‘Americana’ exhibit opens Friday at Bay School

“Americana,” an exhibit embodying the spirit of American creativity and uniqueness, opens at 10 a.m. Friday at the Bay School Community Arts Center on Main Street, Mathews.

Traditionally, the term Americana is defined by subject matter that is characteristic of American culture, folklore, people, places, history, and iconic themes, said a press release, adding, “At such a challenging time, local and regional artists created some truly inspirational and meaningful artwork.”

Fifteen artists are represented in “Americana,” which includes paintings, multimedia, jewelry, fiber art, outside art, photography, three-dimensional art, and pottery. Each piece of art in the show is influenced by the artist’s interpretation of culture and heritage, said the release. Some pieces can be described as nostalgic and will spark many visitors’ memories of simpler times.

In addition to visiting the show in person, those interested may view and shop the entire show online at
