Jay Fleming: Island Life

Through November 11

Maryland photographer Jay Fleming has spent years documenting the culture and environment of the Chesapeake Bay. In his exhibition, Island Life, he documents life on Smith Island and Tangier Island, the Chesapeake’s only inhabited offshore islands. Being water-locked and isolated from modern transportation has created a unique way of life on Smith and Tangier, allowing for a preservation of the island’s history and traditions. Jay Fleming discovered his passion of photography upon receiving his father’s Nikon camera in his early teens. He immediately developed an affinity for looking at life through the camera lens and what ensued was an exciting photographic journey that would eventually lead him to his career as professional photographer.

“Anything Goes”

November 28 • Noon

The SS American has set sail from New York to London. Aboard, the lovelorn Billy has stowed away on a mission to stop the marriage of his mystery muse, countess Hope Harcourt, to the millionaire, Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Now, it is up to Billy with the help of showgirls, sailors, and public enemy #13, to find, woo and win back his true love.
