McBride Gallery will present “Abigail McBride: Poetry in Painting” during this year’s 31st annual Annapolis Art Walk event. Meet the artist on August 19 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. A painting demonstration will be held that evening from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
Abigail McBride paints with the mind of a scholar and the heart of a poet. “The longer I paint, the more amazed I am at how beautiful the world is,” she said.
From the sun splashed outdoors to rich interiors, her interests are broad in scope. She is part of a new breed of painters working from direct observation be it plein air or in the studio.
McBride is an Anne Arundel Community College teacher who hosts online classes and participates in traveling workshops. She is a founder of the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association.
Her work has been highlighted in museums throughout the United States, including the Mitchell Gallery in Annapolis and the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. She has also been featured in Southwest Art Magazine, American Artist Magazine, on Maryland Public Television and in Radio Capital Conversations. McBride has participated in juried shows from national organizations Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, and the Portrait Society of America.
McBride’s work will be on exhibit until September 5 at McBride Gallery, located at 215 Main Street in Annapolis. The gallery is open seven days a week. Hours are 10:00am-5:30pm Monday through Saturday (9:00pm on Thursday) and noon-5:30pm on Sunday. For more information, visit www.mcbridegallery.com.
