Silk 'n Style

by Emery Roth II

with Rick Pauline and Dawn Dingee

discussion & presentation

The Klotz Throwing Mill in Lonaconing, Maryland, is an accidentally preserved, "gilded age" silk mill from the beginning of the 20th century. View it through the eyes of eight photographers who traveled there in two groups in the past year. Consider how different eyes convert the experience of the mill into still images, learn about the region, and join a discussion as we consider whether Style matters.

Orchid Lust

Silk is slippery.
It murmurs in 
plush, Victorian syllables
that shimmer like gossamer.

Swaddled in purple velvet's 
downy cushion 
we remember that silkiness begins in the guise of a moth 
or a burrowing worm or tentacled arachnids, poised and still.
