2017 Banner Program

SMAL is linked to the town through our banners. Residents and visitors alike have come to anticipate the new images that grace the town each year. The banners hang on the poles of Talbot Street from April through November. No other event showcases the amazing talent and diversity of SMAL artists to such a broad audience – and we are proud to show off our stuff! The program is open exclusively to members of SMAL. Artists  create a piece of art– street scenes, boats, people, wildlife, abstract, realistic, whatever depicts and celebrates our unique town. The original artwork is created in oils, watercolor, acrylic or multimedia and then scanned, printed and transformed into a Banner. The artist always retains ownership of the original piece. A limited number of pieces are selected to be made into posters and sold by local merchants. Not only is the banner artwork displayed on the poles in town for more than 8 months but also, the original pieces will be exhibited and offered for sale at a month long exhibit in the St. Michaels Library in April. Banners and original banner artwork have become a popular sale item at the art league’s annual Labor Day show.
