In 1963, Maryland Federation of Art (MFA) and the Circle Gallery were established to develop professional exhibition opportunities for the local art community. The MFA primarily supports emerging and underrepresented artists with member-only art shows and small exhibitions at Circle Gallery, its home since 1968. To showcase artwork from across the country, MFA sponsors national exhibitions at Circle Gallery, furnishing innovative new works for the local population to explore. Educational opportunities also engage local artists and art enthusiasts with programs specifically aimed at underserved populations including youth and adults with learning disabilities.

Irish Traditions owner Margaret Barry McLemore and her staff specialize in imported Irish and Scottish goods, but they don’t just sell physical wares–they also give customers guidance on how to inject Celtic tradition into celebrations ranging from weddings to first communions. Inside two boutique stores in Easton and Annapolis, staff members help visitors navigate shelves stocked with Irish-made cable-knit sweaters, scarves, cardigans, and jackets. Elsewhere in the shop, they keep a full stock of finery including wedding candles embellished with Celtic trinity and claddagh symbols, Galway crystalware and Belleek china, Celtic books and music, and Irish jewelry inspired by folk myths.
When formal occasions beckon, staff members can tailor full Highland traditional wear, fashioning custom kilts and tartan scarves, ties, and sashes bearing the marks of Scotland’s ancient clans or each of the 32 Irish counties. Irish Traditions also helps visitors get in touch with their ancestry, partnering with CIE Tours for several annual trips to cities and villages across the Emerald Isle.
For the last two years, runners from across Maryland have gathered for the Be Great 5K Run & Fun Walk to benefit the Annapolis Boys & Girls Scholarship Trust. The trust has provided financial support to more than 25 students to help them attend college over the last 10 years, and proceeds from the race go toward the scholarship fund. Before the race, runners are given a bib that tracks their time and pace better than an hourglass taped to their torso. After crossing the finish line, racers are rewarded with refreshments, and a lucky few are awarded prizes.
