'Wild Delmarva' Reception to Benefit Ward Museum, Public Radio Delmarva

SALISBURY, MD---Delaware photographer Kevin Fleming spent a decade with National Geographic, documenting subjects as diverse as the subatomic world of high-energy physics and the lives of New Zealand sheep ranchers.

Beginning Friday, January 28, images from his popular new book, Wild Delmarva, are on display in the LaMay Gallery of Salisbury University’s Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art. A reception with the author is 5-7 p.m. that evening. Admission is $15, with proceeds benefiting the Ward Museum and Public Radio Delmarva. For tickets call 410-543-6895.

Featuring photos of Delmarva’s waterfowl, wildlife and landscape, Wild Delmarva was a project two years in the making. The follow-up to Fleming’s popular Wild Delaware photo compilation, it has quickly become the No. 1 selling book on the peninsula.

“Kevin has long experience and uses the latest high-tech camera equipment, but just as important, he spends a lot of time in nature, watching and waiting hours each day, every day there is decent light, year in, year out,” said Tom Horton, SU faculty and award-winning environmental author. “It shows in the rarely seen behaviors documented in the book; moments in the lives of animals most people will not encounter in a lifetime.”

Horton, who wrote the forward for Wild Delmarva, will attend the reception between 5-6 p.m.  Also featured is music by harpist Kara Dahl Russell, Public Radio Delmarva's new classical music host.   

The exhibit continues through Sunday, April 10. Regular museum hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday, noon-5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $7, $6 for AAA members, $5 for seniors, $3 for non-SU students. A discounted family admission package is available for $17.
