Went to view the art show on Friday January 8, 2016 because I heard about it from the locals. I thought it would be interesting and went there hoping to have a good time. I looked around and worked my way to the buffet table. A lot of older people hovering around talking and leaning on the table. Some had... More

Local crafters. Multi-medium, some pieces were quite strange. Small space, much occupied by the gift shop. On inside corridor of a mall.

We were spending the night in Chestertown and after a quick walk through the Farmer's Market on a rainy Saturday morning we walked to the River Arts location. It is the holiday season and I am always on the lookout for interesting items as gifts. We walked through the gift shop and saw many interesting creations from local artists. We... More

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.
