The Academy Art Museum’s Instructors’ Exhibition presents recent works by its exceptional team of instructors. As practicing local artists working in multiple mediums, the instructors of our adult and children’s classes engage with what is in and around our community and beyond in intriguing ways. Their experience guiding budding and experienced student artists informs their work, as their technical proficiency and artistic curiosity intertwine, delivering a colorful and dynamic exhibition.
“We haven’t done an Instructors’ Exhibition in about six years. We have an incredibly talented cadre of teachers – some with a national presence. Many have been prolific since the pandemic so there is new material to be viewed in the show,” comments Katie Cassidy, artist, instructor, and Education Consultant at the Museum.
Lelic adds, “Because our instructors are working artists, creating new art is a part of their practice as teachers. They incorporate many things in their work so their students will get to enjoy seeing another side of them as makers of art.”
Exhibiting artists in the Instructor’s Exhibition include Paul Aspell, Steve Bleinberger, Katie Cassidy, Rosemary Cooley, Bernie Dellario, Constance Del Nero, Georgia June Goldberg, Matthew Hillier, Susan Horsey, Maire McArdle, Diane DuBois Mullaly, Julia Rogers, Brad Ross, Maggii Sarfaty, Theresa Schram, Sahm Doherty Sefton, Sheryl Southwick, Cid Collins Walker, Steve Walker, and Meg Walsh.
The Academy Art Museum exhibitions are sponsored by the Talbot County Arts Council, the Maryland State Arts Council, and the Star Democrat. Open daily, Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, 12 noon to 4 p.m.
