Annapolis, Maryland – Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park will host Local Annapolis photographer, Jay Fleming, in a rotating exhibit in the Museum’s Bay Room and gallery.
Fleming’s photographs creates a visual narrative of the lives of those individuals whose livelihood is directly dependent upon the Chesapeake Bay. His work is comprised of photographs of seasoned watermen, scenic seascapes, weathered workboats and bay bounty — a true and complete depiction of Chesapeake Bay life. Equal parts informative and aesthetically pleasing, Fleming’s authentic photographs are relevant to the history buff, the biologist, the photography fan, and the Chesapeake Bay lover alike. The exhibit includes pieces from Jay’s first book, “Working the Water,” and his forthcoming book “Island Life,” highlighting adventures on the Chesapeake Bay.
The opening reception for the exhibit will be held on March 22nd from 5:30 to 7:00 in the evening. Jay will be signing books and telling stories about his work on the Chesapeake Bay. Local beer and oysters will be provided complimentary to guests of the reception. All of the artwork is for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Annapolis Maritime Museum and Park. Free admission to the exhibit opening and to the exhibit during museum hours.
