Welcome to the Ward Museum

The Ward Museum is excited about the upcoming changing exhibits.  The LaMay Gallery is host to the unique painter Patrick Henry.  An Eastern Shore native who over the course of a life time has been able to capture the essence of Delmarva through his own vision of people and places of the shore. 

In the Welcome Gallery we have, 50 Years of Art, Nature, & Tradition:  Ward Foundation Retrospective. This exhibit is a celebration of the Ward Foundations 50th Anniversary.  Established in 1968 to honor the legacy of Lem and Steve Ward, the foundation has grown to be a leader in the arts and cultural community of Maryland and beyond.  This Welcome gallery exhibit will showcase on the history of the foundation, its leaders and its impact in the community and beyond.
Thank you to all our volunteers, guests, vendors, and competitors that helped make our 48th Annual Ward World Championship Wildfowl Carving and Art Festival a success! Congratulations to all of our competitors for entering your wonderful works of art!  The new Ward World Championship winners are now on display in the Championship Gallery here at the Museum.  We hope you can stop by and see these amazing winning pieces of art.
