  1. "My Spirit Soars" Gallery Exhibition

    September 3, 11:00 AM - September 27, 6:00 PM @ Artworks@7th Fine Art & Unique Gifts

    The featured artist for the Artworks@7th September show is photographer SueEllen Garner. SueEllen’s photographic exhibit will showcase her journeys through Southern Maryland and Minnesota’s Boundary Waters. From sunrise to sundown, she captures the unusual patterns and sights from her walks and kayaking adventures around the regions. Many of her images highlight the beauty of everyday life often overlooked but in need of further exploration. The images presented include the grayed detail of an old barn with weeds; a foggy morning on the Patuxent; the magenta glow of a sunrise on the Chesapeake Bay; and an elusive loon sitting the nest. As an added bonus, for the September show we will also be featuring works by guest artist Sylvia Hill, our “Best in Show” winner from the May 2015 “Quintessential” show. Sylvia works in pastels and will display a selection of her intimate and beautiful portraits of both people and animals. So come join us for the show’s opening reception on Saturday,

  37. Science for Citizens "Oysters in the Potomac: Harvesting what you plant"

    September 29, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ CBL - Bernie Fowler Laboratory
    142 Williams Street
    Solomons, MD 20688

    Oysters are iconic of both the Chesapeake Bay and our efforts to restore it to a healthy state. Efforts have focused on restoring entire reefs or establishing reserves to restore their ecological function and to support fisheries. Others have worked in developing aquaculture. An alternative being explored in the Potomac River is to use waterman cooperatives who buy “shares” in an oyster program that will plant triploid oysters in the river that will be available for harvest by shareholders after two years. Could this be the future of the oyster fishery? Come and hear how CBL scientists are advising the waterman and the Potomac River Fisheries Commission on the feasibility of this approach. All seminars are free and open to the public. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Please contact Sarah Brzezinski at 410-326-7460, or brzezins@umces.edu with any questions.
