‘Ella the Camel’ at the Artists’ Gallery

Sally Clark is the fea­tured artist for No­vem­ber at the Artists’ Gallery in Chestertown, lo­cated at 239 High St.

There will be a re­cep­tion from 5 to 8 p.m. First Fri­day, Nov. 2. The show will hang through the month.

Clark will be fea­tur­ing her il­lus­tra­tions from her first chil­dren’s book ti­tled “Ella, the Some­what True Story of a Moroc­can Dromedary Camel.”

The au­thor, Mary James, also will be in at­ten­dance.

Ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease, the book is not only whim­si­cal in de­sign but ed­u­ca­tional for both chil­dren and adults.

Clark is re­cently re­tired from teach­ing art. She cur­rently en­joys paint­ing whim­si­cal im­ages on fur­ni­ture as well as mu­rals, a news re­lease states.

Water­col­ors are her true pas­sion, the re­lease states. Her sub­ject mat­ter ranges from flower gar­dens to house por­traits to pets.

Clark re­ceived a Bach­e­lor of Arts de­gree from Rhodes Col­lege in Mem­phis, Tenn. and an art ed­u­ca­tion de­gree from the Uni- ver­sity of Mem­phis. She con­tin­ued her in­struc­tion by earn­ing a cer­tifi­cate of stud­ies from the In­sti­tute of Amer­i­can Stud­ies in Aix en Provence, France.

Clark is a mem­ber of the Work­ing Artists Fo­rum in Eas­ton, the Kent Is­land Fed­er­a­tion of Art and the Queen Anne’s County Arts Coun­cil. She also is a part­ner in the Artists’ Gallery in Chestertown where a thor­ough dis­play of her work can be seen.

‘Mur­der on the East­ern Shore’

Join the His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety of Kent County at 4 p.m. Fri­day, Nov. 2 for “Mur­der on the East­ern Shore the Case of Or­phan Jones.”

The pre­cip­i­tat­ing events and the trial of Euel Lee, alias Or­phan Jones, make a com­pelling story about the stresses and strains of De­pres­sion Era Worces­ter County, a news re­lease states.

Speaker Joseph Moore, au­thor of the 2006 book based on oral his­tory and archival re­search, pro­vides ac­cu­rate de­tail with em­pa­thy for all par­tic­i­pants in this saga of a sense­less mur­der and the ef­fort of a small, ru­ral com­mu­nity to deal with its prej­u­dice and to see jus­tice served.

The Bord­ley His­tory Cen­ter is lo­cated at 301 High St. in Chestertown.
