  • - Everybody has a story to tell, and a new program will help local children put theirs in print. This summer, the Frostburg State University Center for Literary Arts is presenting the Make-A-Book program at regional public libraries.
    This unique opportunity gives students ages 8 to 12 the opportunity to take full creative control of their own book, teaching them the basics of storytelling such as plot and character development, as well as how to format text for the page and add illustrations.
    “This program has been designed to give young authors flexibility that most traditional classrooms don’t offer, allowing their creativity to flow onto the pages of their own publications,” says AmeriCorps Youth Academic Engagement Mentor Josh Mallow, who serves with the Center for Literary Arts.
    Make-a-Book workshops are scheduled at the public libraries in George’s Creek (June 22), Westernport (June 29), Frostburg (July 6), LaVale (July 13), South Cumberland (July 20) and Grantsville (August 10). Each workshop runs from 2 to 4 p.m.
    Parents should preregister their students at the library where their children will attend; space is limited.
    Sponsored in part by the Nora Roberts Foundation, the Allegany Arts Council and the Center for Literary Arts, Make-a-Book workshops are facilitated by Krystyna Poray Goddu, Katie Epps, Mallow and CLA Director Jennifer Browne.
    ASTAR! In Western Maryland provides direct service through service sites located in Garrett, Allegany, Washington and Frederick counties, addressing the Corporation for National Service’s focus areas of Education, Healthy Futures and Capacity Building.
    For more information on the Make-A-Book Workshop or other youth literary opportunities, please call the Center for Literary Arts at 301-687-4340 or e-mail cla@frostburg.edu.

  • | 7:00pm - | Arts and Entertainment
    - As part of its Summer Music Academy Concert Series, Frostburg State University will present a gala concert featuring academy students on Friday, July 28, at 7 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center. A reception will follow the concert. The performance and reception are free and open to the public.
    The students will perform works selected from the following:
    “String Quartet Op. 18 and Op. 127” by Ludwig van Beethoven: Beethoven’s unique string quartets contain genuine emotion and contrasts characteristic of his symphonies. Each sounds almost like a mini-opera.
    “String Quartet No. 1, Op. 41, in A Minor and No. 3 in A Major” by Robert Shumann: In 1842, Schumann began his remarkable instrumental explorations with the three-string quartets. Published together as Opus 41, his composition displays intensely expressive musical poetry.
    “String Quartet Op. 76” by Joseph Haydn: The six string quartets form the last complete set of string quartets that Haydn composed and are among his most ambitious chamber works, deviating from standard sonata form and emphasizing the thematic continuity through the seamless exchange of motifs among instruments.
    “Regenlied” and “4 Balladen und Romanzen for Vocal Duet, Op. 75” by Johannes Brahms: “Regenlied” is a distinctive work in which Brahms sets four texts to music by the poet Klaus Groth. Brahms’ Op. 75 settings occasionally take on the air of a dramatic scene in the tradition of the medieval ballad.
    “Ave Maria” by Franz Schubert: Officially titled “Ellens dritter Gesang” (“Ellen’s Third Song”), this work was composed by Schubert as part of his Opus 52, a setting of seven songs from Walter Scott’s popular epic poem, “The Lady of the Lake.”
    “Piano Quartet” and “Old American Song No. 1 for Voice and Piano” by Aaron Copland: In the 1950 “Quartet for Piano and Strings,” Copland returned to the adventurous path of his youth to produce more “modern” music. “Old American Songs” were originally scored for voice and piano, but they were reworked for baritone (or mezzo-soprano) and orchestra. Song No. 1, “The Boatman’s Dance,” is a minstrel song from 1843.
    The FSU Summer Music Academy was created with the mission to promote classical music education, and its goal is to develop individual musicianship for string, woodwind, brass and piano instrumentalists in a supportive environment. The academy brings top artists from around the world to the Western Maryland region to inspire local residents and develop interest in music programs in all types of educational systems.
    For more information, contact the director of the Summer Music Academy, Karen Liu, at lliu@frostburg.edu.

  • | Arts and Entertainment, C. William Gilchrist Museum of the Arts, Lisa Morshead, Bill Dunlap, Cumberland
    - The Cumberland Cultural Foundation will present “Form and Function” at the C. William Gilchrist Museum of the Arts, 104 Washington St, from June 30 through July 30. The exhibit features works by painter Bill Dunlap and jewelry designer Lisa Morshead. The opening reception will be held July 1 from 5 to 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
    Bill will be displaying a variety of his acrylic on canvas pieces. The city scenes are bold and vivid, with a palpable energy. His black and white triptychs often depict a more ominous side of life today. They are edgy, graphic, and demand attention. Bill’s representations of faces and heads range from stylized and somewhat geometric to grotesque and monstrous in a nightmarish, psychedelic style. His landscapes tend towards the abstract, some with a sketchy pen and ink quality.
    Bill describes his painting style as “accident, randomness, mistakes, chance, and the touching up or editing of such”. He sees complex shapes as the trajectory of life: “from order comes chaos, and from chaos, order”. Many of his works contain subtle messages. Bill is also is a fan of linear and geometric patterns. These can best be seen in the quilting designs on the barn and wall murals he is currently creating all across Maryland as part of a large-scale, ongoing commission.
    Bill’s works have been shown extensively in galleries and museums throughout North America and Europe. These include recent solo shows at the University of Maryland and at galleries in Boston, Miami, Denver, and San Jose. His most recent group shows have appeared at galleries in Copenhagen, London, New York, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles. Bill’s art is included in several permanent collections including the library collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art and the University of Wisconsin. This coming August, he will be the Artist-in-Residence at Moulin a Nef in southwestern France.
    Lisa Morshead began metalsmithing six years ago, using the fusion welding technique that she learned at Penn Alps Artisan Village. She started out working with bronze and copper. Her jewelry is full of flowing lines and the illusion of movement. She utilizes various textures to create uniquely elegant, one-of-a-kind sculptural art pieces that are designed to be worn. Lisa has recently begun adding silver to her pieces to make them even more beautiful and interesting.
    Lisa maintains a fully equipped metal studio in her home. She was the recipient of the 2015 Allegany Arts Council’s first place award as their choice for Emerging Artist. Lisa is currently a full-time faculty member at Frostburg State University.
    The Gilchrist is open from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For more information, visit facebook.com/gilchristgallery, call 301-724-5800, or emailgilchristgallerymuseum@gmail.com.
