Academy Art Museum
(EASTON-December 2016)

Beginning December 10, 2016 the Academy Art Museum will open two exhibitions – The 17th National Exhibition of the American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA) and Nanny Trippe: Trees, Majesty and Mystery. The Museum is cosponsoring The 17th National Exhibition of the American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA) with the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. Since the 1970s, ASMA has worked to prepare exhibitions on America’s maritime heritage, with the professional artists and illustrators, and to further promote American marine art and history. America has a long history as a seafaring nation. Whether our last affair with the sea was a stroll on a sandy beach or an offshore sail, we all share a special fascination for the sea and ships. Of course, the special world of marine art is not limited to “a painted ship upon a painted ocean.” The exhibition travels from Williamsburg, VA, to Easton and St. Michaels, and continues various other museums in the U.S. Curators Anke Van Wagenberg (AAM) and Pete Lesher (CBMM) have worked closely to get the best selections in their respective museums. The exhibition will be at the Academy Art Museum through April 2, 2017.

Nanny Trippe: Trees, Majesty and Mystery will feature the photographs of local photographer Nanny Trippe. Trippe has had a love for photography since a young age. What began as recording of pets and nature developed into a love of composition. Trippe, a many-generations native of the Eastern Shore, has studied and created photographs through high school at St. Timothy’s School in Baltimore, and next at Denison University in Ohio and Richmond College in London, England. She joined the Tidewater Studios in 2009 and has exhibited in Lexington, VA, as well as in regional art shows. In December 2010, she and painter Don Hilderbrandt opened Trippe-Hilderbrandt Studios on Harrison Street in Easton. She has won the “Best Black and White,” “Best Amateur” and “Best in Show” in the 2009 Plein Air Easton Photography Contest and was published in “Best of Photography” each subsequent year. The exhibition will be at the Museum through February 26, 2017 and is sponsored by Peg Keller.
