Sunday May 27 through Saturday July 21 – “Waterworks” The Robert Boxley Pond Boat Collection accompanied by a multi-media selection of paintings, watercolors, sculpture featuring water elements. Join us in our upper and lower gallery as we celebrate Waterworks.

“Bob and Jennie Boxley have been eclectic collectors for their married life.  The genesis of their pond boat collection began with Jennie’s scouring of thrift shops affiliated with retirement homes in Arlington, Virginia, especially the Navy’s Vinson Hall, a frequent source of pond boats.  As their collection grew over the next twenty years or so, they befriended numerous antique dealers along the Atlantic Coast specializing in New England and Eastern Shore nautical items. “Although Bob sailed in college, they have never sailed as a couple.  Instead, their collecting focus has been on the aesthetics of boat design.  Subtle variations in hull design and rigging are at the center of their interest in boat collecting.”In addition to yachts and pond boats, the Boxley’s have a large collection of toy runabouts, cargo ships, passenger liners, tugboats and nautical memorabilia”. Artwork exhibited by:  Marvel Adams, Don Black, Barbara Byrd, Kathy Chumley, Ed Cooper, Gerard Erley, Veda Headley, Lou Messa, Neil Rizos, Pam Singer, Cheryl Voytek, Walta Warren and Wilson Webb.
