Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art

Today on Home Grown our co-host Leslie M. Scott-Jones returns from abroad just in time jam with David and talk to … Boomie Pedersen, Chris Baumer, and Kiri Gardner from Live Arts Theater. They are cast members of the upcoming production, Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance. The conversation flows from what Albee’s work brings to the stage to the recent casting controversy to background of this production. Then, just when you thought the show couldn’t get better, artist Bob Anderson visits the show for the first time in anticipation of his upcoming exhibit featuring his figure drawing that is surprisingly both realistic and abstract at the same time. Listen to how Picasso and Cubism influenced this non-Cubist show — Les desmoiselles at McGuffey Art Center. As always, it’s artists talking art 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

On today’s Home Grown David Vaughn Straughn and Leslie M. Scott-Jones host a roundtable discussion with artistic directors Boomie Pedersen and Bree Luck and playwright Scott Dunn. They talk about recent events where playwrights and their agents have shut down productions for not following their wishes and the greater responsibility for theaters, especially community theaters, to reflect their communities. Then David welcomes back one of Home Grown’s favorite guests, Brian Wimer from the IX Art Park to talk about how their upcoming arts festival which commemorates the Summer of Love can help bring people together. It’s all Peace and Love at Home Grown: Your Show about Local Art.

Home Grown is heard on 94.7 WPVC the Progressive Voice of Charlottesville, Sundays from 10 AM to 11 AM.
