Choose from three amazing photographers. Retired teacher and a Master Naturalist, photographer Jane Rubrecht welcomes the opportunity to reach people and raise their awareness of surrounding environmental issues. This is her third year participating! Each photo seeks to elicit a visceral reaction with an audience. This “Wow” factor opens the door to conversations raising the awareness of environmental and worldwide issues. Her work is a curated collection of photographic fine art presented on a variety of mediums. Dick Cunningham has interesting landscape scenes from many favorite locations. Tom & Kathi Hince have an eye for creatures, great and small. If you enjoy roseate spoonbills, white pelicans, sunset or beach scenes, you are sure to find the perfect photograph.

Nationally acclaimed, award-winning artists will display, sell, engage and educate patrons from 10am to 5pm daily. Several painters with different styes will showcase their new creations. Petty is back with her handmade elephant grass baskets (perfect for the beach), and Pam Stockfish will have her unique functional, kitchen and household utensils. Be sure to shop early for best selection. Support local artists and crafters during this difficult time by buying direct from them. Ask them the process, their inspiration and what drives them!

27-Time Award Winning Crab Cakes and Chesapeake Bay Seafood chef Charles Maslin from Laughing Crab will be dishing up mouth watering crab cakes and seafood platters all weekend long for your ride home from the beach. These crab cakes are the real deal! Take out options always available.
