Revelations of African American Life in Maryland and the World
This first comprehensive exhibition of paintings and lithographs by Ruth Starr Rose (1887-1965) offers a rare glimpse into the lives and spiritual world of rural African American life at the turn of the century on Marylands Eastern Shore. An Art Students League artist, Rose portrays crab pickers, sailmakers, and soldiers, as well as gospel song illustrations, with a dignity and compassion that expresses her deep love for the residents of the Talbot County towns of Copperville and Unionville.

Open noon to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday, and Friday 6:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Closed Monday
