This museum is small but always has interesting and usually very good quality collection of art. One of the few actual art museums on the Eastern shore. Good kids summer camps.

Sponsors a local art and craft show in the Fall where I was showing my work. They offer a wide range of classes and workshops. The art exhibits change about every 6 weeks.

It's a small and unpretentious museum that hosts both local and known; even unknown artists. A nominal fee of $3 per person was collected to walk around the small, but pleasant museum.

There are 4 shows right now. The contemporary furniture by german-born Vicco von Voss is artful and sensuous. The american landscape painters from Bierstadt to Wyeth is very interesting- from a private collection so there are unknown paintings by this group of fine artists. The Rosa Parks exhibit includes the original illustrations used for the Caldecott Medal winning children's book,... More

The Academy is small, but the four exhibits, ranging from contemporary wood sculpture/furniture, to illustrations from the children's book Rosa Parks, to the collection of landscapes, was first rate.

There were two special exhibits and the price is right at only 3 dollars a person. It also had local art for sale upstairs, but we didn't have time.

Our innkeepers suggested we go. We did the walking tour of Easton and stopped here along the way. For $3 per person we were delighted by the installation by Ahn. Amazing visual stimulation. Love it!
