The show will open Sept. 26 and run through Oct. 30, 2009. Please join us at the gallery’s opening reception to meet the artist from 5-10 pm on Saturday September 26.

Christine Graefe Drewyer’s creativity was ignited by the environment that was her childhood playground. She grew up in rural Maryland and eventually studied at Maryland College of Art & Design. With a profound love of the land and all its’ inhabitants, it is understandable that her artistic voice expresses this passion. Whether traveling to the Canadian Rockies or the Australian Outback, the inspiration will always be manifested on canvas. This show will range in size from 8”x10” to 36”x48” with a primary focus on landscape and also some serene still life.
Having been a professional in her field for 20 years the artists’ distinctive soft edged style has an atmospheric quality and her art resonates with the colors and forms of nature, in all its’ moods and nuances.
Christine was selected by the editors of American Art Collector as a featured artist in 2007, named “Woman of the Year” by National Association of Executive & Professional Women in 2008, she received the prestigious “Presidents Award” for the Salmagundi Club, NYC in 2009 and is a member of Oil Painters of America, Women Artists of the West and Associate member of American Women Artists.
The Annapolis artist was obsessed with the old masters and went on to become a certified copyist for the National Museum in Washington DC.
Paintings featured in the exhibit will range in size from 8” x 10” to 30” x 40” and are reasonably priced from $850. to $8000. attractively framed.
