Louis J. Feuchter - Marine Artist by Harold W. Hurst

The Eastern Shore’s scenic landscape, encompassing lovely beaches, picturesque shorelines, and numerous rivers and creeks, has long been a paradise for fishermen, watermen, and sailors. Man-made sailing vessels, used for transportation, fishing, and oyster dredging, have added to the many-hued visual panorama of this historic and unique region. Artists have often applied their skills in capturing the natural beau-

ties of the Bay region. There is something about the allure of the sailing vessels and marine craft that have crowded the waters of the Chesapeake Bay harbors that attracts the artist’s eye. Regional museums and art galleries are chock full of watercolors, oil paintings, and pencil sketches of the Eastern Shore’s beach scenes, rural life, waterfowl, and a wide variety of sailing vessels that have been a hallmark of the local maritime picture.
