Live Painting by George Kalwa

Enjoy a close brush with Chesapeake Bay artist George Kalwa who will create a live painting during our event.  Watch his artistry unfold.  Baltimore native George Kalwa has been inspired by the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay his entire life. A born artist, he began painting and making fishing lures as a child, then drew portraits on the Ocean City boardwalk as a young man before graduating from MICA.  A master of marine art, The Billfish Foundation named him 2020 Artist of the Year, writing, “…he is inspired by light, contrast, and color…From his time as a courtroom illustrator, Kalwa has the unique ability to draw things quickly, as they are happening. This ability has enabled him to create paintings that seem to move in front of your eyes, dropping you into the exact moment a blue marlin breaches the water to fight the line or a white marlin breaks the surface to capture unlucky prey.”  Taste For Life is honored to have Kalwa share his gifts with us by creating a live painting at our event.  He has generously donated art to our auctions as well.  Find him on Facebook @GeorgeKalwaFineArt.
