Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie are back on the mic with two new artists. First Susan Patrick comes on the show for the first time. She’s primarliy a painter, but she comes to us to talk about her 20 year side project — graphite and ink drawings of discarded objects that she’s found and arranged. Her show, Debris is up at New Dominion Bookshop now, running through the month. David and Leslie ask Susan about her process in this work, her artistic philosophy, and the importance of appreciating the little things that get discarded and ignored. Next, author Katie Baldwin returns to the show. Her second romance has supernatural adventure and is called Ghost of a Chance. We talk to Katie about what writing book number two was like and what research she both did and did not need to do to depict serial killers, 90s Satanism, and a heavy metal band. Once artists let themselves out of their studios, we get them in our studio to talk to you here 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 guests who speak softly yet carry some big art. First Rafael Scarfullery comes on the show and is very patient as we commit ourselves to correctly pronouncing his name. Scarfullery is a professional classical guitarist, and he has started Guitar Charlottesville to promote classical and classical influenced guitar in Charlottesville. We talk about GuitarCharlottesville and get a chance to question our stereotypes with classical music. Next, Piedmont Virginia Community College’s Brad Stoller returns to the show, as it’s time for his annual Theater of the Oppressed Workshop. Brad describes what the “Theater of the Oppressed” is and how he and his partners (Matthew Slaats and Mecca Burns) work it into a workshop. We also talk to Brad about art’s role in addressing the need for safety. It’s the art that quietly moves this week on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, Clinton is on his own, holding down the fort with two fascinating sets of guests. First the Accessible Music Project’s co-founder, director, and board president Greg Morgoglione visits the show for the first time. The AMP works to bring music to the “access-limited” population — people in hospitals, assisted living communities, and nursing homes. Clinton talks with Greg about the preconceptions of playing to those communities versus the reality, about how both artist and audience benefit, and about how his organization challenges our very assumptions of where art is done and who gets to have access to it. Next, our month-long focus on the McGuffey Art Center’s Black History Month exhibit comes to an end. Our final in-studio artist is Michael E. Williams. Williams works in oil paint, painting vibrant scenes of Black Charlottesville, many of which are disappearing. We talk to Mike about his approach to his subject matter and about his use of color. Finally, we round out the month with organizer Bob Anderson shouting out two absent artists in the show — deceased McGuffey member Liz Cherry Jones, who has a retrospective in the exhibit and Charlottesvillian-turned-Californian Rose Hill, who boldy takes racist images (a la and including Little Black Sambo) and makes them a part of her art. She also started the Inmate Art Program at the Albemarle Regional Jail, which current runner Daniel O’Niell talks about. Today we end up looking at a lot of preconceptions people attach to art on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie are back with two more groups of artists. First, Geri Schirmer returns to the show.

It’s about to start a series of performances with a show at Live Arts Theatre. With Geri is director Denise Stewart and teen actor Sophia Colby. They talk about the issue of assault and abuse in teen relationships and what it’s been like to work on a play that dramatizes and addresses these issues. Next, our month-long focus on the McGuffey Art Center’s Black History Month exhibit continues with artists JaeJae Johnson and Anthony Scott. Anthony and JaeJae are both portrait artists. They talk about their influences and what is compelling about capturing the human face. It’s art for the public and art for the personal on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie find themselves with two more great guests. First, cellist Wes Swing visits the show for the first time. Coming from a classical background, Swing has also put time into developing his improvisational skills. Today, Wes takes all of that into playing with live looping. In fact, Wes will be teaching a Live Looping Workshop at the Front Porch Roots Music School this coming week. We talk to him about looping, what it’s like to work with it and how it shapes his music. Next, our look at the Black History Month exhibits at McGuffey Art Center continues with two of their featured artists. Dena Jennings is a doctor and lover of science who makes and plays gourd based banjos. Dr. Jennings talks about the various ways she connects to her works — aestheticly, intellectually, and culturally, to name a few. Bolanle Adeboye is an artist whose current installation of found fabric at McGuffey marks a move for her from the representative to the abstract. Warm up that coffee and kick up your feet. The art is on deck at Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
