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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
