“Extraordinary Journeys” Exhibit

August 2 • 7 p.m. Talk and Performance

August 3 • 5-8 p.m. Artists’ Reception

Chestertown RiverArts, 315 High Street, Suite 106

This exhibit, “Extraordinary Journey – Expressing Spirit Through Art and Medicine,” is a collaborative project between the healing and creative arts. The concept was born out of the desire to gain a deeper understanding of a healing system that integrates sound healing with Chinese medicine. The exhibit will showcase the works of painter Marj Morani, poet Meredith Davies Hadaway and the music of Jeff Davis in collaboration with Chinese medicine and Acutonics® practitioner, Valentina Morani. The works on display and in performance resulted from Acutonics® and acupuncture treatments focused on the Eight Extraordinary Vessels, which are meridians that have the potential to access and enhance the creative spirit. Call 410-778-6300 or email info@chestertownriverarts.org to make a reservation for the August 2 “Forks and Needles” Creative Lives talk and performance.

Chestertown RiverArts, 315 High Street, Suite 106

This annual Photography Awards Show, “The Soul of Photography,” will be on exhibit in the Main Gallery for the month of August. The theme is “Fragility.” Photographers were challenged to create images that invoke a sense of fragility: delicacy, vulnerability, a passing moment, a threat of brokenness, frailty of life. Photographs created from a wide range of subjects and techniques will challenge the viewers to engage with their eyes, their intellect and their emotions about our fragile existence. The exhibit will hang through September 3. Call 410-778-6300 or email info@chestertownriverarts.org for more information.
