In Julie’s newest work, the combination of her interest in the complex designs of the natural world and her constant exploration of “what if?” come together to create tactile surfaces with both visual and actual dimension.

Light refreshments will be served. Face masks are suggested.

In 1887, Indian humanitarian Pandita Mary Ramabai visited 65-year-old Harriet Tubman Davis in Auburn and wrote about Tubman's life story in a letter to her daughter Manorama. Her account shows us not only how Tubman Davis spoke about her life, but why she inspired people across the world. Phillip Hesser will discuss this meeting of "remarkable women" - which included an "Indian girl from the far West" who also met with Tubman Davis - and how Tubman Davis' life story became a life-changing experience.
A former Adjunct Professor at Salisbury University, Phillip Hesser, Ph.D., "progs" through the land, life, and livelihood of the Delmarva past with special attention to south Dorchester County, Maryland. He is the author of What a River Says – Exploring the Blackwater River and Refuge (2014) and A Guide to Harriet Tubman’s Eastern Shore – The Old Home Is Not There (2021). When he is not sleuthing, he can be found running the marsh roads and joining his pint-sized pooches Marshall and Bayly on their explorations of the paths taken by deer and foxes.
This event is free and open to the public, and will also be live-streamed via Zoom. Contact email@example.com to request a link. A members reception with the author will be held prior to the event at 5:30 PM. Please contact us to join or renew your membership.

ATLYS returns to GMF this May to kick off our 2022 season. In collaboration with Anya Wilkening, GMF’s musicologist and resident scholar, ATLYS will preview some of the musical motifs of our season. We’ll trace the development of the string quartet genre all the way from Haydn to ATLYS’s crossover arrangements of American pop rock and ska-punk, and voyage across the world to explore the intersection of folk and art music in the establishment of national styles.
