Narratives of the Soul

Runs July 2-August 2,2016

Reception Date: Thursday, July 28, 2016 | 5:30-7:30pm

Free Admission

“Narratives of the Soul” is an exploration in storytelling. Through paintings, photographs, and the written word, memories of family, adventure, friends, and service unfold for the viewer.

Chris Peregoy’s “Pathological Content” combines ghostly ancestral imagery with emotionally derived painting. By comparing photographs from his childhood with the images that remain in his mind, he seeks to examine the physical and emotional ideas of “home.” Turning inward, his paintings are an attempt to unearth the familial stories that ground his identity within these memories and daydreams and to make sense of their meanings.

Steven H Silberg’s “Sole Connection” turns outward creating an archive of other’s stories. Since 2004, he has been collecting stories and images of shoes with the goal of virtually and metaphorically walking a mile in another’s shoes. Through the public presentation of these stories, he offers the rare chance to share in significance of small moments with not only friends and family but with strangers and our community at large. Viewers are invited to share their stories and become part of the collection at

Chesapeake Arts Center Presents:

Artist Jay Nauman at the Aloft BWI Hotel

Exhibit Runs June 2-August 3

Free Admission

Jay Nauman is a young contemporary artist based out of Washington D.C. with roots in Annapolis and Baltimore. While attending a 100 level design course at Towson University, he found his inspiration through a professor that introduced him to the world of vibrant Color-Aid Paper. This introduction to a new and specific medium of paper ignited what has now spawned into a growing variety of around 50 artworks. He invests countless hours into handcrafting each individual piece by mingling thousands of different paper colors with an Xacto knife and glueing them to a sheet of bristol pad paper. Some of the larger works have taken hundreds of hours to complete over a span of months to sometimes a year. It is difficult to explain the knife cutting precision and time commitments without taking a closer look at the original works themselves.
