I am extremely happy to announce the opening of my retrospective exhibition at the Deltaville Maritime Museum in Deltaville, Virginia. On June 12 the Private Opening Gala for Sponsors, Patrons and Contributing Art Owners took place and the Premier Opening Reception on June 13 honoring Museum Supporters was held. On Saturday June 14 the exhibit opened to the public. My wife Kathy and I were there as well as our Sponsoring Patrons Mary and Ted Linhart to greet guests at the events. The openings were magnificently staged in the newly built Chesapeake Hall of the Museum. The 58- piece collection of art will hang through October 12, 2014. Photos follow.
We had about 270 people attending the private receptions with a total of approximately 1500 since the doors opened. Total membership at the Museum has doubled since the exhibition began. Raffle tickets for my oil “Schooner Maggie off Stingray Point” [value $6,000] are still available until the exhibit closes on October 12. Contact the museum to purchase – $25 each, five for $100. All proceeds benefit the Museum. www.deltavillemuseum.com/ 804-776-7200. JMB
