“(Global) Awareness” runs Tuesday, April 11Friday, April 21, with a reception on Thursday, April 13, 5:307:30 p.m.

 “Affect + Effect: Art and Social Responsibility” runs Tuesday, April 25Friday, May 5, with a reception on Thursday, April 27, 5:307:30 p.m.

WESTMINSTER, Md. – Works by graduating art students at McDaniel College are highlighted in two Senior Capstone Exhibitions. Both exhibitions take place in Rice Gallery, Peterson Hall, at McDaniel College, 2 College Hill, Westminster, Md.

The exhibitions feature a variety of media, from traditional two- and three-dimensional works to digital and new media.

“(Global) Awareness” runs Tuesday, April 11Friday, April 21, with a reception on Thursday, April 13, 5:307:30 p.m., including a gallery talk at 6 p.m. Students showcasing their works are Suzannah Bannister of Cockeysville, Md., Jennifer Brown of Spotsylvania, Va., Sarah Lighter of Olney Md., Amber Smith of Baltimore, Rebecca Suraci of Mount Airy, Md., and Adriana “Summer” Villarosa of Knoxville, Md.

Suzannah Banister’s work in “(Global) Awareness” focuses on “opacity and color to represent different perceived identities,” while Jennifer Brown examines “how people perceive those with mental disorders.” Both running track and the experience of studying abroad in Australia has influenced Sarah Lighter’s artwork, which includes a website and three games “based off the Egyptian environmental struggles.” Amber Smith’s personal experience with histiocytosis, a rare blood disease, has inspired her to look at the “disconnect between childhood innocence and the harsher realities children often have to face.” Rebecca Suraci said that her work “focuses on perception, both on an individual and cultural spectrum.” In addition, Adriana “Summer” Villarosa uses an array of media from vinyl letters to photography in order to bring awareness to rape and sexual assault.

“Affect + Effect: Art and Social Responsibility runs Tuesday, April 25Friday, May 5, with a reception on Thursday, April 27, 5:307:30 p.m., including a gallery talk at 6 p.m. Students with works in the exhibition are Mei-Le Apalucci of Woodbine, Md., Anna Eckard of Westminster, Md., Sarah McRoberts of Damascus, Md., Hunter Metcalf of Blain, Pa., Rachel Sentz of Felton, Pa., and Hannah Sommer of Taneytown, Md.

Identity and personal interests are reflected in the works exhibited in “Affect + Effect: Art and Social Responsibility with Anna Eckard utilizing multi-media and digital art to examine the change in identity politics in society, focusing on the concept of labels and communities; Rachel Sentz exploring the concept of identity and her personal battles with it through her own artwork; and Hannah Sommer’s current body of work described as a “catalogue of self.” Mei-Le Apalucci’s work “seeks to understand the harsh realities and often complex challenges that naturally occur in life.” Sarah McRoberts exhibits mixed media that examines the changes in music and technology from the 1970s and 1980s to today “using materials and technologies that actually existed during this time whenever possible,” such as vinyl records, videotapes and Rolodexes™; and the inspiration for Hunter Metcalf’s art is nature.

Both exhibitions and receptions are free and open to the public. Rice Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, noon–4 p.m., and Saturday, noon–5 p.m. Call 410-857-2595 for more information. Visit www.mcdaniel.edu for information about McDaniel College.

The Fine Art of the Quilt on Exhibit at the Carroll Arts Center @ Carroll Arts Center
Apr 27 @ 10:00 am – Jun 2 @ 7:00 pm
Share Button

 

The Carroll Arts Center is proud to be hosting an exhibit titled “The Fine Art of the Quilt” from April 27 through June 2, 2017 that features the work of nine talented quilters from Maryland.

Quilting traditions have been part of the United States for generations and began as utilitarian rather than decorative. That all shifted in the 1960’s when quilting finally gained the reputation it deserved as a fine art. From a soft expressive watercolor quality to bold color and abstract design, each quilter in this exhibit brings a unique pattern and stitch to her works of art.

Featured quilt artists include Kay Campbell Anderson (Woodbine, MD), Della Aubrey-Miller (Clarksville MD), Karen Amelia Brown (Westminster, MD), Ann Brakob (Germantown, MD), Elsie Dentes (Frederick, MD), Judy Miller (Woodbine, MD), Olga Schrichte (Frederick, MD), Etta Stewart (Randallstown, MD), Joan Watkins (Frederick, MD), and Carol Yonetz (Frederick, MD). The Gift Shop will feature quilted items made by these artists to tie in with the theme of the exhibit.

Also on exhibit in the Community Gallery, “Lasting Impression” will feature a wide variety of photographic styles, techniques and subject matter by members of the Carroll County Camera Club.

The public is invited to a celebratory reception on Thursday, April 27 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.  Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cash bar will be part of the festivities. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

The Carroll Arts Center is located at 91 W. Main St. Westminster, MD. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are: M, W, F, Sa, 10 am – 4 pm and Tue and Thurs, 10 am – 7pm.  The gallery is also open during special events in the theatre. Please check our web site www.carrollcountyartscouncil.org for more information.

Get ready for some New Orleans’ style sizzle and spice as The Crawdaddies bring their mix of Cajun, Zydeco, Blues, Roots, Rock and Reggae to the stage of the Carroll Arts Center on Saturday, May 6 at 7:30 pm.

Each road-seasoned member hosts an impressive and diverse musical / performance resume, most notably, 2008 Emmy award recipient Greff who toured with Della Reese, Barry White, Joe Williams and Diana Ross.

With an incomparable, groove-laden sound that is unquestionably its own, the Crawdaddies have been featured in many acclaimed publications, have toured the USA extensively earning a strong grass roots following, and are a regular fixture on the national college, festival and theater circuits. The band released its fifth full-length recording entitled “Laniappe” in January 2017. Their previous four CDs have received regular rotation on college radio, internet radio, and broad-format “triple A” radio stations worldwide. The Crawdaddies reached #1 on the Reverbnation Baltimore Blues Charts in Dec 2013!

Consummate headliners, the eclectic, good-time spirit of their music has allowed The Crawdaddies to share the stage with such legendary artists including Etta James, Trombone Shorty, Charlie Daniels, Last Train Home, Buddy Guy, Kid Creole, Buckwheat Zydeco and more.  They were invited to perform on the 2009 Mardi Gras Mambo Tour with Dr. John and the Neville Brothers.

The Crawdaddies are Kraig Greff, accordion, piano and Hammond B3; Chris Huntington, vocals, guitar; Javier Rivera, vocals, washboard, acoustic guitar; Rod Gross, drums and Jay Turner, bass, vocals. Each road-seasoned member hosts an impressive and diverse musical / performance resume, most notably, 2008 Emmy award recipient Greff who toured with Della Reese, Barry White, Joe Williams and Diana Ross.

With an incomparable, groove-laden sound that is unquestionably its own, the Crawdaddies have been featured in many acclaimed publications, have toured the USA extensively earning a strong grass roots following, and are a regular fixture on the national college, festival and theater circuits. The band released its fifth full-length recording entitled “Laniappe” in January 2017. Their previous four CDs have received regular rotation on college radio, internet radio, and broad-format “triple A” radio stations worldwide. The Crawdaddies reached #1 on the Reverbnation Baltimore Blues Charts in Dec 2013!

Tickets are $18 for Adults and $16 for CCAC Members, 18 & Under, and Seniors 60+. Tickets can be purchased on line at www.CarrollCountyArtsCouncil.org or by calling 410/848-7272.   The Carroll Arts Center is located in a restored art deco movie theatre in downtown Westminster at 91 West Main Street.

Hampstead closed its Election Nomination process after the Friday, April 7th 4:30 p.m. deadline. The Town Election will be held at Town Hall on Tuesday, May 9th from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Three (3) Town Council seats are open.  Incumbents Marlene Duff, Joe Renehan and Wayne Thomas were the only candidates who filed to retain their positions.

All three incumbents are well known in the community, having previously served the Town in various capacities.  Mrs. Duff has been on the Town Council for eight years and prior to that she served on the Planning and Zoning Commission for four years; she has also been a manager for the award-winning Hampstead Farmers’ Market since 2011 and has been regularly involved in several community organizations.  Mr. Renehan has served as a Council Member since 2013.  Prior to being elected to Town Council, he served on the Board of Zoning Appeals from 2009 to 2010 before serving on the Planning and Zoning Commission from 2010 to 2013 (the last year of which he served as the Commission Chair).  Mr. Thomas has been a Council Member since 1993 and has been involved in various community organizations through the years: the Hampstead Business Association, the Hampstead Train Station Committee, the Main Street Comprehensive Plan and Advisory Committee and the Hampstead Tree Commission among them.

Each member of Hampstead’s Town Council is assigned an oversight responsibility.  Since May, 2011, Mrs. Duff’s area of Council oversight has been the Farmers’ Market.  In May of 2013 she was also assigned the oversight for Partnership for Healthier Carroll County.  Mr. Renehan’s areas of Council oversight are currently Parks and Recreation and the Police Department; in his previous term he reported on the Town’s water status.  Mr. Thomas has been responsible for the Hampstead Train Station since its Committee was formed in 1997 and has also held the oversight assignment for the Tree Commission.

The Community Media Center has offered all candidates the opportunity to record a video profile, available to view online at http://www.carrollmediacenter.org/municipal-elections-2017/.  These will also be broadcast periodically on Channels 19 and 23 until the election, and will be posted on the Town’s website and Facebook page.
