A Frederick, Maryland native, Chris learned much of his craft while a student at Gov.
Thomas Johnson High School, training with renowned watercolor painter Barry Richardson.

After years of working as a graphic designer for newspapers, including The Frederick News-Post and The Washington Post, Chris began focusing more on his painting skills, developing a talent for creating photo-like watercolor images through meticulous attention to detail.  Much of his work depicts historic buildings and structures, town scenes, churches, old cars, trucks, and tractors, evoking memories of days gone by.

Carr died in a tragic 2018 accident, but his art legacy lives on through continued shows and festivals, gallery showings and sales and, importantly, through The Chris Carr Fine Arts and Graphic Design Scholarship established through Frederick Community College Foundation.  All proceeds from sales of his paintings at this exhibit go directly to this wonderful scholarship to help deserving art students hone their craft.

Come take a look!
