Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Stories. Telling true stories. Telling funny stories. Telling stories to connect us. Telling stories to self-express. Today on Home Grown we talk with related but different artistic cousins. First Joel Jones, co-founder of Big Blue Door, returns to the show to talk about the latest incarnation of their class Telling True Stories. Joel’s one of the smartest artists that we know so we always love talking to him, though we always feel like we barely scratch his surface. Next we continue our serious talks (or sort of serious) about being seriously funny. Stand-up Chris Alan returns and brings with him fellow comedian Winston Hodges. They’re going to be hosting The Ante Up Comedy Show (Host Battle Edition), and we take the opportunity to talk about the craft of stand-up. It’s a look at the side of art that’s all about stories. (At least that’s our story, and we’re sticking to it.) Of course, all sides of art have a home 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, David and Leslie welcome two sets of impressive artists to our airwaves. First, studiomates Peneople Stone and Esther visit the show for the first time. Penelope is an experieced urban forager who uses her talents to make easter eggs with natual dyes. Esther works exclusively in matzah. They talk about their work and their working relationship and about what they are doing artistically to celebrate Eastover. Next, we’re pleased and wowed to have Charlottesville’s favorite artistic son, Duncan MacMhunna, well known and lauded for his wax sculptures of B-List stars. David and Leslie fight through being starstruck to ask Duncan about his process, his vision, and his keen eye for a celebrity on the rise and on the fall. (Andy rumors that our guests are actually Jessie Conover & Marjory Ruderman from Big Blue Door’s Feminine Hijinks Improv and Andy Davis from Bent Theatre Comedy Improv are foolish and falacious.) It’s April Fools Day on this week’s 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.
