LEONARDTOWN, Md. – To allow for greater visibility of the 2021 Annual North End Gallery (NEG) Artist Invitational, NEG will host a virtual special highlighting this year’s Invitational featuring an exceptional variety of guest artists’ work. The live-streamed event, produced by the Commissioners of Leonardtown & Winson Media, will include a virtual tour of the Gallery and its annual Invitational show. 

Intimate spotlights of the featured artists reveal insights and approaches to a wealth of exciting new techniques, mediums and subjects. Their diverse creations include fiber, batik, wood carving, metal and ceramic sculpture, gold and silver jewelry, mixed media, pastels, photography, acrylic and oil paintings on canvas, wood, and gourds. The collection of over eighty unique pieces  is astounding from a life-sized sea turtle in welded steel to finely crafted silver necklaces and gold rings. Paintings range from light drenched pastels to color saturated landscape oil and acrylic paintings and rich abstracts. A delicately hand stitched silk wall hanging and colorful fish print batiks to finely crafted wood bowls, sculpture, and a Japanese inspired inlaid wood box reflect the individuality of each artist. Southern Maryland artistry is richly represented in this collection.

Tune in for this special presentation on Saturday, March 6, 2021 at 1 PM at www.VisitLeonardtownMD.com/NorthEndGallery or at the Town of Leonardtown Facebook Page. This year’s Artist Invitational will run from February 4th – March 28th.
