AAM to Feature Lecture by American Fine Art Photographer Tina Barney

On Friday, April 27, 2018 at 6 p.m., the Academy Art Museum will feature its Kittredge-Wilson Lecture Series with a lecture by the highly-acclaimed American fine art photographer Tina Barney.  Barney is an American photographer best known for her large-scale, color portraits of her family and close friends. Her work is in the collections of the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film in Rochester, New York; the Museum of Modern Art in New York City; and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.

Barney began her career in the mid-1970s when she started photographing in color with a large-format view camera capturing the domestic life and private moments of the American and European elite. Her work chronicles the complexity of interpersonal relationships. Straddling the line between candid and choreographed photography, between engagement and detachment, she captures her subjects in a range of rarefied settings, both private and public. In choosing color over black and white and producing large-format prints, she broke the tradition of established fine-art photography at the time. Her unstintingly honest portrayal of her subjects, many of whom are family and friends, remains completely original.

The “New York Times” wrote, “For more than three decades, Tina Barney’s large-scale family photos have opened a window to a world beyond most people’s imagination — an idyllic dreamscape of sunny days in well-appointed houses filled with quintessentially dressed, all-American elites. It’s no wonder they are among her best-known works.”

Barney was the recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship in 1991, and the 2010 Lucie Award for Achievement in Portraiture.  Her monographs include Tina Barney: Theatre of Manners, The Europeans, and her new book from Steidl, Players. She will be signing copies of her recent Rizzoli publication, Tina Barney at the lecture. She lives in New York and Rhode Island.

The cost of the lecture is $24 for Museum members and $29 for non-members. Pre-registration is suggested.  Register online at academyartmuseum.org or call 410-822-2787.

Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore Launches Get Social Delmarva

Mindie Burgoyne

Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore (FACES) has announced the launch of Get Social Delmarva, a new marketing training conference for artists, crafters, and makers of all types. The conference will take place on Friday, April 27th at Chesapeake College.

Get Social Delmarva will present social media and digital marketing training specifically designed to help artists launch or grow a creative business. Although familiarity with social media will be helpful, the conference is intended to help small business owners who have little or no experience using social platforms for business purposes. All instruction will be provided at an introductory level.

“Our goal is to empower artists and crafters to grow their business using affordable marketing tools and strategies,” said Marina Dowdall, Executive Director of the Caroline County Council of Arts, the parent organization of FACES. She said that most artists and small business owners do not have the resources to hire a marketing agency. “With today’s technology, artists can ‘DIY’ their own marketing, which allows them to grow their business more quickly and reach customers all over the world.”

Get Social Delmarva will include a keynote address on Marketing 101, which will cover the fundamentals of developing a cohesive and effective marketing strategy. The address will include an interview with Steve Konopelski and Rob Griffith, owners of Turnbridge Point, a bed and breakfast and custom bakery in Denton. The couple will share insights about what they’ve learned about growing their business using digital marketing tools.

The conference will then break out into workshops on a variety of topics. The workshops are categorized in three tracks, though attendees do not have to stay within a single track. Tracks include Facebook for Business, Visual Media, and Web Presence. Examples of workshop topics include Facebook Advertising, Selling on Etsy, and Introduction to Instagram for Business.

Conference attendance has been limited to 100 people to ensure smaller class sizes in the workshops. Attendees will also have the opportunity to eat lunch with instructors and ask them questions in a small group setting.

FACES has received grant funding from Rural Maryland Council to help launch Get Social Delmarva. Rural Maryland Council supports projects that foster economic growth in the rural areas of the state. The arts are a key component of the tourism and downtown development strategies for small towns throughout the Eastern Shore and broader Delmarva region. The headline sponsor of Get Social Delmarva is Stories of the Chesapeake Heritage Area, an organization that promotes the heritage and unique communities of the Mid-Shore.

Registration for Get Social Delmarva is now open at GetSocialDelmarva.com. Tickets are $79 per person. There is a 20% discount for FACES members.

St. Michaels Art League Member’s Show this May

Arlene Zachmann painting called ‘Heidi’

The exhibit of original art, open to all mediums, will be on display in the gallery located in the back of the St. Michaels branch of the Talbot County Free Library from Tuesday, May 1 until Thursday, May, 31. Artwork may be purchased directly through the artist.

Easton Choral Arts to Present its 40th Season Finale

Easton Choral Arts Society to present its 40th season finale with Johannes Brahms’ commanding German Requiem, considered one of the greatest monuments of choral music, on Friday, April 27 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, April 29 at 4:00 PM at Christ Church in downtown Easton. It is a deeply moving and profound choral work, a large-scale piece for chorus, orchestra, soprano and baritone soloist. Under the direction of Artistic Director Wes Lockfaw, the chorus will be accompanied by Soprano Yulia Petrachuk, Baritone Javier Arrey and chamber orchestra.

Javier was born in Valdivia, Chile where he first studied piano and musical theory. Later he studied singing with Professor Hanns Stein at the Universidad de Chile, Santiago, and choir conducting at the Teatro Municipal. He is an alumnus of Washington National Opera’s Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program and the Castleton Festival under Lorin Maazel, and is considered the strongest, singer with a mellifluous, robust baritone. He is heralded as one of the most sought after bel canto baritones of the new generation. In 2017 he joined the roster of The Metropolitan Opera as Schaunard in La Bohème. 

Yulia Petrachuk and Javier Arrey

Born in Russia, Ms. Petrachuk studied at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory and is a graduate of the Bern Opera Studio in Bern, Switzerland. Her debut as a professional opera singer was with the State Theater Bern, Switzerland in 2010. According to Daniel Rigazzi, Stage Director at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City,“Yulia is a special and unique artist, able to hold her own on any stage in the world”.

The German Requiem emerged as a deeply personal musical memorial. Brahms was innovative in his combination of styles and use of vernacular German, so different from the long-standing Latin mass for the dead. This requiem, instead of creating a Mass for the dead, was dedicated to the mourners left behind on Earth. The result was a radiant, joy-filled work in seven sections, each concluding with a mood of cheerful confidence or loving promise. Brahms’ German Requiem is a work of great intensity that speaks to people of all faiths and to believers and non-believers alike.

Tickets are $25 for advanced sale and $30 at the door. Children are admitted free (reservation required). Purchase tickets at www.eastonchoralarts.org or call 410-200-0498.

The Easton Choral Arts Society is supported by grants from the Talbot County Arts Council, the Maryland State Arts Council and the Mid-Shore Community Foundation.

Garfield Center to Present Sondheim’s Dark Musical Sweeney Todd

On April 27th director Shelagh Grasso and musical director Julie Lawrence will be opening a new musical at the Garfield Center for the Arts; Stephen Sondheim & Hugh Wheeler’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. This will be the first musical that the Garfield Center has produced since Garfield Executive Director Tess Hogans directed My Fair Lady in 2016. This is a big year for musicals at the Garfield Center, with Jennifer Kafka Smith directing The Marx Bros. musical comedy, Animal Crackers in September.

The story of Sweeney Todd first appeared in the 1830s in England and was soon adapted for the London stage. When Stephen Sondheim, the celebrated producer of hit Broadway musicals, saw a version of the play in London in the mid 1970s, he asked Hugh Wheeler to collaborate with him on a musical adaptation. When the new Sweeney Todd opened on Broadway in 1979, it became an instant hit and later walked away with that year’s Tony award—Broadway’s highest honor.

The public was shocked but thoroughly entertained by the gruesome storyline of this musical thriller, which focuses on the murderous machinations of a vengeful English barber and his accommodating landlady. The play follows the barber, Sweeney Todd, as he plots his revenge against Judge Turpin, who sent him to prison on false charges—an act which causes the destruction of Sweeney’s family. As Sweeney’s revenge plot accidentally broadens to include other citizens of the corrupt society of Victorian London, his landlady, Mrs. Lovett, finds a way to cover up the barber’s crimes as well as her own. Through this darkly comic story, Wheeler explores the motivations for, and consequences of, revenge.

This new cast consists actors who frequent the Garfield stage, as well as a surprising number of new faces. The cast includes Christopher Wallace, Jane Copple, Melissa McGlynn, Matt Folker, Nic Carter, Shannon Whittaker, Max Hagan, Natalie Lane, Zack Schlag, Howard Messick, Zac Ryan, Kendall Davis, Nevin Dawson, Brian Whitaker, Doug Porter, Marcia Gilliam, Mallory Westlund, Kathy Jones, David Ryan, Brian Whitaker, Gil Rambach, Connor Christopher, Haley Melton, Robbie Spray and Troy Strootmam.

The show runs for three weekends, with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm, April 27-May 13. Come on opening night to sample some of Mrs. Lovett’s meat pies, for sale at the concession stand!

Sweeney Todd is sponsored in part by The Hedgelawn Foundation.

Tickets are $20 general admission, $15 for military/seniors 65+ and $10 for students. They are available online at www.garfieldcenter.org or by calling the Garfield Center box office at 410-810-2060. The Garfield Center for the Arts is located at 210 High Street in Chestertown.

Carpe Diem Arts Presents Dom Flemons

Carpe Diem Arts will present its next “Music in the Gallery” concert on Sunday, April 22 at 5:00pm, a one-hour performance followed by a wine and cheese reception at the Contemporary Tapestry Gallery, 5592 Poplar Lane, Royal Oak, MD near the Bellevue landing of the Oxford ferry.

Featured will be the internationally acclaimed Dom Flemons, GRAMMY® winning musician, singer-songwriter, and guardian of American song traditions.

As a founding member of the renowned Carolina Chocolate Drops, an African-American string band, Dom was able to explore his interest in bringing traditional music to new audiences. Carrying on the songster tradition, Flemons strives to mix traditional music forms with a contemporary approach, to create new sounds that will appeal to wider audiences. In his recent solo albums, Flemons draws from a wide range of styles, including ragtime, Piedmont blues, spirituals, cowboy songs, southern traditional music, string band music, fife and drum music, and jug-band music. A multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Dom plays banjo, guitar, harmonica, fife, bones, bass drum, snare drum, and quills. His latest recording is issued on Smithsonian Folkways and reflects Dom’s extensive research on the remarkable song tradition of Black Cowboys. Little known but true fact is that 1 out of 4 cowboys was African American. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience Dom Flemons in the intimate setting of Ulrika Leander’s glorious tapestry gallery.

This year’s 33rd Annual Chesapeake Chamber Music (CCM) Festival will be held in Talbot County, MD from June 5 through June 17, 2018.  Musicians from the world’s stages will perform the works of both familiar and lesser known composers from the past and present.

To wholly understand the dramatic effect of live chamber music, audiences must both listen and observe.  After three centuries, audiences around the world are still awed by the intimacy of chamber music.  As its name would suggest, chamber music was created to grace rooms rather than halls. Festival goers will enjoy returning to the smaller and more intimate venues of the Tred Avon Yacht Club, Oxford Community Center, and Academy Art Museum, as well as Easton’s Christ Church and Trinity Cathedral. The spacious Avalon Theatre will feature the 2018 Chamber Music Competition Winner as part of its special concert during Week Two.

Sponsors of this year’s Festival include the Talbot County Arts Council and the Maryland State Arts Council. Additional generous financial support from corporate, public and private benefactors enables Chesapeake Music to offer affordable tickets for Festival concerts and recitals; open rehearsals are free to the general public. Tickets go on sale in April 2018.  For additional information, visit www.ChesapeakeMusic.org or call 410 819-0380. Experience the Extraordinary at Chesapeake Music’s 2018 Chamber Music Festival.

On Golden Pond Closes April 22 at Church Hill Theatre

On Golden Pond, is a “a production any theater-lover will want to see”, says Peter Heck in his review.  The classic play from Ernest Thompson, brings a glow to the Church Hill Theatre this spring. Bonnie Hill directs this “warm, nostalgic play” that is an exploration of marriage, mortality, and cross-generational relationships.  The play, written by Ernest Thompson, was a critical success on the New York stage and a blockbuster hit in the film adaptation.  Hill has assembled a fine cast of area residents, including both newcomers and experienced actors with credits at CHT and other theaters.

Ethel (Nita Wieczoreck) and Norman (Brian McGunigle) Thayer stand on their porch at Golden Pond trying to spy the first loons of the season.

On Golden Pond is as simple—and complex—as life itself. Norman Thayer, a sharp-witted and tart-tongued professor, along with his intelligent and nurturing wife Ethel, return to their summer home in Maine for the 48th year.  Brian McGunigle takes on the role of Norman, making him “sympathetic” and also bringing out his “biting wit”.  Nita Wieczoreck is “warm and outgoing in the role of Ethel, a good choice for the role” according to Heck.  The couple are soon joined by their daughter, her boyfriend, and his son.  These roles are taken on by Heather Oland as Chelsea Thayer Wayne, Jeff Daly as Bill Ray, and John Crook as Billy Ray, Jr.  Charlie, the local postman and a family friend, is played by Paul Briggs.  Oland’s performance stands out, and although the role is not as central as that of her parents, Heck states that it is a, “strong performance [that] makes the emotional connections [amongst the family] clear”.  John Crook in the role of Billy Ray, a veteran of CHT’s Green Room Gang summer theater camp “captures the young boy’s varying moods…in a solid performance”.

In his review, Peter Heck made particular note of the “appealing” set designed by Earl Lewin, with construction undertaken by Carmen Grasso and Tom Rhodes.  Lighting and sound are designed and operated by Doug Kaufmann and Patrick Fee respectively.  Meg Lenher and Cynthia Fields assembled the props, while Nita Wiezcoreck takes on double duty procuring costumes as well as acting.  Assisting the director is Kathy Jones, Liz Clarke produces, and Steve Atkinson is the stage manager.

On Golden Pond continues at Church Hill Theatre through April 22, with weekend performances at 8 pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 pm on Sundays.  Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for members, and $10 for students.  Special pricing is available for groups of ten or more. Reservations can be made by calling the box office at 410-556-6003 or online at www.churchhilltheatre.org
