“Duality,” the title of guest artist Susan Holt’s show at Main Street Gallery for March/April 2020, is a theme she has been working on for many years and is, she says, inspired by Buddhism. The Maryland artist, who is also an art professor and Director of the Mosely Gallery at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, describes duality as the “illusion of separate-ness.”
“In our world today,” she says, “the concept of irreconcilable binary oppo-sites has particular political and social relevance.” To translate the ideas of duality into visual art for her show, Susan is creating abstract works and employing text. In one of the gallery’s large, paned windows, she will cre-ate a site-specific installation. She will use translucent fabric to recreate another layer of the ordered, mathematical grid pattern and juxtapose it with the chaos of an organic line that weaves in and out of the hanging struc-ture. Her drawing, “Us/Them” will be incorporated into the piece. She invites viewers to explore the imagery and also to reflect on the underlying con-cepts.

MSG Artist Paints 2019 Oyster Tin
Hoopers Island Oyster Co. unveiled the 3rd Annual Chesapeake Heritage Oyster Tin on Saturday, November 9. The third edition collector’s tin honors Dorchester county’s watermen heritage. Managing Partner Ricky Fitzhugh commissioned Cambridge resident Lesley Giles to create this year’s art. Rendered in vibrant shades of crimson, salmon and gold, the original watercolor captures the tradition of hand tonging for oysters as the sun rises over Hoopers’ iconic lighthouse. Main Street Gallery is proud to claim Lesley as one of our own.
The Hoopers Island Heritage Tin SIGNED by the artist is available for purchase for $30 at the Main Street Gallery, although we have a limited supply. So, hurry in for your tin before they are all gone.
