Spy Minute: A Birthday Party for the Academy Art Museum


There was a full day of birthday activities at the Academy Art Museum on Saturday to celebrate sixty remarkable  years of service to the Mid-Shore. As with the actual mission of the museum to teach and show art, the open house allowed visitors to look at paintings from its permanent collection, participate in community art project to produce a commemorative flag, listen in on a class, or simply chit-chat with friends.

The Spy was there to capture some of the fun.

    There’s a rather significant event happening this Friday at Book Plate 6-8pm. You should have received an invitation from Tom Martin, but we understand he’s celebrating his 50th college reunion and won’t be back for a couple of days; hence, I am reaching out to you now.

    My husband, Neal Jackson, is launching his documentary photography book at Tom’s place. It is MARKET: Portraits from the World’s Meeting Place. Starting with the Chestertown Farmer’s Market, Neal has photographed public markets in 20 countries from Bosnia to Vietnam. He has captured the sellers, the stuff, the soul.

    Neal will be interviewed at the Book Plate during the reception by Marcy Dunn Ramsey. He has left a phone message for the Spy and would appreciate hearing from you so he can bring you a copy of the book and hopefully you can announce this free, open-to-the-public event on Friday. His mobile: 202-365-4070.

    Thanks so much,
