Working Artists Forum Expands Exhibiting

Many Talbot County residents, as well as visitors to Talbot County, are familiar with Working Artists Forum (WAF) for its summer annual art show, Local Color, held during and in partnership with the Avalon Foundation’s Plein Air Easton.
Membership to this juried organization extends beyond the limits of its home base in Easton, and includes artists working in various painting mediums. As a thriving and accomplished group of professionals, WAF has often expanded their art exhibit venues beyond the Eastern Shore area. This year is no exception, and WAF is pleased to announce its upcoming 2022 scheduled art shows.
WAF has been invited to exhibit in May at the Columbia Art Center, located in the Long Reach Village Center, 6100 Foreland Garth, Columbia, MD, from May 6 through May 29 with a show entitled Space…Shapes…Scapes; in addition the show Spark…Spirit…Soul is to be held May 11 through June 26 at the Willow & Garden Galleries located at Quiet Waters Park, 6100 Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis. These two shows will be followed by the very popular Local Color show in Easton from July 20 through July 24. The participating artists for Local Color will soon be announced, following the jurying process. This year’s juror is Mary Veiga, second place winner of Plein Air Easton 2021. The juried artists will be from the Delmarva area (MD, VA, DE).
Moving ahead in 2022, as summer comes to a close and fall approaches, the art shows include the Center for the Arts in Ocean City, MD in September; followed by an exhibit during Easton’s WaterFowl Festival in November; and the Talbot County Free Library show in Easton in December.
Betty Huang, President of Working Artists Forum, an accomplished artist as well as owner of Studio B art gallery located at 7B Goldsborough St. in Easton, encourages Artists who are interested in membership with WAF to visit the WAF website for information on the procedures to apply before September.
