Ruth Starr Rose: Revelations of African American Life in Maryland and the World


Description:

This first comprehensive exhibition of paintings and lithographs by Ruth Starr Rose (1887-1965) offers a rare glimpse into the lives and spiritual world of rural African American life at the turn of the century on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

An Art Students League artist, Rose portrays crab pickers, sailmakers, and soldiers, as well as gospel song illustrations, with a dignity and compassion that expresses her deep love for the residents of the Talbot County towns of Copperville and Unionville.

There will be an opening reception January 15th with a tour of the exhibition by Art Educator Lucinda Edinberg, followed by a hands-on workshop from 3:30–5 p.m.
