Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, Leslie deals with “The Tease” and the “Taking of the Vows.” First, we are pleased to have on the show for the first time Deanna Danger from Richmond’s Boom Boom Basics and Butchertown Burlesque. She’s been performing Butchertown regularly in town, and she’s just started a new burlesque series at the Ix Art ParkRemIX: A Neo-Burlesque and Variety Show. We talk about the new series and also talk about burlesque in general — What is it? What are people’s misconceptions? What’s great about it? Is there still a stigma against it? Then we turn to another theatrical production with Blair Wingfield and Kasey Lohr from ShenanArts’ upcoming production of the musical comedy about a wedding, It Shoulda Been You. Which interview gets naughtier? You’ll just have to listen to today’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.

Blokes on the Bench host Andy Richardson and the rest of the blokes discuss week one of the new 2018/2019 Premier League season. Liverpool looks to be in top form, and favorites to catch City this year, with signings during the summer to bolster their squad. And while West Ham also spent some cash during the summer, Liverpool beat them comfortably. City continues to be in top form beating Arsenal, while United won over Leicester City at Old Trafford on opening day. Will this silence critics of Mourinho who by all accounts had a less than perfect transfer window? All that and all the rest of the league news. Plus we discuss the rising costs of watching top flight European football with subscription packages taking away what was free to watch on cable in previous years. Join us for a great show!

Blokes on a Bench is heard on WPVC 94.7 Sunday evenings at 6:00 p.m.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David throws down with two righteous groups of guests visiting the show for the first time. First, we welcome Lisa Jevack, Assistant to the Director and Early Visions Coordinator of The Fralin Art Museum and Charlene Green, Manager of the the Charlottesville Office of Human Rights. The Fralin and the City are partners in The Signs of Change Project along with The Jefferson School African American Heritage Center and The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative — a project that seeks to use art to raise the profile of African American history in Charlottesville history. Then — you maybe have seen him on the Downtown Mall — here, photographer Eze Amos steps out from behind the camera to talk about his artistic goals and how and why he came to focus on photographing people on the Downtown Mall. He is New City Arts’ current artist in residence, and you can see Eze’s work at his show, Eze Amos: Cville People Everyday. It’s art for the people and art about the people today on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, it’s week three of David stuck in the clutches of his day job. So, in his absence, Leslie welcomes back two former guests to the show. First, expressionist painter Adam Disbrow makes his second appearance on Home Grown. He’s got a new show called UTOPIA: New Works by Adam Disbrow going up at Mudhouse for this month’s First Fridays. Adam is a great artist to talk to, and the discussion very quickly dives down to his thoughts on “the stages of creation.” He also talks about UTOPIA — about the show, about the piece that shares the show’s name, and about the show’s other pieces. Then the only thing that can raise our spiris from having to say goodbye to Adam is to say hello again to guitarist Greg Brown. His new album Greg C. Brown drops August 10. Greg talks about the diverse range of original songs on the album, spanning a number of years. He also performs a song from the album live for us. We’ve got two great local artists talking about their art. What more do you need from Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art?

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.
