  Artists’ Reception, Second Saturday, July 8th,

5:00 to 7:30 p.m. with music and light refreshments.

Steve Dembo is a native of Baltimore, MD and has been a photographer for as long as he can remember.  He received his B.A. from Towson University and an M.F.A. and College Teaching of Art Certificate from the Maryland Institute College of Art.  He is an adjunct professor of photography at the Community College of Baltimore County and has been teaching college level courses for more than six years.  In addition, he is a competition judge, lecturer, workshop facilitator, tutor and mentor.  His photographic work has been critically acclaimed and has garnered numerous competitive awards and accolades, having appeared in national publication, juried exhibitions, and recognized by National Geographic.  Most recently, his work was selected for Black & White magazine’s 2016 Annual Single Image Contest.   His publications include The Two Faces of a Fair and (UN)LIMITED Access.  He was the owner of The Easton Gallery of Photographic Arts, which he closed at the end of 2014 to better pursue his photography and teaching endeavors.


Karen Hubacher has lived in the Washington DC area most of her life and has been exhibiting her work for over 25 years.  Despite a childhood passion for drawing and painting she has a B.S. from American University in Computer Systems.  For 15 years she was a systems analyst in the Dept. of Defense consulting industry.  In 1986 she began to paint again, hauling a suitcase full of art supplies with her on business trips, painting at night in hotel rooms.  A temporary move to Korea in 1989, where she attended Hong-ik Art University in Seoul and was able to devote her days exclusively to her art, was the catalyst for leaving her IT career and establishing a full-time studio practice when she returned to the DC area.

Hubacher’s paintings and collagraph prints have been shown in a number of invitational and solo shows in the Washington, DC area and throughout the United States.  

Hubackers lives in Alexandria, VA and Rock Hall, MD, where she maintains a studio within walking distance of the Chesapeake Bay.

She is represented by the Carla Massoni Gallery in Chestertown, MD and the Adam Peck Gallery in Provincetown, MA.

Discover a New Way of Seeing Color! 

4-Day Landscape Painting Workshop

with Camille Przewodek  Painting by Camille Przewodek


Monday – Thursday

July 24th – July 27th

This plein air painting workshop will take place outdoors

at various scenic locations in Easton, and Cambridge.

  The group will meet at 8 a.m. on the first day of class at the

Dorchester Center for the Arts

321 High Street

Cambridge, MD 21613 


“Good color, or color that expresses the light key of nature,

can make even the most mundane subject matter strikingly beautiful.

  I see a remarkable change in my students’ work after only one day of painting. 

They begin to see color in the shadows. 

Many students say they have discovered a

world of color that has changed them forever——their vision has been altered,” says Camille Przewodek.


  Camille will be doing demos throughout the workshop. 

You will do a color study before lunch, followed by one

or two color studies in the afternoon. 

You are encouraged to bring either original artwork or photos

and to talk with Camille about your vision as an artist.
