Annapolis - McBride Gallery

215 Main Street

McBride Gallery was established in 1980 near Annapolis' historic City Dock. In 1990 the gallery moved to larger quarters in one of the oldest buildings on upper Main Street.

The land was originally owned by William Paca, a Maryland signer of the Declaration of Independence. The gallery has maintained the colonial character of the Georgian styled home with three of the original fireplaces.

McBride Gallery is one of the largest galleries in Annapolis with 7 rooms of original art representing 60 artists. New art arrives every week. The highest quality paintings, sculpture and original graphics are featured in a home-like setting. McBride Gallery hosts 6 shows a year with receptions to meet the artists.

Annapolis has over 20 art galleries within walking distance. The Annual Annapolis Art Walk, the third Thursday evening in August offers an opportunity for art lovers to see artists and artisans demonstrating their talents.

A wonderful, little gallery with local artists and some more broadly known, but with top-tier talent. You won't find a Degas, but anything purchased will still bring lots of joy for yourself and praise from others. Much of the art is appropriate for the Chesapeake Bay area with beach wildlife out nautical settings, but it is not exclusively so. They sell paintings and sculptures, mostly originals, but with a few options for lithographs. We had a couple pieces framed here, and they did a marvelous job for a great price. Finally, of the owner and one other employee we met or extremely knowledgeable and helpful without being even remotely pushy. Feel free to come to shop or just to enjoy the artwork.
