Over fifty exhibitions are shown at the Delaplaine each year in eight different galleries. “We strive to maintain a balance between the familiar and the avant-garde, the local and the regional, and the professional and the amateur artist,” explained Manager of Exhibits Diane Sibbison. The center provides the Frederick region with educational opportunities and experiences in the visual arts through classes, exhibits, and programs and it does so with enthusiasm and a creative flare.

The Delaplaine hosts beautiful exhibits and events. It also has art classes for children and adults. I've been there for several receptions, art openings and exhibits of art and photography. I'm always impressed. The gift shop is also very nice and has affordable, unique gifts/cards.
