All Things French
To celebrate the arrival of the French ship L'Hermione to our harbours we've raised the French flag over the gallery and are featuring watercolors by Greg Harlin and oils by Ann Munro Wood that focus on the history of France. Join us Sunday June 7, 3:30 to 5 for All Things French.
Fort McHenry, War of 1812

1st class postage stamp by Greg Harlin
It was September 1814 during the Battle of Baltimore when Francis Scott Key was inspired to pen the words that became our national anthem. 200 years later the U.S. Postal Service commissioned renowned watercolor artist Greg Harlin for a special "War of 1812" project. His goal was to bring that battle scene to life — on a postage stamp. SHOP HERE for signed sheets of this "Forever" stamp by Greg Harlin
NPR Tiny Desk Concert Contest
Black Rhinoceros stopped by the Annapolis Collection Gallery on a cold Wednesday evening to record their entry for the NPR Tiny Desk Concert Contest. It's Ahren Buchheister on Guitar and Erin Snedecor on Cello. The Tiny Desk Concert series is a webcast hosted by Bob Boilen at NPR national headquarters in DC. He brings in music groups to play a 3 song set at his "Tiny Desk" in the middle of the office during everyone's lunch hour.
