Launching Ideas ... Recovering History
Artists of all ages, including donations from famous local artists such as Carol Egeli and Mary Lou Troutman, have donated their work to help build a stronger Patuxent River Naval Air Museum by participating in the First Annual Air and Sea Silent Art Auction, set for Thursday, June 6, 5-8 p.m. at the museum.
From flight-testing at Patuxent River Naval Air Station to fishing and sailing in our fabulous waters, Air and Sea activities are important every-day parts of life in St. Mary’s County, so the theme of this auction is to create a visual message of anything related to the roles that air and/or sea play in the life of St. Mary’s County. There will be a range of artwork for auction, including ceramics, sculpture, drawing, and painting.
Entertainment for the evening is being provided by the Famous Chesapeake Chamber Orchestra, the Great Mills High School Steel Drum Band, and the St. Peter Claver Choir. Refreshments will be available for purchase from the Sea Scouts.
All art purchases are tax-deductible. The museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and donations are tax-deductible. The museum is located on Route 235 near Gate 1 of the Patuxent River Naval Air Station.
