Sahler ’89 Silkscreen Featured on Shore Site

Alumnus Erick Sahler ’89, Graphic Design and Art History, was featured on the news site Delmarvanow.com on June 28th, with a focus on his latest silkscreen print for purchase. The piece, entitled “Summer of ’61,”  is based on a photograph of the time, depicting the  Chincoteague, VA’s Island Theatre with its marquee featuring the 1961 film adaptation of Misty of Chincoteague, and a ’55 Ford in the foreground.

Sahler, who worked for Salisbury, MD’s The Daily Times as managing editor from 1989 to 2011, currently sells his artwork and screen prints under his “Erick Sahler Serigraphs” moniker, which was launched last year, according to his website. He spoke of his motivation behind his latest silkscreen, saying that he wanted “to capture the excitement of the young girl in the back seat, going to the theater in Chincoteague to see ‘Misty’ for the first time. Fifty years later, it’s still a wonderful thing to imagine.”
