Featured Artist

Willie Crockett


Willie Crockett’s paintings are recognized as being among the most honest portrayals of Chesapeake Bay drama and beauty. Best known for his wildlife art, Willie transmits to his painting an ever fresh view of the Eastern Shore landscape, the wildfowl and the marsh. An occasional easy transition into colorful abstracts and flowers speaks for the versatility of the painter and the sensitivity of the man. While best known for his glowing watercolors, Crockett works in oils and acrylics as well.
