“We passed that summer lost in love, beneath the Lemon Tree.”

— Peter, Paul, and Mary

As lovers of art and beauty, we carefully curate our paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and gifts for the discerning buyer. Our mission is to connect you to the unique art that was meant for you all along.

Inspired by gallery owner Clelia Sheppard’s Italian heritage, our philosophy at Lemon Tree Gallery & Studio is that art helps you savor life. Whether you’re feeling that Chesapeake Bay breeze as you sip a limoncello on our patio, or you’re falling in love with a painting that makes your heart race, time spent at Lemon Tree is a guaranteed dose of Sorrento sunshine—right here in the historic town of Cape Charles.

“Whether it’s a sunset wrapped in fog or a tree in full bloom, art is a part of everyday life, and each moment is unrepeatable. It’s a universal language that knows no geographic boundaries.”

– Lemon Tree resident artist and curator Clelia Sheppard

“We’re bending the definition of a gallery. This is not a place where you go in silently and stare at the wall.”
