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 also talk about the artists involved and what it’s like to make a piece for Let There Be Light. Then, we talk to improv performer L.E. Zarling. She’s leading a Trans and Non-Binary Improv Workshop and then following it with her one-person show, Wisconsin Laugh Tripast the Ix Art Park. 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.

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

It’s another Sunday morning talk about upcoming art on Home Grown except this time, David and Clinton attempt to do it without Leslie’s class and charm. First, we welcome to the show for the first time Beryl Solla, Professor of Art from Piedmont Virginia Community College and curator of their art galleries. Both their North and South galleries have shows opening up, but David and Clinton get so sidetracked immediately talking art with Beryl that we almost don’t get to them. Fortunately our next guest is an old friend of the show, Edward Warwick White from Four County Players, and he knows how to keep us on track … somewhat. (There was the moment where Clinton and David pitched their musical version of Othello.) Four County’s about to launch their anniversary show The Best of Barboursville: A 45th Anniversary Musical Revue. It’s two great guests that guest great together as David and Clinton struggle to get the Facebook Live Feed to work in the background. That means it’s just another Sunday morning on Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.
