Art by the Bay

It was a fabulous weekend for the historic Duxbury Art Association as we welcomed many artists and guests to the Duxbury Bay Maritime School for our 100th annual summer show on beautiful Duxbury Bay.

The festivities kicked off Friday morning when the gallery opened, and continued into the evening with a catered cocktail reception, live music, and a silent auction of the DAA’s 100th anniversary 10x10 panel exhibit.  This year’s event featured work by many talented DAA member-artists.  Categories included oil, watercolor and acrylic painting, pastels, mixed media, photography, sculpture and textiles.

In addition to the adult work, an entire section of the gallery was dedicated to an impressive display of children’s art.  Gallery visitors voted for their favorite children’s piece, resulting in a tie with a Best of Show award presented to winners Eve Flederman (age 17) and Kenzie Murphy (age 10) of Duxbury.

The weather was perfect Saturday as children and their parents filled the lawn at DBMS for a lively Family Fun Fest, and enjoyed the many 100th birthday activities organized by the DAA. It was a fantastic weekend for visitors and artists alike, as much of the exhibited art sold before the show closed on Saturday afternoon.

The Duxbury Art Association thanks every artist who submitted their work, and congratulates all of the category winners and overall Best of Show winner, Marie Walsh of Onset, for her work titled “Midnight Surfers”.  We thank Chuck Leonard and the Duxbury Bay Maritime School, judges Heidi Mayo, Eric Uhrynowski and Denise Barker, and the many people who helped make this weekend a success — Art by the Bay event organizer Liz Queeny, Family Fun Fest organizer Tammy Kirk, and our generous ABTB sponsors, vendors, volunteers, friends, and guests.  Thank you all for supporting the historic Duxbury Art Association's 100th summer show.
