Meet the Artist: Lexi Pline at Aloft BWI http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2014/09/19/meet-the-artist-lexi-pline-at-aloft-bwi/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2014/09/19/meet-the-artist-lexi-pline-at-aloft-bwi/#comments Fri, 19 Sep 2014 15:58:04 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=92192 lexi workThe Aloft BWI hotel and the Chesapeake Arts Center is holding a Free “Meet the Artist Reception” featuring photographer Lexi Pline on Thursday, September 25, 2014 from 5:30-7:30pm at the Aloft BWI hotel located at 1741 West Nursery Road, Linthicum, Maryland 21090. Lexi Pline is a senior student at The Performing and Visual Arts Magnet Program in Anne Arundel County Public Schools.

The Aloft BWI hotel’s main lobby features the art of Lexi Pline throughout the month of September. During the reception, friends and family will be able to enjoy free appetizers and cash bar from 5:30-7:30pm, while viewing Lexi’s artwork.

Lexi Pline was born on October 4th, 1997, in Annapolis, Maryland. Ever since a young age, she has been interested in art, an interest that she channeled into photography when she enrolled in the Performing and Visual Arts Magnet Program at her local middle school. Her earliest work was focused more on nature and landscapes, but as time passed, it shifted more towards portrait and documentary photography, settling somewhere between photojournalism and fine-art photography. In her current work, she attempts to capture an essence of humanity, as well as document people, places, and events as she sees and experiences them. Lexi draws from many of her experiences (such as her travels) and her interests (such as gender studies) for inspiration, especially in her more narrative work. Currently, she is a senior in the Performing and Visual Arts Magnet Program at Annapolis High School, where she is also one of the head staff photographers for the school’s yearbook, as well as a for-hire event photographer. She plans to study photojournalism in college in the coming year.

Silhouette artist coming to Wheat on Main Street http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2014/09/09/silhouette-artist-coming-to-wheat-on-main-street/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2014/09/09/silhouette-artist-coming-to-wheat-on-main-street/#comments Tue, 09 Sep 2014 10:31:23 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=92019 silhouette-portrait-14Looking for something unique to do with the kids? Parents and children of all ages will have the opportunity to purchase a heirloom original keepsake in Annapolis, MD on September 11th.

Third generation silhouette artist, Erik Johnson will be appearing at Wheat, 201 Main St., Annapolis, MD from 2 to 6 pm to create this unique and rare art form. Erik began learning the art of silhouettes at the age of 10 from his father, Edward Johnson. He has been creating silhouettes professionally for over 12 years.

The art of silhouettes was highly popular in America from 1790 to 1840. However, once the camera was invented, the era of silhouettes came to an end as a form of portraiture. Now it is a rare art form prized by a new generation who appreciate the nostalgic appeal it conveys.

Erik is one of only 15 silhouette artists in the nation. With a skilled and masterful eye, Erik uses surgical scissors to create an amazing and beautifully accurate work of art. These mementos are created in just five minutes.

All ages are welcome to sit for their silhouettes, priced at $25 for an original and $15 for each duplicate, and framing is available. Appointments can be made online at: wheat.eventbrite.com

In addition to pre-taped segments, the show will include live interviews with elected officials and representatives from area businesses and organizations.

AAACCVB President and CEO Connie Del Signore invites all interested individuals to head to City Dock for the September 5 live show. According to Del Signore, “It will be a great way to introduce Fox 5 viewers to the heart of Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay – its people!”

While Fox 5 is not planning to interview people from the City Dock audience, they will be doing audience shots. Individuals who bring creative signs might just find themselves on TV.

Throughout the summer, Fox 5 TV has been doing Friday “Zip Trips” to selected destinations in their viewing area. The “Zip Trips” generally rally behind a specific event that will be taking place in the featured destination that weekend. Among the events taking place in Annapolis September 5-7 are: the Maryland Seafood on September 6 and 7, Maryland Hall’s Arts Alive on September 5, and the National Treaty of Paris Festival on September 6.

The AAACCVB is a nonprofit, membership-based destination marketing organization that generates revenues for the local economy by promoting Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay to leisure and business travelers across the country and around the world.

After a landmark year in 2013, the Fringe Festival is returning to Annapolis for the 4th year on October 4, 2014. Inspired by the famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Annapolis Fringe Festival is a low-cost, wildly fun one-day event of uncensored live performances by artists who push the boundaries, in some of the hottest venues in Annapolis.  It’s an eclectic mix of music, dance, art, and theater.

Commencing at 4 p.m. and lasting until midnight, the Annapolis Arts & Entertainment District and historic West Street will come to life with comedy, satire, burlesque, music, paintings, and much more. Drawing attendees from DC, Baltimore, Northern Virginia and Philadelphia, the Fringe Festival gives artists an opportunity to perform and show their incredible talent to audiences that might not otherwise see their work.  From Church Circle in downtown Annapolis to Westgate Circle, expect to see the unexpected on the first Saturday in October.

This year, the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County is sponsoring the Annapolis Fringe Festival. Admission price to the event is low—only $5—to encourage wider participation.  Most of the restaurants and venues in the festival area will be offering specials on beverages and food to Fringe Festival button holders. In addition to street performers, there will be seperately ticketed performances inside venues located in the festival area.  One exciting performer already scheduled is Lady Rizo, who will be singing and performing at Rams Head on Stage at 9:00 p.m.

In order to encourage a broader level of participation in the event, the admission price has been kept low.  To help fund the event, the organizers are also running a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to enlist the support of art and performance lovers throughout the region.

Kickstarter is an online crowd-sourcing platform that helps artists and other creative types bring projects to life by setting financial goals and deadlines,

The Annapolis Fringe Festival Kickstarter program is currently underway and supporters have until September 10, 2014 at 10:15 am to help meet the $5,200 goal.

Carol and David Stern to chair Annapolis Opera’s Singable Feast http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2014/08/31/carol-and-david-stern-to-chair-annapolis-operas-singable-feast/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2014/08/31/carol-and-david-stern-to-chair-annapolis-operas-singable-feast/#comments Sun, 31 Aug 2014 12:20:53 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=91691 Carol and David Stern

Annapolis Opera is pleased to announce that passionate opera fans Carol and David Stern will serve as the honorary chairs of its Fourth Annual Singable Feast, the Opera’s principal fundraising event that will usher in its 42nd season.

Carol and David Stern are honored to be named the chairs of this year’s Singable Feast. The Annapolis Opera is fortunate toinclude the Sterns among its generous patrons. They have many interests in addition to supporting the Annapolis Opera, including world-wide travel and enjoying time with their family of 5 children, their children’s spouses, and 9 grandchildren. Mrs. Stern is involved with the New Annapolitans club and is an active committee member of their temple. Mr. Stern is a marathon-running athlete and is a former board member of his synagogue.

“The Sterns are more than simply patrons and supporters of the Annapolis Opera,” commented Annapolis Opera Board President Lee Finney. “David has served as a Board member and has been very active in reaching out to other business owners in the community and helping to raise the Opera’s profile. We’re thrilled that he and Carol have agreed to act as Honorary Chairs of this year’s Singable Feast.”

Though the Opera has experienced much recent success, including a sold-out production of La Bohème last season, no opera company’s costs are completely covered by ticket sales alone. The Opera’s signature fundraising event, the Singable Feast is a gala evening featuring gourmet cuisine and live opera performances. The evening begins with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by a four-course meal and live auction. The Singable Feast dinner menu will be created specifically for this event and is composed of dishes inspired by the operatic arias that will be performed throughout the evening. The evening will culminate in a raffle drawing from 150 tickets ($100 each) for a one week cruise for two people with American Cruise Lines (valued up to $11,500), either to the Historic South and Golden Isles or on the Mississippi as part of a riverboat cruise.

Annapolis Opera has provided professionally staged operas and concerts for the mid-Atlantic region for over 40 years. The Opera’s mission is to present artistically excellent, professional opera productions, educational programs, and other opera-related events all while featuring local and emerging artists.

The Singable Feast will take place at 6:00 p.m. on 27 September 2014 at the Loews Annapolis Hotel, located at 126 West St. Annapolis, MD. Tickets are $150, a portion of which is tax-deductible.

Wishbone Ash to play Rams Head on September 21 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2014/08/31/wishbone-ash-to-play-rams-head-on-september-21/ http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/2014/08/31/wishbone-ash-to-play-rams-head-on-september-21/#comments Sun, 31 Aug 2014 11:19:53 +0000 http://www.eyeonannapolis.net/?p=91955

Wishbone Ash

Wishbone Ash will perform at Rams Head on Stage on Sunday, Sept. 21, on the second leg of their Blue Horizon US tour. The shows feature a performance of the band’s best-selling “Live Dates” album in its entirety, plus tracks from their 2014 release, “Blue Horizon.”

Formed in 1969, the band is world-renowned for pioneering a melodic, twin-lead guitar style that influenced the likes of Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden and, more recently, Opeth.

Wishbone Ash, one of the most influential guitar bands in the history of rock, returns to North America in September for the second leg of their Blue Horizon Tour. Due to popular demand, the group will feature their best-selling “Live Dates” album in its entirety, in addition to tracks from their new studio album, “Blue Horizon.”

After logging more than 10,000 miles touring the South and West Coast this spring, the group will traverse the middle and northeastern portions of the country for the fall tour. Dates are scheduled in 15 states from Colorado to Connecticut with more dates are being added.

Formed in 1969, Wishbone Ash has to its credit 24 original studio recordings, 10 live albums and four live DVDs along with a DVD rockumentary (“This is Wishbone Ash”). The band is led by founding member Andy Powell on guitar and vocals, trading licks with Finland’s guitar wizard Muddy Manninen. Bassist Bob Skeat, a 17-year veteran of the band and in-demand studio musician, sets the pace with Joe Crabtree, one of the best of Britain’s new breed of drummers whose performance credits include Pendragon and David Cross of King Crimson.

Recorded on tour and released in 1973, “Live Dates” is Wishbone Ash’s best-selling album, even outpacing the perennially popular “Argus” (1972), which attained gold status.

We played all these old town halls in Britain in the 1970s and used the Rolling Stones mobile recording truck,” says Andy Powell. “These Victorian venues have great acoustics for rock and roll, so the sound to tape was overall really good; and the audiences were extremely lively, adding to the atmosphere. We had the luxury of choosing between many takes of different songs in many different locations.”

Earlier this year, Wishbone Ash released “Blue Horizon” (Solid Rockhouse Records) to international acclaim. Praised for its stylistic variety and masterful performances, the album features guest artist Pat McManus (Mama’s Boys) on fiddle for two tracks. “Blue Horizon” also includes two songs written by Aynsley Powell (Andy Powell’s son) and one by former Wishbone Ash guitarist Roger Filgate.

According to Andy Powell, the new album’s diversity reflects the culmination of several factors.

The band basically lives together year-round, so we have a very strong level of communication that translates in our performances and recordings,” says Powell. “We’ve come to an era where the industry has to pigeonhole a band as Classic Rock, Prog Rock, Heritage Rock and so on. The truth is that we have always kept our options open and always relied on the musicianship of the players to lead the way. It’s fun to be stylistically diverse and this has in its way, contributed to our longevity.”

Lynyrd Skynyrd cites Wishbone Ash as a primary influence on their style along with Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden and, more recently, heavyweights like Opeth. All have been transformed by the original, legendary twin-guitar approach of Wishbone Ash. There is no other rock band in history that has done more with the twin guitar concept than The Ash.

Longtime fans and new converts will find that Wishbone Ash offers an undeniable concert experience.
