About Martin BarryMartin Barry (1927-1999), a lifelong resident of Maryland is one of the East Coast's most well respected pen and ink and watercolor artists. A graduate of Loyola College, he attended the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Schuler School of Fine Art.
His portfolio contains hundreds of limited and unlimited edition prints. Much of his work depicts points of interest primarily along the Eastern Seaboard, including scenes of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Annapolis, Washington, D.C., Williamsburg, Richmond, Norfolk, and the Chesapeake Bay. In addition, his portfolio presents an extensive selection of schools, colleges, and universities throughout the United States.
Barry's works are included in many important collections. His rendition of The Cathedral in Baltimore was chosen by the Vatican for a special issue commemorative stamp. His works can also be found in the archives of the Jimmy Carter Library, the Vatican, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore City Hall, and the Apostolic Delegation in Washington, D.C. Barry was also commissioned by the governor of Maryland for an original work as the state's gift to the Republic of China.
Following in his father's footsteps, Martin Barry III continues to operate the gallery and workshop, Martin Barry Ltd., in Towson, Maryland.
About Hooper Strait LighthouseThe Hooper Strait Lighthouse, now standing on Navy Point, was originally built in 1879 to light the way for boats passing through the shallow, dangerous shoals of Hooper Strait, a thoroughfare for boats bound from the Chesapeake Bay across Tangier Sound to Deals Island or places along the Nanticoke and Wicomico Rivers. As a “screwpile” lighthouse, it is built on special iron pilings which were tipped with a screw that could be turned into the muddy bottom for a depth of 10 feet or more. The Museum’s lighthouse is the second lighthouse constructed at Hooper Strait – the first one was destroyed by ice in 1877.
