Lemon Tree Gallery and Studio   --   Cape Charles
Client Pic

SMALL TOWN, BIG ART

Clelia Sheppard still feels nostalgia for her native Italy—the art, the landscape, the savoring of life’s pleasures. But after 25 years of living on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, she has developed another true love of land and culture. Artist, non-profit maven, and now entrepreneur, Sheppard is deepening her roots in Cape Charles with Lemon Tree Gallery and Studio, an interactive space that will build on the town’s new tradition of global and local arts.

Sheppard is not alone. Since 2011 her daughter Renata has gathered international artists to create films and interactive art pieces in the historic small town by the Chesapeake Bay. A choreographer and artist, Renata is now spearheading her creative placemaking initiatives under a new organization: GEAR— Global Exchange Arts Roundtable.

“We’re reimagining the non-profit model,” says Renata, who envisions GEAR as a channel to nurture interaction between people and places through the arts, science, and technology. “Sharing space allows us to maximize efficiency and impact for both the community and the artists.” GEAR will produce Experimental Film Virginia as well as Friday Nights at Lemon Tree, when the gallery’s stage will come alive with interactive experiences for both children and adults. “We’re bending the definition of a gallery,” says Clelia. “This is not a place where you go in silently and stare at the wall. Friday nights there will be discussions, classes, readings, dancing, theatre, comedy, music. Any day you might find one of our artists working in their studio, or you might want to sit down yourself at our community table or at our pottery station and create something of your own.”

Lemon Tree, which occupies the space formerly known as the Stage Door Gallery, is Sheppard’s new venture after directing Arts Enter Cape Charles for nearly two decades. “Now I can concentrate on evolving as an artist while being an active participant in the lives of other creative people, which inspires me,” says Clelia, who will manage the gallery with former co-director of Arts Enter, Mary Ann Roehm.

Renowned water colorist Thelma Peterson and emerging painter Bethany Simpson join Clelia as Lemon Tree’s permanent artists-in-residence. Rebecca Daryl Smith, a fiber artist from Brooklyn, is the featured visiting artist for the inaugural exhibition, which runs from April 9-June 19. The Lemon Tree Collective will include works by both local and regional artists from an eclectic range of genres, including plein air, realism, abstract, and modern art. Friday Nights at Lemon Tree will include flatfooting with live Appalachian music and occasional Salottos, inspired by the Italian version of art salons.

“The goal is to have a conversation built on respect and curiosity,” says Renata, who is working to connect Cape Charles to Hampton Roads, and Hampton Roads to metro areas like New York. DC, Richmond, and beyond.

Virginia Country Cured Hams are neither precooked nor sliced and require a little extra effort to prepare them, but we know you’ll agree they are well worth the time.

To provide you with the very best in flavor, our Virginia Country Cured Hams are cured with salt and sodium nitrate. Pepper coated and cold smoked with hickory and red oak.

Business Description

It is gathering place, graced by weathered porch rockers that welcome you into an art gallery and gift shop rivaling New York’s finest.

It is a creative educator, grounding small-town children in history and the arts while big-city kids savor a taste of country life.

It is a museum that shelters yesterday’s culture of the islanders and watermen, and it is a farm that follows today’s best practices to cultivate the land. 

Yet it is, most of all, a storyteller, safeguarding the wisdom of our past for the sake of the Eastern Shore’s future.

Education here feels a lot like fun

Standing just off Route 13, Barrier Islands Center wears many hats well.  Here, history is in its heyday, from century-old photos and artifacts donated by Hog Island natives, to story-filled tours conducted by an island family descendant, to the mysterious twisted chimney of our own building.

But what was founded in 1996 as a place to preserve the heritage of Virginia’s 23 remote Barrier Islands has evolved into a wide-reaching initiative. Not only has Barrier Islands Center re-anchored the community to a fundamental legacy, it now connects residents up and down the Shore in a variety of meaningful ways.

With the Shore’s natural beauty offering fertile ground for the imagination, it’s no surprise that educational programs abound at the BIC. Each year we serve a growing number of students. 

Teachers from local schools now rely on our exhibits and programs to move history out of the books and into the lives of their pupils. Our ever-changing summer camps fill up as fast as they hit the schedule, and Shore artisans hold workshops here that pass along authentic techniques to beginners of all ages, as they fashion their own heirlooms-to-be.

A center for education is just one way we’ve become a vital community resource.  

Our roots in the community run deep

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Barrier Islands Center is housed at the Historic Almshouse Farm and comprises three noteworthy buildings.  The oldest, known as the Quarter Kitchen, dates all the way back to 1725.  Two almshouses, one from the 1890s and the other built in 1910, showcase architecture and construction techniques from those eras.

Yet it’s the lives of the former Barrier Islands residents and their descendants that give these buildings their soul. When those families were forced to uproot themselves from the only life they knew and move to the mainland, sadly, they weren’t exactly welcomed warmly into the community. So having a place today that’s dedicated to not only preserving but celebrating their legacy – well, you can imagine the pride they now feel.

Then there’s the farm. Though we’re quickly accessible off the Shore’s main highway, you wouldn’t know it by the view from our front porch. Eighteen acres of farmland surround the BIC; we lease it to a respected local farmer who grows wheat and soybeans using no-till farming practices to protect the land. 

We’d like to think that virtually everyone who lives on the Shore has attended one of our events. There’s the annual Oyster Roast, Art and Music on the Farm, camps and classes for children, art exhibits, wine-tastings, decoy-making classes, lectures on the Shore’s food history – there’s no end to the diversity of activities hosted by Barrier Islands Center. We’re nothing if not flexible, something we’ve no doubt learned from the people whose lives we showcase here.

With the hurricane of 1933, Mother Nature sealed the fate of those Barrier Island families. But in accepting the need to leave the islands behind for safety of the mainland, many of those hardy folk didn’t just pack up suitcases. They picked up entire houses, put them on barges, and floated them into their new lives.

Little did they know what a gift their wherewithal and indomitable spirit would be to the 21st century.
