George and Mary Drake

George Drake has always been fascinated by the art of photography. When he first started out, his photographs mainly centered around his children but more recently he has developed a talent for photographing birds and other wildlife. Drake earned his Master of Arts in Publication Design at the University of Baltimore. He originally produced black and white photographs, which he developed in his own dark room for use in magazines and books. Today he uses a more modern DSLR camera and zoom lens to beautifully capture shots of the many varieties of birds that he views outside of his home in Centreville. Drake won Honorable Mention for the Bird Category in the 2012 Photography Contest at the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and has won several first place awards in monthly Photography Club contests. He has exhibited his work at the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council, Chestertown RiverArts Gallery and Talbot County Visual Arts Center. He is also an active member and volunteer at the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council.

Mary Drake is a primarily self-taught artist who specializes in scroll saw art, a wood working technique which involves using an image to create a scroll saw pattern and carving out a design with a saw spiral type scroll saw blade. Her passion for this technique began several years ago when she attended a scroll wood art workshop. She enjoys designing and carving various subjects including fretwork landscapes, pet portraits and puzzles. Her designs have been featured in shows at the Chestertown RiverArts Gallery and the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council. She is an active member of several art organizations including the Queen Anne’s County Arts Council and Chestertown RiverArts.
