Easton is a beautiful town to enjoy during all seasons, but when spring rolls around, the town seems to come alive with vibrancy and excitement. Local restaurants are able to open their windows and offer al fresco dining, our local parks flourish as spring flowers bloom, and our area springtime events return for residents and visitors to enjoy. One particular event that we look forward to each year is the Academy Art Museum’s Annual Spring Party, which is an excellent signifier of the thriving arts and entertainment scene in Easton.
This year’s Spring Event at the museum – Every Picture Tells a Story – will focus on two outstanding exhibitions that are opening in late April. The first is Ruth Starr Rose’s portrayal of African American life in Talbot County during the twentieth century. The second is Paulette Tavormina’s photographs reminiscent of Old Master still lifes of the seventeenth century. The event, which will be held on Sunday, May 1, begins at 7pm with cocktails in the Waterfowl Building where guests will enjoy Rose’s work on display. At 8pm, dinner will be served at the Museum to the backdrop of Tavormina’s photography. With the underlying mission of promoting the knowledge, practice and appreciation of the arts and cultural life on the Eastern Shore, the annual Spring Party at the Academy Art Museum is not only a fantastic event, but also an excellent reminder of the arts culture that continues to grow and thrive in Talbot County.
The Academy Art Museum was created in 1958 by six Eastern Shore residents seeking to create a place dedicated to the appreciation of the arts. Today, that mission still holds true and is executed year after year with expanding collections, exhibitions, and arts programs.
