River Arts is a wonderful addition to the Chestertown Downtown area. It showcases a variety of local artists' works including jewelry, photographs, ceramics, weavings, and paintings, to name a few. It is run by local citizens with frequently hold events and classes. It is a "must" stop if you're visiting or even as a local noting how items change frequently.

The new gallery is stunning and a beautiful showcase for the many talented artists that participate in shows. First Friday is a must. Also, don't miss the Holiday Galleria that is coming up.

The merger of Chestertown's two arts organizations has produced a vibrant experience for arts appreciators, including an engaging new gallery and gift shop and many new exhibits, classes and lectures. (PS the photo is of an old gallery space, not the new gallery.) Definitely stop by the RiverArts gallery and gift shop when you are in Chestertown.

RiverArts is in a new location in Chestertown, and has a lovely gallery. The gift shop had a nice variety, some particularly beautiful wood pieces. Lots of items under $100. I plan on doing a good bit of my holiday shopping here (and giving my husband a wishlist for me...). We enjoyed the free Studio Tour.

After the class I spent at least half an hour looking at the small collection of wonderful local art. Great place to shop for work featuring the... More

Come on a Saturday morning and take part in one of the best Farmers Markets on the Eastern Shore. The street along Fountain park is lined with local farmers, bakers and craftsman defining the word "fresh". Fresh flowers, vegetables, bread and baked goods mixed together with hand-made candles, soaps and crafts.
