For the past decade, I have been a plein air painter focusing on the natural beauty in and around Snow Hill, MD. This acrylic painting on wood panel called "Clock Calm" was done in early spring at the Ocean City Harbor and measures 9"x9". The boat is named Dream Catcher.
This painting is regularly priced $350, but your winning bid may be far less. Celebrate 52 years of the Ward Foundation by bidding on any of 52 unique works of art, decoys, gift-able experiences, and more—now through November 8 at 5:00 p.m. All proceeds raised during the gala and auction will benefit the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, Salisbury University.
The bidding has already begun!
Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art
The Ward Museum’s vision is to be a leader at the crossroads of the arts, heritage conservation, environmental education, and community service. They create inspirational, innovative, and accessible exhibits, educational programs, and public events that build on the legacy of pioneering decoy makers Lem and Steve Ward.
The Museum has a variety of educational programs for both children and adults. It sponsors a members’ wood-carving club at the Museum; and gives a group bird walk every Tuesday morning with the Museum’s education staff gathering data on the different species of migrating birds the data from which is sent to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, where it can be accessed by researchers.
Your support will help the Ward Museum reach 20,000+ students annually through the Ward Museum’s educational programming, and over 12,000 visitors who enjoy low- and no-cost programming and exhibits each year at this unique, accredited institution.
