At this time, all events and programs through April 30 will be postponed, including the Annapolis Trip. Registered attendees will be contacted directly by the office no later than March 20, 2020. 

Join the JRA in an Arts & Architecture tour of Annapolis to see three distinct collectors' homes, an artist visit, and lunch at the historic Reynolds Tavern in downtown Annapolis. Each collection features very different architectural styles and collections. Guests will experience the modern collection and architecture of Kitty and Tom Stoner, the award-winning minimalist farmhouse of Marilyn Lyons inspired by traditional shucker shanties of Chesapeake bay; and the international eclectic collection of Janet and Bill Pearson set in a traditional home on 150 acres. The Pearson's are coming back from Florida just for this event!
