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.
