Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie get into it with two artists newly into their artistic careers, who’ve come to our lovely, nazi-convicting town from other countries. First, we welcome Uzo Njoku. She is a visual artist working in paint and a fourth year student at UVA, originally from Nigeria. We talk about her technique and subject matter (black women) at her current show, Uzo Njoku: Out of the Shadows which has just opened at New City Arts. We also talk about Uzo’s emerging artistic philospophy. Next, we head over to the world of writing with Helen Chandler. She’s originally from Ireland and lives and writes here now. She’s recently taken a turn towards non-fiction essays, and we talk about what’s behind that move. We also talk about her current project — a book about her aunts. You can hear some of that work when she shares the bill with Sam Bush at the Charlottesville Reading Series at New Dominion Bookshop. It’s two artists outside of their home cultures talking about how they’re working thoughts about those cultures into their work. So never say you don’t get some culture on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie field two call-in guests. First, it’s time again for Let There Be Light at Piedmont Virginia Community College. We talk to local artist and curator James Yates as well as Beryl Solla Chair of Visual and Performing Arts at PVCC. James and Beryl have been doing Let There Be Light for twelve years, and we talk about the show’s inception and what it has grown into.

We have a great talk with L.E. that starts with Wisconsin Laugh Trip and continues into a discussion about how improv helped her find herself as trans and then how she finds being out as trans and doing improv for other people. We swear we didn’t plan it, but it’s another show about art bringing people together on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Today on Home Grown, David and Leslie welcome back two artists to the show — one familiar face and one of our earliest guests. First, Ty Cooper returns. His first fiction film Mingle just showed last Saturday at The Paramount Theater, and he brings with him his assistant director Lk Schwendig from Boston and his actor and assistant director Precious Coleman from New York City. Lk and Precious talk about how Mingle started, what it was like working on the film, and what a good collaborative process looks like. Next, it’s local actor/director/singer Shelly Cole. She’s currently the music director for Piedmont Virginia Community College’s upcoming production of a 2017 musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s As You Like It. Shelly talks about how this show is a combination of old (Shakespeare) and new (modern music). She also talks about how director Brad Stoller is bringing in different groups in the community.
