addition, an award is given in the category of “Best Representation of St. Michaels.” The banner artwork will be displayed Wednesday, April 3rd through Tuesday, April 30th at the gallery in the rear of the library, during regular library hours.
Original 18 x 18 framed banner artwork is for sale. For more information and to view all the banner artwork online visit smartleague.org.
This program is funded in part by a grant from the Talbot County Arts Council with revenue provided by the Maryland State Arts Council.
