Maryland Humanities Announces Next Stop of Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition

Share

Maryland Humanities is pleased to announce that its statewide tour of The Way We Worked, a Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition, will move to its second stop in Chestertown on March 31. Sumner Hall (G.A.R. Post #25) will host the exhibition and along with its principal partner, Washington College’s C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience, will feature companion exhibits and programming across the county highlighting Kent County’s work history.

The grand opening on March 31 will feature a reception and preview party honoring exhibition producers, organizers, sponsors, partners, elected officials, and community volunteers, as well as a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The preview party will be held from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Sultana Education Foundation, located just two blocks away from Sumner Hall. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 6:30 p.m. on the front steps of Sumner Hall. After the ceremony, participants will be invited to preview the exhibition in small groups.      

The companion exhibition at Sumner Hall, The Black Labor Experience in Kent County, will feature four displays:  (1) theStory of the Founders of Sumner Hall and the 471 African Americans who served with the Union forces during the Civil War;  (2) an exploration of the contribution of Free and Enslaved Labor in Kent County – from the Revolutionary War-era through the end of the 19th Century; (3) Tools of the Trades:  a display of traditional farm, fishing, household, and office “tools” used in Kent County; and (4) contemporary stories – Oral Work Histories  of Community Members.  There will also be a Kids Corner with hands-on activities for young children. 

The C. V. Starr Center is also offering three special events:  (1) a keynote lecture by Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed:  On (Not) Getting By in America; (2) Choppin’ at the Shop  – an original multimedia work of music, the art of conversation, and photography as it relates to African Americans who work or have worked in Kent County; and (3) A Walk Through Working Chestertown.  In addition, more than fifteen other venues across the county are hosting exhibits, lectures, and programs celebrating workers in the community. 

Nina Johnson, executive director of Sumner Hall, said:  “Hosting this exhibition has given us a unique opportunity to explore the rich history of the way we have worked in our communities across Kent County.   The Museum on Main Street project has allowed our community to come together in creative ways to identify individual stories and to document them. It has been a rewarding experience to see how our collaboration with Washington College, the Kent County Public Schools, the Historical Society of Kent County, the Sultana Educational Foundation, the Museums of Kent, the Kent County Public Library, and other local organizations and businesses has resulted in an exciting menu of educational and cultural programs across the county. While we are proud of all these offerings, our companion exhibition that showcases the contributions of Kent County African American workers from the 1650s to the present is especially important. The Way We Worked initiative has truly been a ‘win-win’ experience for everyone!”

“We’re delighted to bring The Way We Worked to five small communities across the state and celebrate Maryland’s diverse and engaging work history, from the paper and steel mills of the 19th Century to the technology boom of today. We hope you’ll join us in exploring the rich local history unearthed through each community’s companion exhibit and programming,” said Phoebe Stein, executive director of Maryland Humanities.

The Way We Worked will be on view at Sumner Hall March 31–May 20, 2017. Sumner Hall is located at 206 South Queen Street in Chestertown, Maryland. Learn more at sumnerhall.org.

Kent County Fifth Graders Learn About Art and Science

Share

On March 11 and March 18, Kent County Public Schools’ art teacher, Aimee Boumiea and three elementary students visited David and Patti Hegland in their glassmaking studio in downtown Chestertown. The students were chosen through an essay contest, and the winners were those with the best response to why they wanted to learn about making glass.

The students had an opportunity to learn about the science behind art glass while they created artistic pieces of their own. One of the concepts they studied was “Equilibrium thickness” which is the thickness to which glass will naturally settle after being melted, about 1/4 inch. The students got to observe how large pieces will expand or flatten out to that thickness, and thinner pieces of glass retract to that size when they are cooled. They also learned about reactive colors. Glass is colored with different elements and when those elements come in contact with each other in the melting process, it produces a halo of a new reactive color.

Patti and David Hegland of Hegland Glass work with students from area elementary schools to create glass art

The program is part of the Arts in Motion program through Kent County Public Schools and was sponsored through a grant from the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust. The idea for the program came from Tom McHugh, KCPS Facilitator for Fine Arts, and was championed by Fine Arts Supervisor Gina Jachimowicz as a great way for students to see art and science in action. McHugh reached out to Patti and David Hegland who were eager to participate. The Heglands are nationally recognized fine artisans, having won the Niche award for glass in 2013 as well as being finalists for the award in 2014 and 2015. They began a second career as glass artists in Chestertown after leaving successful careers in engineering and finance.

When asked about their participation, David Hegland stated that they are supporters of public education and had a great time with the students. He stated, “It’s amazing how quickly the kids learned and were able to put together their own pieces of glass art. They gained an understanding of the physics of glass and had fun composing their own works of art.” Each student left the program with one or two pieces of glass art that they created as well as a better understanding of how scientific concepts are applied in the real world.

Peabody Conservatory Children’s Opera at the Garfield

Share

The Peabody Conservatory of Music’s opera department will be at the Garfield Center for the Arts at 10am on Tuesday, March 28th with a performance of Papageno! This special morning show is part of the Garfield Center’s Educational Outreach Program and is made possible by support from the Kent County Arts Council and the Hedgelawn Foundation. Papageno! is a 55–minute condensation of Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute and is ideal for a younger audience.

 

The main plot thread of the original opera is maintained, but the whole thing is presented from Papageno’s point of view, with the other characters as adjuncts to his story. Those familiar with the opera will note that the roles of Papageno, Papagena, Monostatos, and the three Ladies are virtually complete; Tamino, Pamina, and the Queen of the Night sing about half their music; and Sarastro and all the priestly characters are omitted. The roles of The Queen of the Night and Papagena are doubled by two of the three Ladies.

The Educational Outreach Program at the Garfield Center offers bi-annual high quality multi-cultural performances as a field trip opportunity to the local public and private schools. Tickets are $5, with special rates available for school groups. Tickets for individuals can be purchased only at the door, while school groups should contact the Garfield Center ahead of time to make seating arrangements. Please call 410-810-2060 or contact thogans@garfieldcenter.org to reserve your seats. The Garfield Center for the Arts is located at 210 High Street in Chestertown.

Call for Artists: “At Work” Exhibition

Share

RiverArt’s May exhibition “At Work” celebrates the work we do and have done in this community through art and stories. Artists are invited to submit art in any 2 or 3-dimensional media that depicts folks at work. Our goal is to show a wide diversity of work including working on farms, on the water, in factories and businesses, in the arts and in the service field. Though art depicting local work is preferred, art depicting work in any geographic area and in any media which is relevant to the theme will be considered.

“At Work” is a companion exhibit to the traveling Smithsonian exhibit, “The Way We Worked,” on display at Sumner Hall from March 31 through May 19. The exhibit will also include photographs and stories from Vita Foods, a pickling plant where many African Americans worked in the 1940’s through 1973.

“Boatbuilder” by Bob Miller

“At Work” will be curated by Lani Seikaly, longstanding RiverArts curator and Leslie Raimond, director of the Kent County Arts Council, both of whom have been active oral historians of Kent County residents.

Opening Reception will be held on May 7 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm in conjunction with Chestertown’s First Friday. The reception is free and open to the public.

For more information on the exhibit and to submit on line, visit www.chestertownriverarts.org and click on exhibitions, or call RiverArts at 410 778 6300.

Jazz Concert at The Garfield Center

Share

Saturday, April 1, 2017 won’t just be April Fools’ Day – it also will be Music Lovers Day at The Garfield Center for the Arts at the Prince Theatre in Chestertown, Maryland.

WAMMIES* award-winning jazz guitarist Rick Whitehead will team up with jazz and classical pianist Stef Scaggiari to bring the audience an exciting program of selections from the standard jazz repertoire and pieces composed by Whitehead and Scaggiari.

After solo stints during the first half of the program, the two artists will come together after Intermission for vocals with piano by Scaggiari with accompaniment by Whitehead on guitar. The program’s finale will include one of Whitehead’s signature entertainments – requests from the audience that Whitehead melds into a melodic whole – a piece of music that is new and different for every performance and that is a true gift for listeners!

This fun evening begins at 7 PM. Tickets, $15 each, are available online at www.eventbrite.com/e/rick-whitehead-in-concert-tickets-32412015210?ref=ecal or by calling the Garfield Center Box Office at (410) 810-2060. The Garfield Center is located at 210 High Street in Chestertown, Maryland on the beautiful Eastern Shore.

About Rick Whitehead. Rick Whitehead, one of the Baltimore-Washington area’s most honored and sought-after guitarists, was the featured guitarist with the Airmen of Note for 22 years. He retired from the Air Force in 1991 and now performs, teaches, and records jazz standards and his own compositions. According to Eric Brace of the Washington Post, “Whitehead’s style encompasses the entire history of jazz guitar.” Rick’s last appearance in Chestertown was at last year’s Chestertown Jazz Festival.

About Stef Scaggiari. Centreville resident Stef Scaggiari is well known to area classical and jazz buffs for his “lyricism, flawless technique, and crystalline touch” (Jazz Times Magazine). Jazz vocalist Ethel Ennis notes that Stef is one of the few musicians who has “successfully bridge[d] the artificial gap between classic European music, American Jazz, and popular song.” From Bach to Billy Joel – it is all in Stef Scaggiari’s repertoire.

This concert is part of the Garfield Center’s new initiative to add jazz and classical music to its musical programming. These new concerts are programmed by Kent County resident and life-long classical and jazz music lover Muphen R. Whitney. The next concert in this series will be on Saturday, May 6 at 7 PM and will feature the D’Amore Duo with classical guitarist William Feasley and oboist Emily Tsai.

* WAMMIES are awarded each year by the Washington Area Musician’s Association. Whitehead won in 1998 for Best Contemporary Jazz Album (“Live in Captivity” recorded with his jazz trio) and in 2006 for “Best Jazz Instrumentalist”. (For further information: www.wamadc.com/wama/the_wammies.html)

Parts and Labor: A Survey Exhibition of Print and Collage Works by Steven Ford

April 22–July 9, 2017

Steven Ford layers colors via simply carved linocut blocks and collagraph plates. The linocut blocks are often re-inked and reprinted with the paper shifted to create layering and cross hatched patterns. The collagraph plates print “real” textures from items such as popsicle sticks and lathe from old plaster walls. Ford works quickly, rolling ink onto the blocks and cranking them through an etching press. At times the thin, strong Asian papers are folded like an accordion bellows and printed, then flattened and printed some more. Steven Ford is represented by Dolan/Maxwell Gallery, Philadelphia.

Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years, is the first exhibition to focus on the early career of Peter Voulkos, from 1953–1968. While trained as a traditional potter, Voulkos’ radical methods and ideas during this period opened up the possibilities for ceramics in ways that are still being felt today. The exhibition will feature approximately 35 examples from this crucial body of early work, most of which have not been exhibited on the East Coast for four decades. Also included will be two of the artist’s rarely seen works in oil on canvas, which help to demonstrate how Voulkos developed his ideas concurrently in painting, sculpture, and pottery.
