Exhibit - The Art of Rug Hooking  -  Onancock
(3/14/2014 - 5/31/2014)
Calendar Image

The Art of Rug Hooking

 

Ker Place
69 Market Street
Onancock, VA  23417

 

A new fiber arts exhibit adorning the walls of historic Ker Place in Onancock will greet visitors as the museum reopens for the 2014 season with a special evening event on Friday, March 14.

The Federal period, Georgian-style house serves as headquarters of the Eastern Shore of Virginia Historical Society. It was built in 1799-1803 for John Shepherd Ker, a prosperous farmer-merchant, his wife Agnes Corbin Ker and their family.

The exhibit, “The Art of Rug Hooking,” features 22 creations by five artists. It debuted at an opening event on Feb. 14 and will remain on display through May, including for the free “Night at the Museum” on Friday, March 14 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Along with the exhibit, the museum will unveil two others this spring, highlighting Gov. Henry A. Wise and portraits of Eastern Shore residents and an exhibit of paintings by Richard Toft.

The museum also will be open Sunday, March 16, from noon to 4 p.m. to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day weekend in Onancock.

Fiber artists whose works currently are on display at Ker Place include Onancock residents Lynne Fowler and Stella Rohde, Chincoteague resident Mildred Joyce, Elissa Crouch of Cambridge, Md., and Loris Blandford of Frankford, Del.

Joyce, 88, began hooking rugs in 1995 after doing other fiber arts including sewing, knitting and quilting.

She now focuses exclusively on rug hooking.

“It brings me immense pleasure. It is something everyone should try,” said Joyce.

Fowler says she thrives on the tactile nature of fiber arts.

“I find peace when I hook rugs, or knit or spin. The simple process of holding the fabric and having it slip through my fingers brings joy,” she said.

Fowler said rug hooking to her “is usually very personal; therefore I seldom have pieces for sale.”

Most of the material she uses is hand dyed.

“It is another way of controlling the process. ... It is fascinating to me to see how a simple piece of white wool can be transformed by a few chemicals and water into something breathtaking in complexity,” she said.

Easter Decoy & Art Festival  -  Chincoteague Island
(4/18/2014 - 4/19/2014)
Calendar Image


35th ANNUAL

EASTER DECOY

& ART FESTIVAL

 

Chincoteague Combined School
4586 Main Street

Chincoteague, VA  23336 

  

ANTICIPATES WONDERFUL WEEKEND OF TREASURES 


Local and national carvers and artists of all kinds exhibit and sell their works.  Awards are given in various categories including the Curtis Merritt Award of Excellence given to the artist who demonstrates the highest standards of "creativity, character and overall goodness" as voted on by the other exhibitors.  Best Carver and Best Artist are chosen by People's Choice and the Best Photograph of Chincoteague or Assateague is chosen by the committee.  Wooden Easter Eggs decorated by the exhibitors highlight the show each year with some fetching handsome sums. 

Donna Leonard, chairwoman of the show for over 3 decades, says "This year’s show is going to be spectacular! New artists join seasoned veterans at the best decoy and art show on the east coast."  

Decorative and working decoys by Robert Gray, Ron Rosciszewski, Jay Cherrix, David Farlow, Ed Kuhn, Corky Dize, Dale Buffington, Bill Hickson, Russell Fish, Michael Adcock, Ray Whetzel, Ron Stevens, Roy Bohn, Rocky Detwiler, and Bill and Shannon Veasey will be a highlight. Model boats include examples by Eddie Somers, Lou Doughty, John Into and Nancy Price. Talented artists exhibiting in all mediums include Kevin McBride, Ellen Lawler, Richard Toft, Mary Lou Troutman, Carl Knuth, Nancy West, Gerald Putt, Nancy Mitchell, Janet Hong, and Rose Taylor. Fine art photographers John Urlock, Don Parks, Elizabeth Bard, and Stephen Moore will be on hand as well. The show is honored to have creators Robert Savage, Shirl’ Eklund, Dot Truitt, Joan and Michael DeVaney, Karen Phillips, Richard and Jolene Coolidge, Joyce Westbury, Joan Krisher, John Rost, Carson and Bonnie Riley, Laura and Pat Ellison, and Starlight Cherrix. John and Cinda Walls will be on hand with carving supplies, tools and wood.

Items for the Pre-Loved Treasures Silent Auction include platters, unusual serving dishes, Giclee painting of the New Chincoteague Bridge (donated by Kevin McBride), mirrors, crystal frog, and a vintage collection of Southern Living cookbooks. Exhibitors and chamber members have donated items they once treasured to be loved a second time around. Unique items are coming in daily. All proceeds from the Pre-Loved Treasures Silent Auction this year are earmarked for the Veteran’s Memorial Park Playground Fund. What a great way to give back to community and the future of Chincoteague Island.

 Another show favorite is the silent auction of Wooden Easter Eggs. Each exhibitor is given the opportunity to carve/paint/create a unique piece of art from a wooden egg form. The creativity is amazing! Visit www.chincoteaguedecoyshow.com for a complete list of auction items and exhibitors for the 2014 Easter Decoy & Art Festival. Limited vendor space is still available on a first come first serve basis. Call today to be part of this traditional part of Easter weekend sponsored by the Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce.

While visiting one of the "Happiest Seaside Towns in America" named by Coastal Living Magazine in their March 2014 issue, be sure to stop in the Museum of Chincoteague Island to learn more about decoys, gunning clubs, and the over 300 species of waterfowl that call the islands home. TripAdvisor™ also recently ranked Chincoteague #2 in the 2014 Travelers’ Choice Awards Islands.

Orchestra of the Eastern Shore  -  Onancock
(4/27/2014)


Winter 
 Concert

 Historic Cokesbury Church
Market Street
Onancock, VA
 

 

 The Orchestra of the Eastern Shore will end its 2013-14 season with two concerts, “Bookends—Bach to Britten.”

The first performance will take place on Sunday, April 27, at 4 p.m., at the Historic Cokesbury Methodist Church in Onancock; the second will be at Hungars Episcopal Church on Bayside Road in Bridgetown (Machipongo) on the following Sunday, May 4, also at 4 p.m.

 

The program will feature two Baroque concertos, the first by Vivaldi for two cellos. Long-time orchestra member and Chair of the Orchestra’s Board of Directors, Marion Naar, will be joined by her friend Charlotte Sundstrom as soloists in this challenging and dynamic work. The orchestra will follow that with a performance of J. S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, a concerto grosso featuring three soloists in the concertino. Flutists Ally Tarwater and Dan Lawrence will be joined by Lee Jordan-Anders on the harpsichord.   

 

The program will begin with Felix Mendelssohn’s String Symphony No. 7 in D Minor, a four-movement work composed when Mendelssohn was still in his teens. To conclude, the orchestra will play Benjamin Britten’s Simple Symphony, a clever, inventive composition full of good humor that presents significant challenges for all players. Music Director Lee Jordan-Anders will conduct.

 

As always, the orchestra’s concerts are free and open to the public; however, donations are happily accepted.
