    What is a curve? The shape of a bowl, a bend in the road, a beautiful necklace, the turn of a figure, a slumped form in glass. You will see all this and more at our January show. Come and enjoy some refreshments at our opening reception and talk with the artists about their inspiration.

  2. “At The Water’s Edge” Lecture Series presents “The Happiest of All Showboat Stories: The James Adams Floating Theatre”

    January 18, 2018, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Calvert Marine Museum

    “The Happiest of All Showboat Stories: The James Adams Floating Theatre” presented by Patricia Samford Step back in time with “At The Water’s Edge,” a new lecture series highlighting how people enjoyed leisure time on the Chesapeake Bay from 1890 through the 1970s. In the late 19th century, Calvert County saw a major transformation in the use of local waters and shoreline – from a place of work to a place of play. These years witnessed a decline in the number of people making a living on the water along with rapid growth in recreational boating. Fishing, boating and family amusements became popular with a burgeoning middle class. Steamboats, trains from the Chesapeake Beach Railway and improved roads for automobiles brought destination recreation on the bay and along Calvert’s waterways within reach for an ever-increasing number of visitors.
