Debra Howard, a fine artist from Crisfield Maryland, is this year's recipient of the Patapsco Heritage Greenway award for "Best Depiction of the Patapsco River." Her award-winning painting "Stacked Rocks on the Patapsco" reflects not only the river, but the stone cairns which balance precariously in the riffles of the river. The painting beautifully captures the light and motion of the water.

New Art Exhibit to Open As Part of Ellicott City's Flood Commemoration Anniversary
Patapsco is a body of archival, photographic, and sculptural works anchored by the artist’s relationship with the Patapsco River Valley. The series, which was inspired in the aftermath of the 2016 Ellicott City flood, works to illustrate a narrative through recovered objects, places, and stories that have endured the passage of time. Goodman’s work seeks to expose history that is hiding in plain sight. Each piece strives to contribute to the larger story of the historically rich Patapsco River Valley and the ways it has nurtured and shaped the artist. Click on the title to read more...
