Print depicting Severna Park goes on sale

As part of an campaign to generate community spirit, Severna Park officials are promoting a limited edition print called "The Spirit of Severna Park."

The work, by local artist Anne-Marie Esson, will be on display for sale from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. April 22 at Side Street Framers in Park Plaza Shopping Center on Ritchie Highway.

The 18-by-24-inch watercolor is an "ideal representation" of Severna Park, with boats, water, flowers and trees, said Barbara Baumgartner, a member of the Severna Park Chamber of Commerce fund-raising committee.

There will be a limited edition of 950 prints on sale for $45 each.

"It's great. It's absolutely beautiful," Ms. Baumgartner said. "It's very exciting. We've done a lot of work on it for a long time, and I think everybody's going to love it."

The Chamber of Commerce plans to use the money to "do more for the community," Ms. Baumgartner said. "We want to contribute more to community life, but the only way we can is if we have funds."

The print also will be available at an Art and Antique Show at Park Plaza's Art in the Park store. The free show is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. April 24 and noon to 4 p.m. April 25. For more information, call Cheryl Schmidt or Diane Neighoff at 647-9612.
