On Wednesday, June 1st, the Working Artists Forum (WAF) will open their Tenth Annual Memorial Show at Heron Point in Chestertown, Maryland. Member artists will exhibit their newest original paintings in a variety of media from oil to mixed media. Matt Klos will judge this show. He is an Associate Professor of Humanities and Visual Arts at Anne Arundel Community College and a painter of interiors and plein-air landscapes. His work is shown both nationally and internationally, and continues to garner many prestigious awards. Currently, his work is represented at the McBride Gallery in Annapolis, MD.

WAF is a non-profit organization, composed of 90+ members, who meet monthly at the Academy Art Museum in Easton and show their work in a variety of venues throughout the year, both separately and together. This evolving group of artists maintains its growth with new members that are juried in each September, and through monthly lectures in the arts, demonstrations and critiques. Heron Point has graciously hosted WAF shows since June, 2007. Since the first WAF Memorial Show in 2012, three Judges Awards of Excellence have been given, drawn from a memorial fund set up in recognition of past members. This year, an additional award will be presented to the Best in Show.

On Saturday, June 4th , WAF will host a reception at 2:00 pm at Heron Point. This event is free and open to the public. The show will hang daily throughout the month of June. All work in this show is for sale. Please sign in at the desk prior to viewing. Heron Point is located at 501 East Campus Avenue in Chestertown.
