Academy Art Museum’s September Events

September 1, 2018 @ 8:00 am - September 30, 2018 @ 5:00 pm


All exhibitions are sponsored by the Maryland State Arts Council, the Talbot County Arts Council, and the Star Democrat.

AAM @ 60: The Diamond Exhibition

Through October 14

Free docent tours: Wednesdays • 11 a.m.

Part II of the Academy Art Museum’s “Anniversary Exhibition, AAM @ 60: The Diamond Exhibition” honors six decades of building the museum’s permanent collection, telling the story of the growth of the collections resulting from the gifts and bequests of several key art collectors, as well as more recently the support of the Collection Society. The exhibition presents a wide variety of works, including work by Ansel Adams, Leonardo Drew, Rembrandt and Ann Truitt, representing the creative genius of artists from Europe and the United States, spanning from the 17th century to the present.

Jay Fleming: Island Life

Through November 11 (partial interruption during Craft Show)

First Friday Artist Talk and Book Signing: Friday, September 7 • 6 p.m.

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 the people have 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 to looking at life through the camera lens and what ensued was an exciting photographic journey that would eventually lead him to his career as a professional photographer.

AAM Public Art Project

Artist Julia Vogl’s social sculptures incorporate public engagement, architectural interventions and color. She will unveil the public art project in the museum’s courtyard during the museum’s birthday party. The project will focus on creating 60th-themed linoleum plates to print bunting flags, which will hang streaming in the courtyard for the party. It’s a community-based process and Julia will work with 40 to 60 volunteers to create the art project in the week prior to the event. To participate in the workshop the week of September 8, contact Amanda Beck at abeck@academyartmuseum.org.

Triangles for the Community Art Project

The Academy Art Museum is turning 60 in 2018 and is calling all students, teachers, professional artists, amateurs, families, friends, and everyone in between to pick up a free card stock triangle at the museum’s front desk. Participants are encouraged to draw on the triangle, paint on it, write on it, make holes in it, and glue things to it. Completed triangles should be returned to the Museum by September 30. Watch as the museum re-creates its logo on the front wall of its Atrium – triangle by triangle – to form a giant community mosaic.

Open MIC

September 10 • 7 – 9 p.m.

On the second Monday of the month, the Academy Art Museum’s Open Mic is a monthly occasion for the community to share and appreciate the rich tapestry of creativity, skills and knowledge that thrive in the region. Contact Ray Remesch at RayRemesch@gmail.com for additional information.
