New York-area artist Mort Kunstler's latest painting, a nod to Washington County's Civil War heritage, will be the focal point at a Benjamin Art Gallery show this weekend.
The Hagerstown gallery will host an art show and signing Saturday that shares the painting's namesake, "Maryland, My Maryland," which also is the state song.
The original will be on display Saturday and during a preview reception with food, wine and live music Friday, said Molly Amos, Benjamin Art Gallery director.
Several costumed Civil War re-enactors will sing the state song during the show's opening Saturday, Amos said. In addition, signed and numbered reprints of "Maryland, My Maryland" will be sold. Reprints cost between $225 to $725.
