The Museum is pleased to present its annual Mid-Shore Student Art Exhibitions. These exhibitions highlight the artistic talents of K-12 students from Talbot, Caroline, Dorchester, Queen Anne and Kent counties. As in past years, visitors can expect a variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and printmaking. The Mid-Shore Student Art Exhibitions have been a Museum tradition for over 25 years and are the largest and most prestigious student art exhibitions on the Eastern Shore.

ALL grades will exhibit their art at the same time. However, due to the popularity of the exhibitions, there will be THREE opening receptions.

Grades K–3 Reception
Opening Reception: Monday, February 4
4:30–6 p.m.
Door prizes will be given out at 5 p.m. You must be present to win.


Grades 4–8 Reception
Opening Reception: Tuesday, February 5
4:30–6 p.m.
Door prizes will be given out at 5 p.m. You must be present to win.


Grades 9-12 Reception

5:30–7 p.m.
Awards presented at 6 p.m. Students MUST be present to win a prize. Winners who are not present will still receive a certificate, but no prize; the prize will go to an alternate who is present.
