About this Exhibit and the Artists

The Gallery at Woods will be commemorating Mother's Day with a Mother/Daughter Show. Painter, Thelma Green and her daughter, Dale Hall, a photographer who were both long time Severna Park residents years ago will be showing their work depicting Maryland's Eastern Shore which is where they both call home now. Thelma Green raised her family in Linstead on the Severn during the 60's and 70's and along with her family attended Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church. Thelma and Dale have shown their work in group shows held in the Gallery at Woods and Dale participated in one of the Woods' very first art shows during the 70's. Waterscapes and wataerfowl are inspiration for both mother and daughter. You will also see mans best friend in much of Dales work as well.

Thelma and Dale are both award winning artists and have participated in many art shows together on the Eastern Shore. They have both had their work chosen for permanent collections in Queen Anne's Emergency Center and The Hilton Garden Inn. you will also see their work in Kent Island gift shops and galleries.

Both mother and daughter started their artistic aspirations in their early teens and are still "at it" today. Thelma's first commission was painting horse heads on neck ties for Baltimore City policemen who did much of their work on horses at the time. She later became prolific with water colors, oils, and acrylics. Dale started by doing darkroom work in a closet in her house. She now uses photoshop to create and enhance her "captures" calling her business Dale Hall Photo Artistry. Her website name depicts much of her subject matter, www.chesapeakepics.com.


The Art Ministry

The Woods Art Ministry was created out of the conviction that the arts have an important role to play in the life of the church. Throughout history, the arts have been one of the significant ways that people express and understand religious truth.

The Art Ministry is responsible for art exhibits in the Wood Gallery and, from time to time, offers programs and resources related to the visual arts. These have included workshops, field trips and tours to view significant art, as well as providing visual arts for use in worship (banners, projected images, etc.)
