Currently on exhibit through May 15, 2022: “Another View: Untold Stories.” Patrick Henry has gained a reputation as one of the Shore’s most influential artists. For decades, his snapshots of life on Delmarva; seascapes, landscapes, local attractions from the boardwalk and small-town living, have been highly sought after by both local fans and collectors from all over the world. The paintings in this new body of work are translated through the style and use of color that has come to define Henry’s work over the years, but rather than depicting coastal and pastoral landscapes, showcase the distinction of its people. Paintings like ‘Hotel Staff in Ocean City’, ‘Wait Staff at Burley Manor’ in Berlin, and ‘James Franklin’ – a Black veteran returning home from World War 1 – all vividly highlight local people in familiar settings.
