She has spent the last few years thinking about how she can use art to counter the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline. We talk to her about her latest project, The Ties that Bind, a piece that experiements with community sourced art. Next, Brandon LeeBangah blesses the house for the first time. His first album A Long Way from Home is out now. We talk to Brandon about how his business efforts work with his artistic pursuits, and we also talk about the responsibilies that can come from being listened to by kids, especially, who don’t have many good messages coming at them.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, A sick David leaves Leslie and Clinton to do the show like they did it in the beginning. Fortunately, they have two great guests to make things fun. First, Jane Alison returns to the show. She’s taken a detour from creative writing to write a new book about writing. Meander, Spiral, Explode: Design and Pattern in Narrative takes on the strangle hold that “The Narrative Art” has on the way we write. We talk to Jane about her bold move against the canonical practice, about how patterns in nature can be reflected in storytelling, and about how a gain and loss of tumesence need not be the only game in town. Next, Rich Tarbell visits the show for the first time. He and Coy Barefoot have turned Rich’s photographic and oral history of music in Charlottesville, Regarding Charlottesville Music into an exhibit, presented with the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society at City SpaceIt’s a Music Town: Exploring the Sights, the Sounds, and the Stories of Charlottesville in the Modern Rock Era. We talk to Rich about what he learned in doing the book and the exhibit, of how scenes grow and why they shift and why they die. We deep dive with some deep artists here on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
