Welcome to North End Gallery of Leonardtown, Maryland.

April 2017 – From My Easel Show

Artist Ray Ewing is the featured painter for North End Gallery in April, with a show called, “From My Easel.” Ewing, a member of North End Gallery, is well known in Southern Maryland for his splendid plein air landscape paintings.  Painting in plein air means that the artist paints outdoors, in nature, showing the effect of light on the landscape. Started by the Impressionists in France, the movement of plein air painting has become popular in the United States, with plein air events and competitions taking place all over the country. During the past seven years, Ewing has been juried into numerous plein air competitions in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia. In these competitions he has painted alongside nationally known artists and won a number of prizes. Dedicated to highlighting the beauty of the Mid-Atlantic region, Ewing states, “These paintings are my attempt to capture a moment in time.” Come to the North End Gallery to enjoy Ewing’s fresh and lively landscape paintings. “From My Easel” runs from April 4-April 30 with the reception on April 7 from 5-8 PM.
