Exhibition Opening: Robert de Gast’s Chesapeake

May 12 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Friday, May 12

Robert De Gast’s photographs of the late 1960’s and 70’s documented the Chesapeake’s oystering industry, shorelines, and lighthouses at a watershed moment, both for the Bay and for photography. Deftly incorporating modern abstract elements into images that conveyed grit, humor, and atmosphere, De Gast masterfully represented the last days of the Chesapeake’s maritime golden age. This exhibition features masterpieces selected from more than 10,000 images in CBMM’s De Gast collections.

Robert de Gast’s Chesapeake is made possible through the generous support of Mr. &
Mrs. Norman H. Plummer, Anne & Frank Mickey, Maryland State Arts Council, Ashton Design, and Elizabeth C. Moose.
