Discover Easton Spotlight: The Monty Alexander Jazz Festival

For jazz lovers across Maryland and beyond, Labor Day weekend means one thing: The Monty Alexander Jazz Festival.

Back for its 10th year, the “best small jazz festival in America” will be held Friday, August 30th through Sunday, September 1st, at the Avalon Theatre in Easton. As an added bonus, there’ll be a Sunday morning jazz brunch at Hunter’s Tavern, located at the Tidewater Inn.

Monty Alexander

Vocalist and guitarist, Allan Harris kicks off the festivities on Friday, August 30th at 8 p.m. The fun continues into the weekend with a free community concert on Saturday at 11 a.m., showcasing guitarists Dan Wilson and Randy Napoleon. Pianist Matthew Whitaker returns to the Avalon stage to delight festival-goers with a 2 p.m. performance, followed by the eponymous headliner, Monty Alexander, at 8 p.m. Sunday’s program begins with a brunch at Hunter’s Tavern, featuring Wilson and Napoleon, followed by pianist Cyrus Chestnut at 2 p.m., at the Avalon.

Guitarists Dan Wilson and Randy Napoleon will perform a free community concert on Saturday, Aug. 31, at 11 a.m.

The inaugural Monty Alexander Jazz Festival, held in 2010, featured two shows: saxophonist Grace Kelly on its opening night and Alexander’s headlining performance the following evening.

Since then, the number of performances throughout the weekend-long program has dramatically increased. Similarly, the popularity of the Festival continues to rise with weekend passes and single performance tickets selling out faster and faster each year!

Three years ago, the Festival established a free community concert in an effort to introduce people to a genre of music they might otherwise dismiss.

Monty Alexander Photo by Alan Nahigian

“I have regarded jazz as a misunderstood music,” says Sikes. “So, by opening jazz up as widely as we possibly can, I think we’re … showing [the community] what the music is about.”

While the festival undoubtedly brings an economic boost to Easton, Sikes’ focus remains on the music.

“Jazz is America’s gift to the world and the raison d’être of The Monty Alexander Jazz Festival,” he says. “The festival … celebrates tradition as well as new expressions that draw on the extraordinary legacy left by earlier generations.”

The Monty Alexander Jazz Festival is partially underwritten by the Maryland State Arts Council and the Talbot County Arts Council. Jazz on the Chesapeake is a program of Chesapeake Music, a member of Discover Easton. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit Jazzonthechesapeake.com or call 410-819-0380.

Discover Easton Spotlight: The Trippe Gallery

Gallery Owner Nanny Trippe

The Trippe Gallery, located on Harrison Street, is poised to celebrate its sixth anniversary at its current location in November 2019. What began in 2011 as a collaboration of studio and gallery space between two artist friends, fine art photographer Nanny Trippe and watercolor painter Don Hilderbrandt, has evolved into one of the Eastern Shore’s finest art galleries. Exhibiting a range of mediums, genres, and styles, The Trippe Gallery represents local, regional, national and international award-winning artists.

Exuding a warm and friendly environment, the gallery is a popular place to visit amongst locals and first-time visitors who enjoy the ever-changing collection of artwork. Monthly, The Trippe Gallery presents a themed exhibit featuring one or more of the gallery artists, or guest artists, with an opening reception during the First Friday Gallery Walk. Well-known gallery artists include oil painters Stephen Griffin, Elise Phillips, Roberta Seger, David Plumb, Zufar Bikbov, Joe Mayer and Meg Walsh, botanical artist Lee D’Zmura, avian etchings by Melanie Fain and watercolors by Kevin Garber, pastel artist Nick Serratore, mixed media work by Sheryl Southwick, monoprints by Zemma Mastin White and Rosemary Cooley, bronze equine sculpture by Joan Bennett, featured Waterfowl Festival sculptor Eric Tariff, and metal sculpture by John C. North.

Involved in the community, it has become an annual tradition for the gallery to feature a show of photography by the mentees in the Talbot Mentors program. In July, the gallery hosts artist demonstrations by several painters competing in Plein Air Easton, now celebrating its 15th year. Year-round, the gallery represents many of the Plein Air Easton artists, current competitors, and renowned alumni whose paintings are in collections worldwide.

“What I love the most about selling art is the connection between the collector and a painting or sculpture,” gallery owner Nanny Trippe said. “Whether it be a beginning collector or seasoned one, it is an individual response to a work of art that is chosen to be enjoyed for many years in a private space or personal office. Art chosen as a gift is also a very special interaction. The goal of the exhibits in the gallery is to present art that will appeal to a broad audience.”

Gallery owner Nanny Trippe with gallery and Plein Air Easton artist Leonard Mizerek with his finished demonstration painting.

Gallerist Nanny Trippe is a many generation native of the Eastern Shore and her love of the natural environment is a muse for much of her photography. She is an art history major and graduate of Richmond College in London, England and Washington College in Chestertown. Her fine art photography has been juried into regional and national shows as well as received awards. In 2017, her show “Trees: Majesty and Mystery” was exhibited at the Academy Art Museum.

The Trippe Gallery is a proud members of Discover Easton. Visit them online at www.thetrippegallery.com. For more information on Discover Easton, including ways to support the independent businesses community of Easton, visit www.discovereaston.com.
