John Barber's Chesapeake: 50 Years of Maritime Art

June 15, 2014 - October 12, 2014 at the Deltaville Maritime Museum

Dear friends,
As many of you know, one of my favorite spots on the Chesapeake is Deltaville, Virginia near the mouth of the Rappahannock River. We have owned a home there and have boated from this quaint little town for years.This summer the Deltaville Maritime Museum will open a retrospective exhibit of over 50 of my paintings for four months. These paintings go back 50 years and most have been borrowed from their owners. There is also information attached about an original oil painting that I created for the Museum titled “ Schooner Maggie off Stingray Point”. This painting will be raffled with all proceeds benefitting the Museum.
The Exhibition will be open through October 12, 2014 from 10 AM – 4 PM, Monday -Sunday.  Admission is - $15 per adult - or you can join the museum - $15 Individual Membership; $25 Family Membership.

Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park

Welcome to the site of one of the most interesting small museums on the Chesapeake Bay. The Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park was founded in September, 2002 as an institution to collect and preserve the boatbuilding history of Deltaville, once called the “Boatbuilding Capital of the Chesapeake.” The mission of the museum is also to preserve the boatbuilding skills that made the area famous through activities, such as our annual Family Boatbuilding Week held every July, and through educational programs initiated in our Boatbuilding Shop, such as the rebuilding of the 63’ log bottomed buyboat, the F.D. Crockett.


We look forward to welcoming you to the Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park.


The Holly Point Nature Park is open dawn to dusk every day. Pets always welcome, however dogs must be kept on a leash. Thanks!
