The Water’s Edge Gallery welcomes Beverly R. Lynch, an Eastern Shore Painter. Lynch’s retrospective opens on June 1, 2010 with an artist’s reception on Friday, June 11th from 6-9pm. Lynch’s works focus on subjects including animals, landscapes and boats.
Born on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Lynch has drawn and painted since early childhood. In 1968, she studied at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC. Returning to her hometown, she worked as an architectural draftsman, wood carver, sign painter and fine artist during the 1970s and 1980s.
Since 1980, she helped her husband, a commercial fisherman, in his business, reared a daughter and has written and painted. She has completed many portraits and several limited edition prints, works as website cartoon artist and wrote Wet and Hungry, an Atlantic Fisherman’s Life, using journals she kept of her husband’s fishing stories. Her work has been shown in New York’s Salmagundi Club, America’s oldest art club, and in various Maryland exhibitions.
The Water’s Edge Gallery is located in historic downtown Berlin at 2 South Main Street across from the Atlantic Hotel and is open to the public seven days a week. The June artist’s reception takes place during Berlin’s 2nd Friday Art Stroll and the public is invited to attend. For more information, contact the gallery at 410-629-1784.
