Our Story

Established in November 2009, The Palette & The Page is a woman owned gallery that carries art by local artists, books by local authors, gently used books, the music of local singer/songwriters and offers workshops. We are located in Elkton, Maryland, a designated Arts and Entertainment District in the State of Maryland.

Our gallery is stocked with a collection of beautiful handmade items – paintings, drawings, photography, hand-rendered lettering art, handcrafted jewelry, finely crafted paper items, textile arts (including baby items), pottery, ceramics, greeting cards, wood turned items, letterpress, hand-cut stones, body care products and more. We carry children’s books, young adult books and fiction & nonfiction adult books by local authors and a wonderful collection of gently used books in all those categories as well.

As part of our mission, we are committed to expanding the Arts & Entertainment District in downtown Elkton through our First Friday Opening Receptions in conjunction with the Downtown Elkton Art Loop. These evenings, from 5pm to 8pm, we showcase new local artists in our gallery in addition to our full time gallery artists, provide great live music, generally have at least one book signing, and refreshments. Many businesses and other artistic venues in Elkton join us in providing unique events on the first Friday of the month.

We have poetry/creative writing readings and are pleased to collaborate with Cecil College each year.

Our goals are many: to support Artists, Authors, Musicians, Poets, the Arts, and to provide YOU a place to find unique, handmade, artistic items for yourself and gifts for your family and your friends.
