Timeless Beauty Paintings by Kevin Fitzgerald at Troika Gallery

Troika Gallery is excited to announce Timeless Beauty, a show featuring recent works of noted landscape artist Kevin Fitzgerald. Opening on June 2, 2017, during Easton’s First Friday Gallery Walk at 5 pm, the gallery will be serving refreshments and hors d’oeuvres.  Kevin Fitzgerald will address questions about his art beginning at 7 pm.

Rose Dawn, 18 x 24, oil on canvas, by Kevin Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald’s paintings are highly sought after by collectors and known for their ethereal quality. Kevin has a great reverence for the land and sea and fully expresses it in his tonalist paintings characterized by neutral hues, muted atmospheric tones, and mystery. “Be brief, use the least to say the most.  To gain the particular is to lose the infinite. Painting is a solitary communication and strives to go beyond words,” Fitzgerald comments.  Inspired by the French mid 19th-century romantic landscape painters, Fitzgerald’s paintings are evocative and spiritual. His fields of color are both suggestions and subtle depictions. “The landscape, both cultivated and wild, can serve as a reminder of the beauty and power that exists beyond our grasp.”

Fitzgerald attended the Maryland Institute College of Art where he studied with Raoul Middleman, Chairman of Painting. After receiving his B.F.A. from the Institute, Fitzgerald pursued his M.F.A., under the full fellowship, at George Washington University. His work is collected by  known celebrities, as well as private collectors, both national and international.

Art by 35 other Troika Gallery artists is on display during the Fitzgerald show, with new work constantly refreshing the exhibition space. Troika Gallery features The Finest of Fine Art and is located at 9 South Harrison Street and is open every day from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm, Sunday by appointment. For more information, please visit the website at www.troikagallery.com. Timeless Beauty will run through July 3, 2017.

Avalon’s Weekend Marquee Update

The Talbot Spy will be sharing with our readers each week the MCTV produced Weekend Marquee with Tim Weigand as host. We hope you enjoy this short two minute preview of what’s coming up over the next few days.

Church Hill Theatre Announces Cast for “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown”

Director Sylvia Maloney proudly brings Charles Schulz’s beloved comic strip to the Church Hill Theatre stage as this year’s summer musical performance. You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown (Revised), with music, lyrics and book by Clark Gesner, will open on June 9th and run for three weekends.

Schroeder (David Ryan) conducts the “Peanuts” Glee Club, 1st row L-R, Sally (Maya McGrory), Snoopy (Julie Lawrence) and Lucy (Becca Van Aken); 2nd row, L-R, Charlie Brown (Matt Folker) and Linus (Elliott Morotti) as they sing Home on the Range.

Charlie Brown is light-hearted, tender and energetic. As in the comic strip, we share Charlie’s frustrations and pleasures as he interacts with his big, wide and wonderful world. But in this musical stage version, the characters quickly move off the page and into our hearts. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy, who is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder; the frustrated and frustratingly naive Sally, who is still teasing blanket-toting Linus; the playful but sometime manic dog Snoopy; and the loveable blockhead himself, Charlie Brown.

Church Hill Theatre’s production of You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown (Revised) is directed by Sylvia S. Maloney, with music direction by Ellen Barry Grunden and choreography by Cavin Moore. Maloney has assembled an able cast: Matt Folker as Charlie Brown, Becca Van Aken as Lucy, Elliott Morotti as Linus, Maya McGrory as Sally, David Ryan as Schroeder and Julie Lawrence as Snoopy.  Other “Peanuts” characters are played by Samantha Smith, Faith McCarthy, Amy Gilliland, Morgan Armstrong, Jarrett Plante, and Katie Sardo.  Devin Kirchner is the production stage manager, Michael Whitehill is in charge of set design/construction, Brian Draper is the set artist, and Doug Kaufmann is the lighting designer.  Tina Johnson and Erma Johnson are in charge of costumes and Jim Johnson is part of the technical staff.

The show opens on Friday, June 9, and runs through June 25, with Friday and Saturday performances at 8 pm and Sunday shows at 2 pm.  Reservations can be made by calling 410-556-6003 or online at churchhilltheatre.org.

FABRICation
Through July 9, 2017
The exhibition FABRICation is making its way around the country, coming to the Academy Art Museum by way of Art Museum of West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV. Co-curated by Reni Gower, professor in the Painting and Printmaking Department at Virginia Commonwealth University and Kristy Deetz, professor in the Art Discipline at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, FABRICation features seven artists (Erin Castellan, Kristy Deetz, Virginia Derryberry, Reni Gower, Rachel Hayes, Susan Iverson and Natalie Smith) who incorporate a textile sensibility in their artwork through elements of fabric and fabrication.

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

Luminous Forms: Marble and Bronze Sculpture by Shelley Robzen
Through July 16, 2017
Shelley Robzen’s sculpture is amazing in its purity and its celebration of beauty and craftsmanship. Robzen has a sophisticated sense of form, volume and line. Her sculptures are sensual and sensitive. They are pared down to an essential simplicity. Her sculpture is included in private collections in the United States, Italy, France, England, Canada, Norway, Hong Kong, Israel and Japan. Robzen is represented by Carla Massoni Gallery. The Academy Art Museum is presenting her marble and bronze sculpture in her first solo museum exhibition in the U.S.

Diana Kingman: Easton Abstract Through July 19, 2017
Todd R. Forsgren Northern Saw-whet (Aegolius acadicus), 2013 Collection of the Artist
Diana Kingman was born in Philadelphia (1940) and knew at an early age that she wanted to be an artist. Kingman majored in Art History, including a Junior year in Paris in 1960. Upon return she moved to New York, where she graduated with a degree at Columbia University School of General Studies, then worked at the Bettmann Archive. After travels in East Africa, marriage to a Canadian and two children she enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts for their four-year program in painting. During art school and for a number of years afterward she worked in a realistic style, painting still lifes, landscapes and the human figure. In the mid-1980s her style evolved into abstract, eventually dropping all references to subject matter, painting in acrylics on paper. Her work has been shown at galleries in New York, Philadelphia, Wilmington, and Lyon, France, and Kingman is represented in a number of corporate and private collections. Since 2004 she and her husband moved to Easton from the Philadelphia area where she actively continues to paint in her home studio.

The Myth Makers in Maryland: The Mighty Merganser Continuing
Artists Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein (aka the Myth Makers) built one of their iconic sapling sculptures on the Museum’s grounds. Literally speaking, the bird sculpture is based on the Hooded Merganser, a bird which is common in Maryland. Figuratively, however, the artists’ intent is to create a bird sculpture which represents a proud monument to independent thinking and bravery, referencing Eastern Shore native Frederick Douglass.
