Chesapeake Arts Center Exhibit Gallery

"I recently had the pleasure of participating in the Her Stories: A Women's Art Show at the Chesapeake Arts Center's Hal Gomer Gallery. It was a pleasant experience from start to finish. The staff was very professional, friendly and responsive. From this encounter alone I was able to network with other talented artists. I am looking forward to more opportunities to work The Chesapeake Arts Center in the future." - Heather A Covington

"My favorite part was getting to meet the person that created the poem I based my art from and how amazing it was to bring art and poetry, young and old together!" Jadyn Hardy

Threadz, an exhibition of painting, fabric art, and mixed media fine art by artist Janie McGee. Artist Janie McGee collection of fine art displays vintage fashion spanning 100 years captured through mixed media. Her love for design, fashion, and history is combined to express the clothing style from yesterday in paint, fabric, and mixed media. The series is inspired to capture beauty history of style with emotions. McGee is embarking on a new journey that started at the age of 15. She would purchase the New York Times Sunday paper from a local store. Her desire to reproduce the fashion in the style section over a period provokes her interest and love for clothes. The exhibition captures that love in brushstroke.
