Longer tenured FBYC members will recall the wonderful spectacles of spinnaker filled horizons, the festival of land based events, and multiple nights of dining and charity auctions that comprised the Leukemia Cup Regatta. Alas, the Southern Bay LCR met its demise more than half a decade ago, but lingering memories of the excitement and sense of community that it fostered still abide. One of the more unique of the LCR events was Arts on Fishing Bay, a Friday evening marine art exhibit and sale held at our main clubhouse and featuring a variety of local artists and artisans.
To recapture the spirit of that event we are initiating a new art exhibit on the second floor of the main clubhouse. Fellow club member Stella Jones is our inaugural artist.
When you next visit your club, come see Stella’s exquisite display of marine watercolors featuring scenes you will recognize. Arts on Fishing Bay is a rotating exhibit featuring the talents of FBYC artists and artisans. To participate by exhibiting your own portfolio of marine related arts or crafts, contact FBYC Historian George Burke, gwburke3@ gmail.com or 804-516-8600.
