Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David is still held hostage by his day job, which is appropriate because the reality of day jobs putting a limit on artistic activities is just one of the topics Leslie and Clinton cover with local visual artist, Nym Pedersen. His show Synonyms, Antonyms is currently running at Chroma Projects: an Art Laboratory (and will be running until the end of this coming week). We talk about his show and its collection of fluid, minimalist figure drawings and collages. We talk about Nym’s process and his time on the Downtown Mall running Art Snacks. And, of course, we enjoy the observations that come from a mature, long-time, experienced artist. It’s about the work, how you have to work to get the work, how you have to market the work, and how you look at the checkbook and figure out how it’s all going to work this week on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, Leslie soldiers on alone as David is called in by his day job. Still, the show goes on. First we spend some time with Four County Players. Specifically, we have Perry Medlin and Austin Robey, the director and music director of the upcoming 4CP musical Young Frankenstein. Leslie, Perry, and Austin get into the challenges of doing a HUGE summer musical with a lot of enthusiasm and volunteer actors. Next, filmmaker Ty Cooper (trapped in Chicago by airline problems) calls in. Ty updates us on his documentary America’s Darkest Future and then talks about his new, fictional short film, Mingle. Ty — the consumate artistic mover-shaker — even gives us pointers on submitting films to festivals.(Are we allowed to contact the VA Film Festival and ask them to screen Mingle?) (Also, check out the undercurrent in both interviews of how modern technology and social media facilitates the creation of art.) Big theater and small films this week on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
