SU Arts Minute - May 21-27, 2018
Welcome to Salisbury University’s Cultural Calendar Highlights for the week of May 14.
Author Randolph George recounts the story of his restoration of the aging Chesapeake Bay skipjack Martha Lewis during a presentation hosted by SU’s Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture on Tuesday, May 22. In repairing the vessel, which he purchased in 1993, he discovered the histories, places and people that helped connect skipjacks to the bay.
The Nabb Center also offers two exhibits through Thursday, May 31. “You’re on Indian Land …” explores the history and legacy of the indigenous people of the Eastern Shore and their connections to SU, while “For the Love of Quilting: Modern Quilts of the Eastern Shore” affords visitors an up-close look at the stitching, patterns and purposes of contemporary local quilts.
The SU Electronic Gallery exhibit “Resonating Objects” continues through Saturday, May 26. Artist Margaret Noble uses multisensory sculptures, layered in sound and gesture, to explore human and material relationships through technology and communication.
Looking ahead, the SU Art Galleries exhibit “Cross Currents: Contemporary Art on the Eastern Shore” opens Friday, June 15. Showcasing artists on the Delmarva Peninsula, the display continues through August 17.
