Community Bank of the Chesapeake Partners With Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts

Waldorf, Maryland, March 30, 2015 — Local art will soon be on display inside Community Bank of the Chesapeake's Central Park branch as the bank begins a new partnership with the Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts (FCCA). The bank will display artwork beginning April 1, 2015 from local artists in exhibits that will rotate quarterly. All artwork on display in the branches will be available for purchase.

“At Community Bank, we support our community in a number of different ways," said Diane Hicks, Assistant Vice President and Marketing Manager with Community Bank of the Chesapeake. "This partnership gives us the opportunity to support our talented local artists, as well as an organization that enriches the lives of the people of Fredericksburg. We invite our customers and the general public to stop by our branch and see these exhibits.” 

Community Bank's Central Park location will be the third branch to feature art from local art associations. Early last year, the bank worked with the Mattawoman Creek Art Center in Indian Head, Maryland to bring a rotating exhibit to its newly-redesigned La Plata branch. Later, the Bank partnered with the St. Mary's County Arts Council in Leonardtown, Maryland, to provide art for its Charlotte Hall location.

The Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization and a partner of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts of Richmond. The FCCA presents new juried art exhibits each month, along with special programs and events, and art classes for all ages, to the Fredericksburg community.
