ESAL Gallery Show: "Fantasy and Reality Mix"  -  Onancock
(9/12/2014)

 

 

What is real,  what is fantasy?

  What seems simple isn't easy to figure at all.  Visual puzzles  challenge the imagination. 

What is real has been debated for centuries. What about ghosts, for example?    Does everyone see the same thing in a pattern or a painting?

 This month the artists at the ESAL Gallery in Onancock will intrigue Gallery visitors with a show whose theme is

  "Fantasy and Reality Mixed".  The opening reception  is  Friday, September 12 from 5 to 8 PM coinciding with  Second Friday

 celebrations in Onancock.  It will continue through mid October. 

The ESAL Gallery is located at 59 Market Street.   Light refreshments will be served. 

 

Regular Gallery hours are 10 AM to 4PM from Wednesday through Friday, and 10AM to 3PM on Saturday.

Anglers Club Bay Challenge  -  Onancock
(9/20/2014)
Calendar Image

24th Onancock Bay Challenge

 

Sponsored by the Eastern Shore of Virginia Anglers Club, the 2014 Onancock Bay Challenge will take place this year on Saturday, September 20.

Now in its twenty-fourth year, the popular event emphasizes families and fishing for the diverse fish species available on the Eastern Shore.

Youths 16 and under are eligible to fish for free in the Bay Challenge, while there is only a $25 entry fee for adults. Adult plaques and youth trophies will be awarded for the largest and second-largest entries in eight categories: croaker, spot, bluefish, flounder, gray trout, speckled trout, sand mullet, and red drum (18 to 26 inches long). If you happen to bring in the largest oyster toad, you’ll win something for that, too.

The major category plaques and trophies are sponsored by SeaHawk Sports Center, Don’s Tackle Shop, and Seaworthy Marine. Registered anglers will be eligible for a drawing to win valuable prizes sponsored by PNC Bank, Janet's General Store and Cafe, The Blarney Stone Pub, Mason-Davis Realty, Ben's Carpet, Shore Tire and Auto, Chesapeake Bay Pizza Company, and Christine Murphy-Coldwell Banker.

Anglers must register prior to the event, and all people fishing from the same boat must be registered for the event. Fishing is with rod and reel or hand line only, and begins at 6:30 A.M. Anglers have to present their fish to be weighed in at the Onancock Wharf by 5:30 P.M., and are encouraged to release anything that they will not eat or enter in the event. Sept. 21 is the bad weather day.

Official rules and entry forms are available at Don’s Tackle Shop, SeaHawk Sports Center, Seaworthy Marine, the Onancock Harbormaster’s Office, and on the Angler’s Club website.
