Lexington Park Gallery

Lexington Park Library Art Gallery

August 16- September 30, 2016: Sarah Baldacchino

“When I was very young I would watch Bob Ross all the time dreaming about having my own art TV show one day. As the years went by I forgot about those dreams. But one Christmas, when I was 11, I got an art pad and paints. I started painting abstract butterflies and trees, and then I realized how much I loved painting and creating. The endless encouragement from my rambunctious big brothers, gave me hope that I could be a great artist one day! I’m now 14 and I paint, sculpt and draw all the time. I hope you enjoy my work!”

Are you an artist and wish you had a place to share your artwork with others? Since the Lexington Park Library Art Gallery was created by artist Candy Cummings in 2005, many amateur, student, and professional artists have displayed their artwork. Contact the St. Mary’s County Arts Council at info@smcart.org or 240-309-0686 if interested in displaying your work. Exhibits change every 4-6 weeks and a reception is held to recognize each artist. The Art Gallery has been funded by a generous donation from local businessman Tom Daugherty and the Friends of the St. Mary’s County Library.
