Featured artist: Erick Sahler Serigraphs

You won’t find any geese or skipjacks in the limited-edition silkscreen prints of Erick Sahler. His “Eastern Shore art for the rest of us” salutes the common but often overlooked events and institutions — like Smith Island cake, the Delmar stock car races and the old Chincoteague swing bridge — that make life on the peninsula so special.

“The Eastern Shore is chockfull of so many great traditions that make it such a wonderful place to live and make art,” Sahler said. “I want to celebrate them all.”

Sahler learned his craft as a teenager, apprenticing for a Salisbury screen printer and studying with Eastern Shore painter C. Keith Whitelock. He graduated from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a bachelor’s degree in visual arts and has created commercial artwork for clients across the Eastern Shore for three decades.

All serigraphs by Sahler are printed by hand in his Salisbury, Md., studio using Earth-friendly archival inks on acid-free paper. In addition to the prints, his art is also available on mugs, postcards and tees.

You can find his work in shops across Delmarva. For a list of sellers and upcoming events or to order a piece online, go to
